For the first time in its 25-year history, Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit Concert will be broadcast live. The event, taking place at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, can be viewed by anyone with an Internet connection (via the Bridge School’s Facebook and YouTube pages), according to Ultimate Classic Rock.
The entire show on Saturday, October 22, will be featured. Performers include Young (of course), Eddie Vedder, Carlos Santana (with Los Invisibles), Arcade Fire, Dave Matthews, Norah Jones, Mumford and Sons and assorted “special guests.” The broadcast begins at 7:30 p.m. Eastern/4:30 p.m. Pacific. The second day of the event (Sunday, October 23) will not be broadcast.
Neil and his wife Pegi Young began hosting the charity shows in 1986. Proceeds benefit the school, which helps children who are disabled and/or have communication difficulties.
