Neil Young

Although this blog is all about my motorcycling experiences, I must make an exception and post some pics from the Neil Young concert we went to last night at the Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne. What a show! Neil was in fine form and his vocals and guitar playing exceeded my expectations by a very long margin. It was very much a rock, electric guitar show with very few ballads. Here is a highly pixelated pic taken with my little Canon point and shoot (didn't take the SLR). We are in the middle of a heat wave and it was around 41C (105F) when we arrived at 7.00pm. With the Australian Open tennis on right next door, the traffic in Melbourne was horrendous.

Incidentally, it was still 33C when we left at 11.00pm and we had an overnight low of 28C (82F) - extreme stuff. Expecting a top of 44C (111F) today & 40 Friday.

Songs he played included Cinnamon Girl, Just Singing a Song, Won't Change the World, Unknown Legend, Light a Candle (which was beautiful), Mother Earth, Four Strong Winds. Cortez was a standout though. Of the acoustic numbers The Needle and the Damage Done & One of These Days were my favorites.

The encore of the Beatles song, A Day in the Life was a bit strange though.

Thanks for a great night Karlo & Jen.
