Delta Center
Salt Lake City, Utah, January 29, 2000

report by John Style Change Sheilds

I just got home from a CSNY concert in Salt Lake City. What's more, I took a train from Denver to get there. The good 'ol California Zephyr. The train trip was an adventure in itself. Maybe there will be time for that tale later. I dunno.

In the afternoon I went to the Mormon Tabernacle. If you've ever heard the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on the radio it came from here. Built in 1875, it has the best killer pipe organ you ever saw. They give concerts from noon till 2 on weekends but I got there too late. A couple of pretty LDS missionaries tried to convert me though. I'm not too sure on the polygamy thing. I'd be outnumbered.

Anyway, I went into the Delta Center and some kindly old man looked in my pack & stuff. Once inside the venue, I had to wait almost an hour (till 7pm) to be let into the seating area. At 7:10 pm they let me go to my seat. I was in the 7th row coming up from the floor to the right of the stage. My seat was all the way at the edge, on the railing. I was about 45 feet from Neil. What's more is the PA was right in front of me. No crowd at all between me & the stage. It allowed me to absorb killer sonic vibrations.

Now I know there has been much gnashing of teeth in regards to this tour. But I for one loved every second of the show. The new songs sound excellent live and the old stuff kicks ass.

Oh yeah, there was a false start on Cinnamon Girl. Neil thought it was too slow. "If it's a no-go, it's a no-go." -- Neil Young, 2000.

The second version rocked.

Now it's a good reason I'm not a critic. If I propose to have a good time I usually do. I had such a good time at CSNY SLC I had to change my underwear twice.

Just kidding. It was only once.

The setlist was the same as the first night in Detroit, minus song 28. So they played 30 songs. I had the best time.

The comments I overheard leaving the concert all centered on the Neilmeister. Things like "man that dude was on fire" and "man that dude was smoking" or "man that dude was smouldering" or "man that dude was jumping around a lot" or words to that effect, and other effects too.

I think a lot of casual listeners were given a lesson in Neil energy, currently selling for up to $201. That's money well spent in my humble opinion. SLC top tix were *only* $125.

I caught the 4:20 am California Zephyr back to the big D and here I am.

I don't know nothing.
