Bridge School Benefit 2012: Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Guns N’ Roses, Jack White, Flaming Lips, Foster The People
The lineup for this year’s Bridge School Benefit, which will be held once again at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif. on October 20th and 21st, has been revealed and features an eclectic mix of megastars. Joining organizer Neil Young and Crazy Horse on the bill will be Jack White, Guns N’ Roses, The Flaming Lips, Sarah McLachlan, Foster The People, Lucinda Williams, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang and Gary Clark Jr.
Tradition holds that most of these acts will perform acoustic sets which is particularly intriguing for the usual heaviness of Guns N’ Roses. All proceeds from this benefit, and each of the Bridge School Benefits held since 1986, will go towards operations of The Bridge School. The Bridge School “is an internationally recognized leader in the education of children who use augmentative and alternative communication and has developed unique programs and trained highly skilled professionals in the use of state of the art assistive technology.” Neil and his wife Pegi continue to organize these concerts which have featured the likes of Metallica, Tom Petty, Pearl Jam, Phish and R.E.M. over the years.
Tickets will go on sale September 14th and run from $35 to $110.
