Watch Neil Young’s recent Carnegie Hall concert in crowd-sourced video with bootleg audio

From Consequence of Sound:

Using video captured by four different fans and audio recorded with mics set up in the mezzanine level, Tony Adams pieced together footage of Young’s January 7th performance into a 2-hour concert film. The setlist stretched 30 songs and included Young solo classics such as “Heart of Gold” and “Harvest Moon”, Buffalo Springfield songs, and covers of Phil Ochs and Bert Jansch, which could end up finding their way onto his upcoming album.

So, this is an ethically debatable post. We’re watching video shot by four different attendees at the Carnegie Hall show from a few weeks ago, all synced to a single bootleg recording. The sound is a little echoey, but pretty good all the same. Who would have imagined that Neil Young’s voice would wear so well? He’s 68, but that voice seems pretty much unchanged, and his low key stage presence seems more appropriate than ever.

He ends, fittingly, with “Long May You Run”.

I’m just embedding the video from YouTube, so if it’s pulled down for copyright violations, it will just cease working. Enjoy while you can. (It’s already been up for a few days and has been pretty widely covered, so it might just stay here.)
