The Bridge School Benefit is an annual non-profit charity concert held in Mountain View, California every October at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. The concerts are all organized by musician Neil Young and his wife, Pegi.
Proceeds benefit the Bridge School, which assists children with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs. One of the thrusts of the program is the use of advanced augmentative and alternative communication systems and assistive technology.
The second edition of the Bridge Benefit Concert was held at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California on December 4, 1988. It was Tracy Chapman’s first appearance at the Bridge Benefit concert. Other performers were Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Nils Lofgren, Billy Idol, Bob Dylan, G. E. Smith, Jerry Garcia & Bob Weir and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
