R.E.M. have become the third act to sign on to perform at the Bridge School Concert in Mountain View, California. Event co-founder Neil Young and Pearl Jam are the other confirmed acts for the fifteenth annual show, which is scheduled for late October.
This will be R.E.M.'s second Bridge School appearance, as they played the 1998 concert.
The event was initiated in 1986 by Young and his wife Pegi, with all of the proceeds from the concert going to the Bridge School, a non-profit organization that helps individuals with severe speech and physical impairments.
