Eric B. & Rakim to reunite for Paid In Full 30th anniversary concert at The Apollo

in Music/News by


Last fall, legendary hip-hop duo Eric B. & Rakim teased a reunion tour. It seems they’ve since whittled down those plans to one show, but it’s a big one. Today, they announced a “one night only” show at the historic Apollo Theatre in Harlem, New York.

The performance will take place on July 7th, exactly 30 years since the release of their seminal debut album, Paid In Full. Although Rakim toured last year performing the album solo, he hasn’t been joined on stage by Eric B. in more than 20 years. Beyond Keep Reading

Neil Young ends involvement in Bridge School Benefit Concert

in Music/News by


The Bridge School Benefit, the annual charity concert organized by Neil Young and Pegi Young, will not take place in 2017. It’s future beyond that is unclear, as Neil Young will “longer be hosting” the event.

In a statement, the legendary songwriter cited “personal reasons” for his departure, but did not offer further explanation. It’s worth noting that he and Pegi ended their 36-year marriage in 2014, though they did collaborate on two further installments of the concert. Earlier this year, Young was forced to cancel an appearance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony due to an undisclosed health issue.

Young said he would “continue in fund raising efforts” for the Bridge School. He also thanked his former wife for “coming up with the idea and pursuing it with such great dedication, working for the kids like our child Ben, young children with disabilities who needed more than our education system offered.”

In her own statement, Pegi Young suggested the Bridge School will now look for alternative avenues to achieve its endowment goals.

The Bridge School Benefit Concert was begun in 1986 to raise money for the Bridge School, a non-profit organization which assists children with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs. Traditionally featuring acoustic sets, the concert has welcomed everyone from Metallica, to Roger Waters, to Arcade Fire over the course of its 30-year history.

Read both Neil Young and Pegi Young’s statements below.

Neil Young:

“After thirty years of hosting the Bridge School Concerts, I would like to say thanks to everyone involved. Of course, I love the students most of all because the light in their eyes tells me we have been doing the right thing for the last thirty years. We have earned millions of dollars and the school is stable financially, able to go forward although we still need an endowment and would welcome one.

Thanks to Pegi Young for coming up with the idea and pursuing it with such great dedication, working for the kids like our child Ben, young children with disabilities who needed more than our education system offered. Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation go to the artists who have been so generous with their time and great performances. Certainly, my love and appreciation Keep Reading
