Review: Neil Young and Crazy Horse Erupted Into Bridgeport's Webster Bank Arena
Neil Young and Crazy Horse rolled into Bridgeport’s Webster Bank Arena (a.k.a. the Arena at Harbor Yard) like a freight train last night for the second to last date of a tour that began in early October, and as such they were in well-rehearsed, top form. Young’s voice sounded as good as you would hope for it to sound — delicate and shaky, emotive, yet hard-hitting when it needed to be. And his pitch was right on throughout. He’s 67, but he still sounds like Neil fucking Young, and we got chills when that voice pushed out “Cinnamon Girl” just as effectively as it did in 1969. Crazy Horse is Young’s most out-there, feedback-friendly, jammy, slop-rock band, and he utilized its psychedelic abilities to their maximum potential with plenty of extended stoner jams and stomp box freakouts.
