Neil Young Invites Metallica to Play At His Annual Star-Studded Benefit
Celebrating 30 years of charity.
Neil Young’s annual Bridge School benefit concerts have always featured all-star musical talents. This year, the concert includes an epic all-star line up highlighted by Metallica, Roger Waters, Dave Matthews, Willie Nelson, My Morning Jacket, Nils Lofgren, and Norah Jones to celebrate its 30th year anniversary.
The Bridge School is a non-profit institution that provides education for children with severe speech difficulties and physical impairments. Young has been a long avid supporter of the school co-founded by his ex-wife Pegi Young, and has been inviting his musician friends along to raise funds at the annual charity event for three decades.
Pegi Young helped build the school for kids like her son with Neil Young, Ben, who suffers from cerebral palsy, resulting to severe speech and physical impairment.
The 30th Annual Bridge School Benefit concert is scheduled to be held on October 22nd and 23rd at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California.
