    John Mayer joined Dave Matthews Band,Nas and Phil Vassar on Thursday night in a concert event aimed at healing and lifting the spirits of the Virginia Tech community while also celebrating their resiliency and strength in bouncing back from the April 16 tragedy,which claimed the lives of 33 members of the Virginia Tech faculty, staff and student body. A crowd of 50,000 estimated to have attended the concert.

    Thursday night's concert was an event to remember as each performance included fan favorites as well as upbeat and/or inspiring songs by John Mayer,Dave Matthews,Nas and Phil Vassar. There were even some exciting cross collaborations which occurred on stage that night as Dave Matthews horn player Leroi Moor joined John Mayer on his band's performance of the bluesy gospel-esque Mayer tune"Gravity" with a smooth and sultry solo.

    John and Dave were also spotted at the stadium hours before the concert during sound check and John Mayer at other places around campus ,most notably at the Virginia Tech Inn where he lodged during his stay there.

    John Mayer, Metallica, Tom Waits, and Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder are among the artists that will join Neil Young for his 21st annual Bridge School Benefit concerts on Oct. 27-28. Also on this year's bill are Tegan and Sara, Regina Spektor and Jerry Lee Lewis.(more...)

    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 mentally and physically handicapped children.

    The first concert was in October 1986, and, with the exception of 1987, the concert has been held every year since. It is known for having a relatively high-profile lineup and strong performances, probably due to Neil Young's extensive connections within the music industry. As a practice, but not a rule, the performers use acoustic instruments. Young also personally performs every year(more).
