We are excited for this! No Doubt and their memorable reggae-tinged acoustic performance of “Magic’s In The Makeup”, performed back in 2009, will be included on The Bridge School Benefits 25 Anniversary Boxset! The audio from the set will be included on disc 1, and the boxset includes three DVDs and two CDs of performances and backstage footage from throughout the concertâ€™s history. The boxset hits stores and online on October 24, and you can pre-order it right now on warnerreprise.com. All proceeds from the boxset will go directly to The Bridge School, which benefits children with severe physical handicaps.
When it is released, hopefully we can get our hands on the audio to share with everyone! This is the performance, we are talking about!
Rolling Stone — Few yearly music festivals manage to assemble as consistently a jaw-dropping and unique line-up as the Bridge School Benefit. At the 1999 show alone they booked Neil Young, Pearl Jam, the Who, Green Day, Tom Waits, Brian Wilson, Lucinda Williams, the Smashing Pumpkins, Sheryl Crow and Emmylou Harris. The show â€“ organized by Young and his wife Pegi â€“ raises money for the Bridge School, which educates children with severe physical physical handicaps and complex communication needs. To keep costs down and make the event more special, all artists are required to perform acoustic sets. That’s no big deal for an artist like Dave Matthews or Paul McCartney, but it has led to some once-in-a-lifetime sets sets by Metallica, Trent Reznor and Thom Yorke.
The sets have been widely bootlegged for years, but to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the festival a three-DVD, two-CD set drawn from the festival’s complete history is coming out on October 24th. That’s just days after this year’s festival, which features Arcade Fire, Eddie Vedder, Beck, Dave Matthews, Carlos Santana, Foo Fighters, Mumford & Sons, Tony Bennett, Diana Krall, Jenny Lewis and, as always, Neil Young.
