Neil Young, St. Vincent, Ryan Adams and more to play benefit gig in California
Young’s annual benefit welcomes an all-star cast this year.
Every year, Neil Young puts on a charity benefit gig at the Bridge School in California. For this year’s event, the likes of St. Vincent, Ryan Adams and Spoon are set to perform for the school, which supports those with severe physical impairments.
This year’s gig takes place across 24th and 25th October at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. Other artists performing include Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow, Gary Clark Jr., and The E Street Band’s Nils Lofgren.
The event will be the 29th annual Bridge School benefit, and it’s been running since 1986.
St. Vincent last week signalled the end of her tour for her self-titled 2014 record, one of the last shows being a triumphant headline performance at this year’s Green Man festival in Wales.
