Neil Young brought his solo, “Twisted Road” tour to Seattle this week, performing Tuesday (July 20) at the Paramount Theatre. (Bert Jansch opened the concert.)

Young didn’t provide review tickets to the sold-out show, but I was able to arrange a photo pass for Seattle photographer Jim Bennett, who captured these images near the beginning of a concert that included such songs as “My, My, Hey, Hey (Out of the Blue)” and “Tell Me Why.” Note the eerie shot of Young’s organ at the bottom of the post.

Bennett made this comment about Young’s show: “Combination of acoustic and electric guitar, organ and piano, all solo. As you’d expect, a completely captivated audience in the palm of his hand the whole show. He was masterful.”

Here’s a link to Young’s MySpace page and official Web site, as well as a popular fan site.

    As much as I love Neil Young, I am actually much more impressed with the photographer. That last image is something particularly eerie and the others really capture the mood.
