A Field of Dreams... build it and they will come.

KTIV News 4 Sioux City IA: News, Weather and Sports

From Farmer will host two music icons for benefit concert in northeas - KTIV News 4 Sioux City IA: News, Weather and Sports:

Just over a month from now, music legends Willie Nelson and Neil Young will come to northeast Nebraska to help aid the fight against the Keystone XL Oil Pipeline Project.

Neligh farmer Art Tanderup has not been shy when it comes to statements against the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

Last year he created the "#No KXL" crop art on his 160 acre farm, and now his farmstead will host music legends Neil Young and Willie Nelson for a music festival next month for the group Bold Nebraska.

Art Tanderup, Neligh farmer said, “Needless to say it is very exciting. I never dreamed anything like this would ever happen. Every morning when I get up I pinch myself and say is this for real or did I just have a dream?”

News of the once in a lifetime concert has spread quickly through the town of Neligh. Within minutes both hotels in town are sold out that weekend, and have stopped taking calls. Neligh's Economic Development Director says the sold out rooms give you an idea of the impact this concert is already having in town.

Greg Ptacek, Neligh Economic Development Director said, “We are trying to capitalize on maybe having some organizations do fundraiser's to catch some breakfast crowd before they get out to the farm ground.”

Ptacek says he is working on getting extra camping spaces secure for the concert as well as getting supplies need out to Tanderup's farm. Proceeds from the concert will go to Bold Nebraska and the fight against the Keystone XL Oil Pipeline. Bold Nebraska Executive Director hopes the impact makes its way to Washington DC.

Jane Kleeb, Bold Nebraska said “I really do hope that the concert, Harvest the Hope, first and foremost sends a message to President Obama that we are still fighting this pipeline very strongly in Nebraska.”

Harvest the Hope will be held Saturday September 27 from 1-5pm. To learn more about concert, visit the website

... Isn't Howard Stern the one who interviews young girls while riding dildos? Maybe Neil will talk about how he nailed a little Indian Girl in a town in north Ontario...

"I don't think I got laid for f---in' years after I got into rock and roll. I think I was in Fort William when I got laid. Me and a nice little Indian and a deejay. The first time was not really that great. at least I didn't get any diseases. So it was good." - Neil Young

Well, The Howard Stern Show is the finical circus show. How fitting!
