New Amsterdam - Live at Heineken Music Hall is the second live album by Counting Crows, released by Geffen Records on June 19, 2006, in the United Kingdom and the following day in the United States. The live performance was recorded in the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam, The Netherlands between February 4–6, 2003.

Reception[edit]

Allmusic's Thom Jurek praised the release, stating that it "feels warts-and-all, like a special kind of bootleg," that ultimately gives an insight into vocalist and lyricist Adam Duritz' state of mind. Jurek states that the track listing, "as strange and beguiling as it is, is a flawed and fitting testament to the Counting Crows' continued trudge out there on the margins of rock & roll."[1]
