Neil Young and Jonathan Demme to Team Up for Third Concert Film
Neil Young is currently filming two concerts in Toronto for the third in a series of concert films with director Jonathan Demme. The shows are the final stop on Young's solo tour in support of his 2010 album 'Le Noise.'
In typical fashion for him, Young has thrown a creative curve into the concept of a solo tour this time around. Instead of running through his catalog of hits with an acoustic guitar, Neil performed a big chunk of the new album alongside 'Old Man' and 'Helpless,' and played a distorted electric guitar on many of the songs.
We were lucky enough to review Neil's recent Detroit concert on this same tour. If Demme can capture the flat-out beauty of Young at the piano for the tender ballad 'I Believe in You,' or the restlessness of the new classic set-closing anthem 'Walk With Me,' we'll be wearing out the repeat button just like we did on the first film they made together, 2006's 'Heart of Gold.'
Neil also has an archived live album from his mid-'80s tours with the International Harvesters coming out in June, and will be rejoining the legendary Buffalo Springfield for a series of concert dates this spring.
Now all we need is for someone to tell us how to get our hands on the second movie the pair did together, 2009's 'Trunk Show,' which received rave reviews after a barnstorming tour of movie theaters across the country but has yet to be released or announced for DVD.
