H.o.r.d.e. Mentality

March 02, 1997|Steve Hochman

Fans of the H.O.R.D.E tour's free-flowing, hippie-rock vibe have been freaking out over word that this summer's headliner, Neil Young, would be prohibiting concert-goers from taping the shows. Fans of the band Moe, who, in the tradition of the Deadheads, consider taping their right, even flooded the group's Internet site with messages demanding that the band turn down an expected offer to appear on H.O.R.D.E.

But Young's manager, Elliot Roberts, says the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has no objection to allowing tapers on the tour.

"We'll go along with whatever is the tour's policy," says Roberts, adding that the issue had never even been discussed.

And what is the policy?

"That hasn't been determined yet," says H.O.R.D.E. honcho David Frey of the taping question. "And our taping section isn't really that big anyway. We have maybe 10 a show, which is not close to Phish concerts or with the Dead, where it's more like 150."
