Neil Young played the first show of his four-date residency at New York’s Carnegie Hall on Monday of this week, and according to a recap from Rolling Stone, the singer left fans feeling anything but disappointed.
Young reportedly rocked a set that spanned 2 hours and 20-minutes and focused mainly on his material from 1966-1978, particularly, many of his best-known hits from the early ‘70s such as “Heart of Gold,” “Old Man,” “A Man Needs a Maid,” “Harvest,” “Long May You Run” and the seldom played “Southern Man.”
Rolling Stone states that Young only deviated from that era a few times when he played two songs from 1992’s Harvest Moon and the 1989 single “Someday,” along with a couple of covers of songs by Phil Ochs and Bert Jansch.
Young played his second show at Carnegie Hall yesterday (January 7), with remaining dates set for January 9 and 10, after which he will head to Canada for a series of concerts that are scheduled from January 12 – 19.
