NEIL YOUNG, FOO FIGHTERS TO PERFORM AT NYC’S FREE GLOBAL FESTIVAL

on the official Neil site:

By Tara Hall, SoundSpike, August 8, 2012
Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys and more will take to the stage late next month at New York City’s Global Festival, a free event aimed to bring awareness to extreme poverty.
The music extravaganza, which will also feature Band of Horses and K’Naan, takes place Sept. 29 on the Great Lawn of New York City’s Central Park.
The Global Poverty Project is hosting the inaugural Global Festival; the international organization works to end extreme poverty worldwide through education and advocacy.
Those interested in free tickets need to visit the event’s website to sign up as a Global Citizen and take action to qualify for the ticket lottery.
“With at least 1.3 billion people living in extreme poverty on Earth today, there has never been a better time to become a Global Citizen and do whatever you can to make a difference for your fellow man,” Neil Young said in a press release.
A small number of VIP packages are available now via the festival website, with all net proceeds going to the charity.

this last one has a bit FOO FIGHTERS content.  Someone complained about us missing the setlist for FF, but here it is.

Thanks for giving us access to some stuff of BSB, where we couldn’t be there. We wanne live, we wanna give. The celibirty stuff is,  the US is so,well. us… Chinese, kiss kising. Maybe if you write again a song, instead of maybe. Maybe there is no more other than challenged people, here you can’t deny them.  Maybe you then could move something.  As you did for Ohio, e.g.

 

That’s why we love the hard stuff, who is supposed to carry on forward some kind of spirit. Here are the, etc…

Bridge School Benefit Line-up

25th bridge school benefit

UPDATE: video trailer – The lineup for Neil Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit Concert has been announced. And it’s a mammoth bill in celebration of the concert’s silver anniversary, which takes place at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, Oct. 22-23.

Young will be joined by Arcade Fire, Eddie Vedder, Dave Matthews, Mumford and Sons, Beck and Los Invisibles featuring Carlos Santana for the weekend festivities.

Other artists listed on concert’s official site include jazz queen Diana Krall (Saturday), Tony Bennett (Sunday) and Foo Fighters (Sunday). Yes, it seems the stars are all turning out for the cause closest to Young’s heart.

Check out the clip promoting the 2011 Bridge School Benefit Concert below and get hyped on the weekend, which raises money for the special school Young and wife Pegi started back in 1986 to help their son Ben. Heavy hitters like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Crosby, Stills, Nash were on hand to kick off the inaugural concert, which has become a staple on the calendar for music lovers (with the exception of 1987 when the benefit was canceled).

Tickets go on sale Sept. 16 via Live Nation, with proceeds going towards assisting children with disabilities and communication needs.

I have to go through a lot to make sure people won\'t perceive it as just a Neil Young record, because everybody thinks they know what that is. The challenge is to remind them that they have no idea what the hell that is.
