Neil Young kicks off Carnegie Hall residency with 'greatest hits' set
Neil Young played the first of four solo shows at New York's Carnegie Hall last night [January 6].
The show was divided into two sets, with Young playing a 'greatest hits' set - stretching back to his Buffalo Springfield days - as well as covers of Phil Ochs' "Changes" and Bert Jansch's "Needle Of Death".
Young will also play Carnegie Hall on January 7, 9 and 10.
Young has already confirmed further live dates for 2014. Beyond the remaining Carnegie Hall engagements, he will play five more solo shows including four benefit shows in his native Canada under the banner 'Honor The Treatise', which will aid the native Canadians in their battle against oil companies and the government to preserve their land.
In July, Young reconvenes with Crazy Horse for 10 European dates, including London's Hyde Park on July 12.
