Neil Young: stop clapping off-beat at concerts

Neil Young: stop clapping off-beat at concerts

Veteran rocker Neil Young stunned fans into silence at a concert in New York on Monday when he scolded the audience for clapping along to his classic hit “Ohio.”

The legendary singer kicked off a four-night residency at the fabled Carnegie Hall venue with an acoustic solo show, but he grew
annoyed as he performed the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young tune as the enthusiastic crowd failed to stick to the beat of the song.

According to a reviewer for the New York Times, Young cut off the track and shouted, “Wrong!” at the public, before blaming the delay on the gap between the stage and the seating, adding, “It’s something that you probably don’t know, but there’s a hell of a distance between you and me.”

An awkward silence fell over the crowd as Young started the tune again, but it wasn’t the only time he lost his temper during the show – he later chastised a group of people sitting on a balcony for chatting in between songs.

He reportedly told the talkative fans, “No, you paid real good money to get in here, so you should be able to listen to each other.”

Young returned to Carnegie Hall on Tuesday for his second show at the venue, but there was no sign of his grumpy mood as he performed hits like “Are You Ready For The Country,” “A Man Needs A Maid” and “On the Way Home.”

He also paid tribute to late folk singer Phil Ochs during a cover of his track “Changes.”
