Neil Young played TD Garden (setlist), hits MSG tonight; “Neil Young Series” on display at Morrisson Hotel Gallery

Neil Young

Because he’s trained his audience to not need an hour of hits, because he doesn’t have to sing like Brian Wilson or shake his behind in chaps like David Lee Roth, his sound and delivery endure. No one but Young (with Crazy Horse) could play an almost half-hour-long “Walk Like A Giant” that was 5 percent melody, 95 percent feedback and over-driven bass and have fans dig it.

That’s not to say “the hits” weren’t the highlights. A tune as sweet and pure as “Cinnamon Girl” remains rare, and at times the new stuff seemed to pile up crushing the audience instead of uplifting it.

But when an artist can have a great night in front of ten-thousand without playing his most popular songs (no “Old Man,” no “Like A Hurricane,” no “Heart of Gold”), it’s a stunning achievement. – [Boston Herald]

Neil Young & Crazy Horse played Boston’s TD Garden last night (with Patti Smith opening), a 13-song, two-and-a-half-hour set that The Boston Herald said may have been their “best show ever.” You can check out the setlist below. They’ll do it tonight (11/27) at Madison Square Garden with Patti Smith opening and tickets are still available. Tickets are also still available for their show on Monday (12/3) at the Barclays Center (also with Patti Smith and Everest).

Meanwhile, at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in SoHo they are currently showing Jenice Heo’s “Neil Young Series,” a exhibition of paintings based on Young’s music. A couple of her works from the series can be seen below and the exhibit will be on view until December 31st, 2012.
