drunk fans yelling stuff made Neil Young’s Detroit solo show a “rough night”

A post shared by Bob Tyrrell (@bobtyrrell) on

Neil Young has been on a short solo tour that wraps up tonight (7/12) in Boston. Most of the shows have gone well, but his Detroit show at Fox Theater on July 3 had some some folks who were celebrating Independence Day early and hard. The Instagram-er who took the photo above wrote:

Last night was the most annoying crowd I can remember in the thousands of concerts I’ve attended. People clapping along completely out of time. All night people yelling songs they wanna hear, like Neil’s gonna go “sure, I’ll play that right now for ya’”. Neil was trying to tell stories in between songs, but people kept yelling shit so he gave up a couple times.

Neil felt the same way as he wrote on his Neil Young Archives site in a post titled “Rough Night” (via Metro Times):
