Neil Young performed solo at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles last night March 30, 2014.
Thanks to a couple of fans, we can see and hear some of the show.
Over at Thrasher’s Wheat, some fans who saw the show were enthusiastic. However some fans at the show went overboard.

Great show .. Sadly still haven’t seen Thrasher .. Basically the same setlist except Blowin in the Wind instead of Thrasher, no harvest moon or flying on the ground and Reason to Believe instead of Are you ready for the country …
There was a complete ass who yelled for Cinnamon Girl after ever single song .. Just insane .. What’s wrong with these people? Neil finally couldn’t take it anymore and just screamed “fuck you” back. Everyone erupted in applause.

Last night Neil Young performed at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles Times reviewed the show:
It wasn’t a big leap to wonder during Saturday’s opening night of Neil Young’s four-night run of solo acoustic concerts in Hollywood whether Jesus, if he returned to address a modern-day audience, would have to contend with a steady stream of shouts from the back for “Sermon on the Mount!” “Water into wine!” and “Free Bird!”
Young fielded a similar barrage of requests (“Cinnamon Girl!” “Down By the River!”) and comments (“You’re the man!”) from the sold-out crowd at the Dolby Theatre good-naturedly.
At one point he tacitly acknowledged the tone of almost spiritual pilgrimage in the air by shaking the water out of a harmonica onto folks sitting in the first few rows, a rock ’n’ roll priest anointing his flock. He even shifted into request mode himself after another outburst from fans, mock shouting “The Beatles!” “The Rolling Stoooooones!” “Free Bird!”
