The cast includes Neil Young and 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 and Gary Clark Jr.

The concerts will take place Oct. 20-21 at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View.

Tickets, priced from $35-$150, go on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 14 through www.livenation.com, by calling (800) 745-3000 and at the Shoreline Amphitheatre box office.

The shows benefit Hillsborough's Bridge School, an organization dedicated to the communicative and educational development of children with severe speech and physical impairments.

Organized by musician Neil Young and his wife, Pegi, the Bridge School Benefit Concert is an annual, all acoustic, non-profit charity event held every October at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. All proceeds directly benefit the operations of The Bridge School.

I hope it is all acoustic and that some of it shows up in YouTube as I'm on the wrong US coast. I want to hear at least some of this show, including some of the other artists as well!

It should be all acoustic and I am quite certain it will end up piecemeal on youtube like other concerts these days.

I'm really looking forward to this, won't be able to watch it live though.

If Axl's rehearsed and they play Catcher, that's more than enough for me.

If my oldest daughter gets up as early as she usually does, then I can sit and watch the concert while she watches morning cartoons Smile. For once I am looking forward to an early Sunday morning Smile GN'R is hopefully going on at 6 AM local time.
