The first ever Bridge School Benefit was held on Oct. 13, 1986 and has since featured legendary acts like Elton John, Pearl Jam, Bonnie Raitt and more. This year not only serves as the 30th anniversary, but also marks the return of the majority of the artists on the bill.
Many of the artists appearing this year have been seen at the benefit in years past, including My Morning Jacket, Willie Nelson and Metallica, who have all appeared three times, Norah Jones, who has appeared five, and Dave Matthews, who has been seen at the show seven times. Nils Lofgren, who appeared at the first ever benefit in 1986, as well as four others, is also slated to perform at this year's event.
