Back in Jan I was privileged to see Alabama Shakes’ debut Australia show at the Metro in Sydney. An amazing band with incredible energy, it was like Janis Joplin was in the room when Brittany sang. We were jammed in right at the front of the energetic, dance-off crowd, what a killer show!
I was spoilt this weekend with tickets to Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney. The crowd was putty in Nick’s hands as he strutted the stage, completely in control. A whole bunch of new tunes then familiar fav’s, I’ve been waiting years to hear him perform Into My Arms.
That was Sat, Sun night it was all about Neil Young. A poetic, political and brilliant musician I’ve grown up listening to. Thanks to my folks! He played a sold out show with incredible fury and sound, my hearing didn’t come back properly until Mon night! It wasn’t a night of acoustic classics so I had no chance of hearing my fav Neil song ever, Harvest Moon as electric guitars were the flavour of the night. His talent and range was astonishing, the man went from the amazing deep depths of Hey Hey My My; to entertaining 13,000 fans with an acoustic guitar and a harmonica knocking out Heart of Gold. Rock & Roll will never Die. Neil Young you can do no wrong!
