Neil performed and sounded like he did years ago,maybe a bit more passionate about his political veiws. I expected a show of mediocre quality. I couldn't have been more wrong. From the 2 opening bands, Everest, then Wilco,set the stage for a night to remember. Neil proved that he can rock better than ever,He's not done Rockin !

Neil Young | Doin' what he does - and it's rock solid

By Patrick MacDonald
Seattle Times rock critic

Neil Young was electric (and acoustic) Tuesday night at WaMu Theater, playing classics and cuts from his new album.

WaMu Theater became heaven on Earth for Neil Young fans Tuesday night as the grandmaster of rock, the godfather of grunge, the dean of California singer-songwriters put on a great, unforgettable, powerful show of classics, obscure gems and impressive cuts from his new album, "Chrome Dreams II," released earlier that day.

He raged on guitar, playing extended jams on several songs, especially the set closer, an electrifying "No Hidden Path," which must've been 20 minutes long. His distinctive high singing voice was sweeter than ever, with a soft, ringing tone at the end of phrases.

Young was loose and happy and comfortable with the adoring crowd, especially after anarchy broke out, three songs into the second of his two sets (the electric one), with fans spilling down in droves to the front of the stage, where they happily danced the night away.

He opened with "From Hank to Hendrix" and the reference to the local hero drew a cheer. "Here I am with this old guitar," he sang, "doin' what I do."

His first set of 11 songs was acoustic, with Young switching from guitar to harmonica to piano to organ and even banjo. He played some of the songs that established his career back in the '70s, including "A Man Needs a Maid," "Love Is a Rose" and "Heart of Gold."

The landmark lyric from "After the Gold Rush," "look at Mother Nature on the run," was updated from "in the 1970s" to "in the 21st century," which also got a big reaction from the crowd.
