Are you ready for this year’s annual Bridge School Benefit? The Bridge School Benefit is an annual non-profit charity concert held in Mountain View, California every October at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. The concerts are all organized by musician Neil Young and his wife, Pegi Young. Proceeds benefit The Bridge School. The first concert was in October 1986, and, with the exception of 1987, the concert has been held every year since. As a practice, but not a rule, the performers use acoustic instruments. Young also personally performs every year.

This year, the concert will be held on October 20, 2012 at 5pm and October 21, 2012 at 2pm. Information about ticket sales, pricing, seating charts, parking, etc. can be found on the Live Nation site.

The current lineup includes the following:

  • Neil Young & Crazy Horse
  • 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
  • Gary Clark Jr.
  • Ray LaMontagne

*All acts are subject to change. Not necessarily in order of appearance.

Joe Cocker and Huey Lewis and the News will be touring the US this Summer with 24 dates starting July 13th in Valley Center, CA. These two great artists have never toured together before, so this is bound to be a treat. Each artist will be performing a full set with hopefully some other surprises and collaborations planned.
