Neil Young Confronts Heckler In Dallas

Neil Young played a two-set solo acoustic show in Dallas last night filled with songs from throughout his career and a number of choice covers. Towards the middle of the second set Young was telling the story behind his Martin D-28 guitar when an audience member cut him off by repeatedly yelling “Play it!” As we’ve learned over the years, no one tells Neil what to do.

Following the scream of “Play it!,” Young responded “I don’t think I’m going to play it” and went on to say, “I’m trying to remember the last time I did what somebody told me to do.” Neil continued to get into it with the fans, exclaiming “what is this, a job?” and “How about you talk, and I’ll listen?” He then offered a biting take on “Harvest Moon” after which he noted, “Funny — that song is not supposed to be angry, You get what you demand.”

Take a listen to how it went down:
