FREE CONCERT*: Neil Young & Crazy Horse @ Global Festival - Great Lawn, Central Park, September 29, 2012
A new concert date has been added for Neil Young & Crazy Horse this fall.
Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, Black Keys, Band of Horses and K'naan will perform at the Great Lawn in New York's Central Park on September 29th as part of the Global Festival, a concert designed to bring awareness and funds to the cause of ending global poverty.
"Global Poverty Project organizers are hopeful about their tuneful approach to activism. "Since 1981, the proportion of people living in extreme poverty has been halved to 25 percent. While progress has been remarkable, there's still a long way to go," he says. "Music and movements go hand-in-hand: from ending the slave trade in the 1800s through the freedom chant against apartheid in South Africa, music has been a key part of social change, and that's still so true today. It gives us an outlet to express that which we care about in the most meaningful and passionate of ways, which is the whole point of the Global Festival: it's equitable, so anyone can get involved in uniting so many people and non-profits around one cause. It's become a lot bigger than any of us have ever dreamed."
