No Doubt, Chris Martin To Play Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit

The lineup has been unveiled for the 2009 Bridge School Benefit concert, to be held Oct. 24-25 at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif. School co-founder Neil Young anchors a bill that also features No Doubt, Jimmy Buffett, Coldplay's Chris Martin, Sheryl Crow and Monsters of Folk, among others.

Day one boasts performances from those artists, plus Fleet Foxes, Wolfmother and Gavin Rossdale. Buffett performs only on day one, while comedian Adam Sandler performs only on day two.

Tickets for the event go on sale Sept. 20 through LiveNation.com and charge-by-phone at (877) 598-6659. Advance tickets for reserved seating cost $75 and $150, while general admission costs $39.50 (plus service fees). There is a four-ticket purchase limit for reserved seating, and an eight-ticket limit for lawn seats.

Young, who hosts the annual, mostly-acoustic event, has played every year since launching the benefit in 1986. Proceeds from the shows support the Bridge School's work with children with severe physical and speech impediments.
