Zoomers of a certain vintage will welcome this.
Canadian music legend Neil Young is releasing “Young Shakespeare” next month, containing some of his earliest material, complete with the earliest live footage of Neil performing in concert.
The show was shot at The Shakespeare Theatre, in Stratford, Connecticut two months after the release of his acclaimed album “After The Gold Rush.”
The concert was shot for German TV. The footage has never been made commercially available.
The 75-year old Toronto born singer-songwriter says “Young Shakespeare” is, a more calm performance, without the celebratory atmosphere of Toronto’s Massey Hall, captured live on 16mm.
“Young Shakespeare” will be available March 26th.
