Global Festival NYC Features Neil Young, The Black Keys & Foo Fighters
Not a bad way to wake up this morning. Even if “Free” means “Do Charity Work”
Neil Young, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys and Band of Horses among others are set to perform New York City’s Central Park on the “great lawn” as part of what they are dubbing the Global Festival, on September 29th , benefit concert to help raise money to try and end world poverty.
Rolling Stone is reporting that tickets are at a discounted price of FREE and will given out in a lottery to individuals who perform “charitable acts”. That’s right folks, there’s volunteer work involved.
This event is put on by the same people who bring us Coachella, and that’s Goldenvoice/AEG. You can commit to the Global Poverty Project here, and that’s where this writer will assume you can find out these “charitable acts” that must be done in order to see the likes of Neil Young , The Black Keys and Adult Contemporary Rockers Foo Fighters and others in Central Park on a cool Autumn evening in New York City.
Just be on the look out for police if you think it’s okay to smoke cigarettes outside. Mayor Bloomberg, along with 32oz soda, has deemed it “illegal” to smoke a cigarette in Central Park. Last time I checked, that park was OUTSIDE. But don’t get me started, just enjoy the show.
