Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit Concert celebrated its quarter-century mark last year, but the annual San Francisco Bay Area charity event doesn’t look to be slowing down in year 26. Guns N’ Roses, Jack White, and the Flaming Lips are among the acts on this year’s bill. Joining them will be Neil Young himself (with Crazy Horse), Sarah McLachlan, Foster the People, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang, and Gary Clark Jr.

The 26th annual Bridge School Benefit Concert is set for October 20-21 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, once again raising money for the Bridge School, which educates children with severe speech and physical impairments. According to Live Nation’s website, tickets go on sale on Friday, September 14, at 10 a.m. PDT, with prices (including fees) ranging from $47.35 to $171.

Young recently made headlines when NBC briefly named him both the first man on the moon and, well, deceased. Very much alive, thank goodness, ol’ Neil has been debuting new material on tour with the Horse, in support of June’s folk-tangled Americana. Check Young’s website for his full Crazy Horse tour dates, which should keep them busy into December. And watch the Bridge School Benefit lineup video announcement below.
