Neil Young’s Concert Film

Neil Young's Concert Film

In Nashville this week, the songwriting genius known as Neil Young performed a two-night stand at Ryman Auditorium. This was not only a triumphant return to the stage following brain surgery this past Spring, but the concerts were captured on film for a future release. And this isn’t just some standard-issue concert DVD, we’re talking about a full-on concert film to be released in theaters by Paramount Classics.

The film is being directed by Jonathan Demme, who made a name for himself years ahead of Silence of the Lambs with the revolutionary Talking Heads concert film, Stop Making Sense. I was actually thisclose to attending the two-night stand, but ultimately passed due to too many commitments at home. Instead, though, in attendance from Austin were my boss, SXSW co-founder (and longtime Demme friend) Louis Black, and Be Here To Love Me director Margaret Brown.

I can’t wait to hear their reports when they get back. But until then, you and I can read this article from Billboard.
