Never trust a hippy

Neil Young. He’s a cunt. He hasn’t played these shores in 5 or 6 years, but he’s back next year for a few shows. Well. 3 shows. If you have a spare £65 you could go. Except now you need about £150 for an eBay ticket cos all the tickets have sold out. Either I have morals or I’ve missed the boat. Morals first. There’s no way I’m paying £65 to see Neil Young in 2008. This Neil Young maybe…

But this Neil Young……………….?

Nah. I don’t think so.

Did I miss the boat? A few early risers got it. Order the tickets. Have no intention of going. Pop them on eBay for £250 a pair. Maybe I should have done likewise. Made a tidy wee profit and paid for Christmas. Either way, Neil’s made a tidy wee profit too. How come it cost £25 to see him last time around, yet the very next show he plays in Scotland will cost you almost 3 times that? Never trust a hippy. Especially one with a big ranch and a healthy bank balance. Rant over. Enjoy the music..

Heavy on the hammond. Heaven on the ears.

  1. Valid assessment. Then again, try to see any of these old geezers these days and you’ll be expected to sell your soul, your first born… My girlfriend and I passed on the Stones and Neil Young a few years back, but we couldn’t pass up a chance to see B.B. King and Bobby Blue Bland. Even at 80 bucks a seat. I guess get in where you fit in, huh.

  2. I saw both Neil Young and the Rolling Stones in Hong Kong a few years back for a more reasonable price. But that was thanks to the Hong Kong government sponsoring a series of “feel good again” concerts after the SARS outbreak. Wait for an epidemic, and maybe you’ll get ’em cheap too.
