NEW YORK (AP) — Neil Young says 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 backing band, Crazy Horse, will be in Atlantic City for a benefit concert Thursday. He said he hopes to raise several hundred thousand dollars for the American Red Cross' storm relief effort with the show at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
Young is on tour in the area, playing Monday in Brooklyn and Tuesday in Bridgeport, Conn.
He said in an interview Sunday that fans in the area had been supporting him for 40 years and he wanted to do what he could to help.
