Neil Young surrounded @ Carnegie Hall on 1/9/2014
Neil Young @ Carnegie Hall

Neil Young has just one night left -- tonight (1/10) -- of his four-night run at Carnegie Hall. We already posted videos and setlists of the first two nights, and now we've got a set of pictures of night 3, which happened last night (1/9), in this post. The shows have seen Neil in solo mode, focusing mostly on his early '70s era. Here's what the NY Times had to say:

At times, there was a rustling quiet while Mr. Young fiddled with his harmonicas; these moments were often punctuated by exhortations or song requests. ("You guys finished?" Mr. Young groused at one point, shooting a look toward the balcony. "No, you paid real good money to get in here, so you should be able to listen to each other.")

But whatever tensions gathered around the stage, they served a function, notably when Mr. Young was unpacking songs with a social or political bent. The tune that got derailed by the offbeat clapping, and then successfully restarted, was "Ohio," which he wrote in response to the 1970 Kent State shootings, and recorded as a member of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. It led into a grave, potent version of "Southern Man," with Mr. Young tightening his voice into a blade as he spit the lyrics "I heard screamin'/And bullwhips cracking."

More pictures of night 3, along with a few videos and the setlist (which have basically been the same each night) from that show, below...

Dude does not change up setlists

Wrong, 10:20, I see at least three different songs from Tuesday night's show, all of which I wish I'd heard.

This actually sounds really good and I'm sorry to have missed it.

Oh sorry! Wasn't I supposed to say something shitty here?

Easy face value at venue - could have bought 10 pairs

NYTimes quote refers to the first show not the show mentioned above.

10:27- true, but the version he did of Mr. Soul was amazing on Tuesday.

Usually old guys playing old songs is lame and/or sad, but not this performance. A brilliant artist and I feel blessed to have attended.

I waited outside ch every night looking for a free ticket. Finally after 4 days and a total of 10 hours in the freezing cold someone gave me a free ticket to last night's show.

Cool - so you waited the nite there wasn't a show as well?

He's boring on his own. Wish he would tour with his solo band again.

I too was very happily surprised and frankly blown away but how well his voice sounded.

"Easy face value at venue - could have bought 10 pairs"

wish that were true.

also, keep in mind, some face value tickets are $400!

But then you swooped in and stole the title 11:18, congratulations.

Posted by Anonymous | January 10, 2014 11:55 AM

11:18: I guess 10:47 was supposed to say something like "grimes killed it" or "Hot Chip was the bee's knees" or some stupid shit that you'd probably prefer.

11:18 here to respond to the previous 2 tools although probably the same guy.

11:55-needs work. The "i know you are but what am i" comeback is the mark of a unintelligent idiot

11:57-No but let's keep it in perspective. I saw one of the shows and I have seen Neil for years. Let's not get carried away like some schmucks on here are doing with these shows. They were very good. Neil is always very good but these were not earth shattering or something insanely special. Give me a fucking break. Frankly I have seen Neil solo much better in years past.

And now I feel doubly blessed that I've trolled a troll.

The bootlegs recordings of the shows that are out sound great so you everyone can hear for themselves how over the top and over hyping some people are being. Plus you get the added bonus as someone said in another thread of hearing the show better than the people who sat up in the balcony.

Hello everyone, this is Kevin from Carnegie Hall. Quite a discussion going on here about one of our recent shows; that is what we like to see. If you enjoyed the show, or if you appreciate having a world-class concert venue with old New York charm, terrific acoustics, and wonderful sight lines, please consider supporting the Hall. http://www.carnegiehall.org/Support/

Best,

Kevin

Oaky, slightly smoky, hint of nutmeg, with traces of cinnamon, believe it or not no hummus scent

I will say this - at least Neil Young isn't sitting up front staring at some computer screen like Lustmord or those clowns in Throbbing Grissel.
