Pearl Jam, Norah Jones and Band of Horses are returning to Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View for the the 28th Annual Bridge School Benefit Concerts. The lineup for the shows, which take place Oct. 25 and 26, was announced last week by promoter Live Nation. Neil Young will once again play host, headliner and opening act. And even though he filed for divorce from Pegi Young, his wife of 36 years, just over a month ago, she’s on the bill too. The lineup also includes several acts performing at the benefit for the first time: Florence and the Machine, Tom Jones and Soundgarden. Tickets went on sale Friday, Sept. 19. For more information, visit livenation.com. As always, the proceeds benefit the Bridge School.
Organized by musician Neil Young and his wife, Pegi, the Bridge School Benefit Concert is an annual, all acoustic, non-profit charity event held every October at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. All proceeds directly benefit the operations of The Bridge School.
The Bridge School is a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure that individuals with severe speech and physical impairments achieve full participation in their communities through the use of augmentative & alternative means of communication (AAC) and assistive technology (AT) applications and through the development, implementation and dissemination of innovative life-long educational strategies. The Bridge School is an internationally recognized leader in the education of children who use augmentative and alternative communication and has developed unique programs and trained highly skilled professionals in the use of state of the art assistive technology.
The first concert was held October 13, 1986 and, with the exception of 1987- the year the educational program was launched- it has become a highly anticipated Bay Area favorite.
