I saw Neil Young solo, with Bert J as opener, last summer in Reno NV USA. I've seen him several times before and I can attest that he does go through serious transformations in presenting his music. To me the varied style of his concerts is a big part of the attraction. Buffalo Springfield, CSNY, techno Neil, country Neil, rockin' Neil (w/ Crazy Horse), etc. are all engaging. I will confess that this last solo show was the least inspiring time (for me) that I saw him. Perhaps the most interesting to me was the tour he did in 2009 with Ben Keith (RIP) and a great band. Highlight from that superlative show was the "A Day in the Life" encore - chilling.
