Neil Young down by boardwalk for benefit show
NEW YORK (AP) - Neil Young said on Sunday that he couldn't see performing in the area devastated by Superstorm Sandy without doing something to help people who were affected by it.
Young and his longtime backup band, Crazy Horse, will hold a benefit concert for the American Red Cross' storm relief effort on Thursday at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City. The New Jersey coastline areas were hit hard by the storm in late October.
People in the New York area who suffered damage in the storm have been supporting him for 40 years, Young said.
"I couldn't see coming back here and just playing and have it be business as usual," he said. Young is touring in the area, with concerts scheduled for Monday in Brooklyn and Tuesday in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
