Crosby, Stills & Nash, Jackson Browne, More to Perform at Japan Relief Benefit Concert Aug. 7 in California
Crosby, Stills & Nash will headline a benefit concert to support relief efforts in Japan and worldwide alternative-energy groups on Aug. 7 at the Shoreline Ampitheatre in Mountain View, Calif.
In addition to CSN, acts on the bill include Jackson Browne, the Doobie Brothers, Bonnie Raitt, Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello and others. The proceeds will be distributed through Musician's United for Safe Energy (MUSE) to disaster relief efforts in Japan and non-nuclear energy organizations around the world.
"The MUSE concert will not only be a great show, it will hopefully entice the public to become better informed of the tremendous dangers of nuclear power," says CSN's Graham Nash in a press release. "We have to keep real and true information flowing so that people can act on it."
"The disaster in Fukushima is not only a disaster for Japan. It is a global disaster. We come together now across cultural boundaries, political and generational boundaries, to call for changes in the way we use energy, and in the ways we conduct the search for solutions to the problems facing humanity," adds Jackson Browne. "We join with the people of Japan, and people everywhere who believe in a non-nuclear future."
Later in the summer, Crosby, Stills & Nash will also be performing at New York's Beacon Theatre on Aug. 30 and 31 to benefit the Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition.
