The lineup has been announced for the 2012 Bridge School Benefit, and this one will certainly have people talking.

Check out the list:

  • Neil Young & 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
  • Gary Clark Jr.

Yes, you read that right: Guns N’ Roses. Axl Rose’s band will lay it down in an all-acoustic setting, which alone is worth the price of admission. Not necessarily because it will be a quality highlight of the show, but due to the fact that it's a wildcard of unpredictability. 

The 26th Annual Bridge School Benefit Concert takes place Oct. 20 and 21, 2012 at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View. Tickets go on sale Sept.14. Proceeds benefit the Bridge School, the facility Neil and Pegi Young founded for children with severe physical disabilities.

Check Live Nation for information about ticket sales, pricing, seating charts, parking, etc.The official announcement is below:

The Bridge School is a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure that individuals with severe speech and physical impairments achieve full participation in their communities through the use of augmentative & alternative means of communication (AAC) and assistive technology (AT) applications and through the development, implementation and dissemination of innovative life-long educational strategies. The Bridge School is an internationally recognized leader in the education of children who use augmentative and alternative communication and has developed unique programs and trained highly skilled professionals in the use of state of the art assistive technology.

The first concert was held October 13, 1986 and, with the exception of 1987- the year the educational program was launched- it has become a highly anticipated Bay Area favorite.
