Once I text the donation do I receive a url or something for the show? or does it have to be linked to a face book account? All about giving to the school but this is way to friggin complicated.

People are pissed over on facebook....this looks like a disaster. How they hell do we access this "webcast"??? Thrasher or somebody HELP!

To access the webcast.

1. click donate button at the following link.

Note: You not do need to have a facebook account. I do not have one.

2. fill out form with credit info.

3. fill out account, password and e-mail on next screen. e-mail is the important field.

4. within a minute, e-mail is sent with embedded link to webcast. click it and you have authorized access.

5. enjoy. stream is clear and appears to be in HD.

Whole process takes less then 5 minutes and is quite simple.

Worked perfectly for me. I don't even know how I could have screwed up signing up if I tried.

Literally went here:

Clicked 'pay' or whatever, entered my credit card info, signed into UStream, and the video started playing.

Will Neil and Crazy Horse play on the second night, too?

At 10/21/2012 01:41:00 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Neil and most bands play both days. if a band only plays 1 day it will always say in the ad. I liked G-n-R better with 5 guys, not 10. is that Izzy ? looks like him.

My recording of:

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood, CA

The night after this show we went to see the final night of new Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day concert movie. Two consecutive nights of the best classic rock available to living humans in the year 2012!

Ha, that's great! Eddie was there. Didn't see the streaming this year. But had to think about last year earlier this week. And since Eddie wasn't on the bill this came up. Good old Neil can do anything he wants to do. Two records a year, write a book, make some movies, LincVolt and a million more things. But there's one thing he can't do. He can't go to the Bridge kids and tell them about the benefit line-up: "Hey kids, Eddie is not comming this year". No way. The kids love Eddie.

Pls post a vid of RITFW if available, Im always interested to see who sticks around for the end..

At 10/21/2012 02:41:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'm pretty sure that the only reason Eddie played was because Axl was late getting to the stage. There was a longer wait then usual then Eddie came out and said that playing there was the last thing he'd thought he'd be doing.

This link should get you to the available videos from yesterday's show. You'll need a user name and password to access these, and you get that when you donate $5 to Bridge School. Might need some patience getting the video stream right for your system.

I watched much of the show yesterday via live feed and it was pretty awesome. Kind of dozy by the time Neil and Crazy Horse came on (coast time lag) and I've been watching and rewatching that today.

Lucinda did her version of Jimi's song Angel to close her set out and it was superb. Eddie doing Last Kiss was very cool. Jack White's set rocking and exciting. Sarah McLachlan looks and sounds beautiful and happy. Gary Clark Jr is amazing.

Have fun all you lucky folks going today. And my advice to you is get there early...I couldn't believe how many empty seats there were when Neil first came on, when Lucinda came on etc.

In such a matter that would have lifted

Just finished watching Neil & Crazy Horse's amazing performance. Like A Hurricane was sublime! I think it may be the first time the band has played it acoustically like that. Wow!

Thank you to everyone who made it possible for us to watch this from far away!
