Neil Young has been confirmed as one of the performers during a fundraiser for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music on October 30 in Los Angeles. Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers started the organization, whose purpose is to offer music lessons to children and adults.
Flea commented on the event in a statement, saying: "Going into our 13th year of the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, flourishing with 700 students as a non-profit community music school, I could not be more grateful for all the people who have helped us out along the way." Flea continues to say that he's very excited to have Young on the bill: "Having one of my favorite musicians Neil Young perform to help out the school is the greatest blessing! This is gonna be the funnest fundraiser ever! All of us working together, making L.A. a better city, and educating the kids! Yay!"
Flea will also be performing alongside his bandmates in Red Hot Chili Peppers. Tickets to the event cost $2,000.
