Neil Young Sets Sights on Aiding Atlantic City

Posted: Dec. 6th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

In a typical streak of independent flare, Neil Young passed on an opportunity to perform at Madison Square Garden in favor of an independent relief effort for Atlantic City alongside “Crazy Horse.” With a politically charged message calling for a change in public policy, they set to perform at the Borgata Hotel Casino with benefits going to the American Red Cross.

Neil Young says he was invited to perform at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 12 for a major celebrity concert to aid the victims of Hurricane Sandy, but instead, in his typical independent way, he's hosting a more intimate benefit of his own in Atlantic City.

Mr. Young, who has released two albums this year as well as his autobiography, "Waging Heavy Peace," will be the featured performer on Thursday at "A Special Evening with Neil Young and Crazy Horse" at the Borgata Hotel Casino. Proceeds from the concert will go to the American Red Cross to help storm victims.
