Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young are among the acts set to take the stage at Neil Young's 2013 Bridge School Benefit. The 27th annual charity event goes down October 26-27 at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.
The full lineup of the all-acoustic show includes Queens of the Stone Age, My Morning Jacket, the Killers (Saturday only), Elvis Costello, Diana Krall, fun., Heart and Jenny Lewis.
"Neil came up with the acoustic format idea," Pegi, Neil's wife, told Rolling Stone. "It was genius. Nobody was doing that at the time. This is before MTV Unplugged or any of that. It keeps costs down, and it took artists outside their comfort zone. Looking back, that first concert was an exercise in simplicity compared to what it is these days."
Tickets go on sale September 13. Proceeds go to the Bridge School, founded by Young and his wife in 1986, which is a non-profit organization that serves children with severe physical and speech impediments.
