Guns N’ Roses and more to play 2012 Bridge School Benefit Concert


Guns N’ Roses, Jack White and more are set to play the 26th Annual Bridge School Benefit Concert this fall.

Neil Young organizes the annual acoustic-based event, which raises funds for the Bridge School, a facility that develops and uses advanced technologies to aid in the instruction of children with disabilities; it was founded in 1986 by Pegi Young and Jim Forderer, with help from Dr. Marilyn Buzolich. The first benefit concert, in 1986, raised the money necessary to start the school, which opened in ’87.

The 2012 event takes place on October 20 at 5pm and October 21 at 2pm at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.

The 2012 lineup was revealed Friday night, once online donations reached $10,000.

The lineup features:

• 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.


Tickets, priced from $35-$150, go on sale Friday, September 14 at 10 AM PDT (1 PM EDT) via Live Nation.

You can help support the Bridge School with your donation here.
