Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and the Dave Matthews Band will perform alongside Neil Young at the 20th anniversary Bridge School Benefit, to be held Oct. 21-22 at Shoreline Amphitheatre outside San Francisco. The event benefits the Bridge School for children with severe speech and physical disabilities, which Young and his wife Pegi founded.
Students from the school can routinely be found taking in the concerts from the stage each year. Also on the upcoming bill are Brian Wilson, the Foo Fighters, Death Cab For Cutie and Devendra Banhart, according to an event spokesperson. Tickets go on sale Sunday (Sept. 17).
Last year’s Bridge School featured Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Lee Lewis, Good Charlotte and Los Lobos. Before this year’s show, Young will join Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Matthews at Farm Aid, to be held Sept. 30 in Camden, N.J.
