Young blasts fans for shoddy claps

Neil Young told off the audience during a performance in New York

Neil Young has blasted an audience for clapping out of time and talking to each other between songs at one of his shows.

The Harvest singer was playing one of four dates at New York's Carnegie Hall when he got annoyed by the crowd's reaction to his performance.

According to the Daily Mirror, as fans tried to clap along to his song Ohio but mistimed it, he shouted out: "Wrong! It's something that you probably don't know, but there's a hell of a distance between you and me."

Later, as he was tuning a harmonica between songs, he turned to fans chatting on a balcony and said: " No, you paid real good money to get in here, so you should be able to listen to each other."

Neil Young and Crazy Horse will perform in Hyde Park for Barclaycard British Summertime on July 12, where they will be supported by The National, Tom Odell, Caitlin Rose, Phosphorescent and Flyte.

They recently cancelled a four-city North American tour after guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro injured his hand.
