The Bridge School Benefit, which raises money for children with severe physical impairments, has been held almost every year since 1986.

Previous shows have featured stripped-down sets by David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, the Who, Pearl Jam, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan and too many others to mention.
