Neil Young, Guns N’ Roses Lead 2012 Bridge School Benefit Concert Lineup
Neil Young continues to draw the best in music for his annual Bridge School Benefit. Now in its 26th year, the benefit will feature Young and his band Crazy Horse headlining both nights, with primary support from Guns N’ Roses and Jack White.
The lineup was revealed late Friday night (Sept. 7), with Young, White, and GNR also being joined by the Flaming Lips, Sarah McLachlan, Foster the People, Lucinda Williams, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, k.d. lang and Siss Boom Bang, and Gary Clark Jr. on the bill.
The organization posted a video featuring some of the students at the Bridge School using their language technology to reveal the participants in the year’s event. The non-profit organization’s goal is to ensure that youths with severe speech and physical impairments achieve full participation in their communities through the use of augmentative and alternate means of communication and assistive technology applications.
The lineup was revealed once donations reached $10.000. Additional donations can be made for the Bridge School here. This year’s event takes place Oct. 20 and 21 in Hillsborough, Calif. Ticketing details will be announced soon.
