It appears Neil Young and Willie Nelson can attract quite a crowd to rural Nebraska.
Bold Nebraska reports it has sold more than 6,500 tickets for the benefit concert that will help fund the anti-Keystone XL pipeline campaign.
The group also says it will sell only 500 more tickets to cap the crowd a 7,000.
Young and Nelson will be the featured artists at the “Harvest the Hope” concert scheduled for Saturday, September 27th at the farm of Art and Helen Tanderup, near Neligh.
Rock performer Lukas Nelson and Frank Waln, promoted as a hip-hop artist from the Rosebud Sioux tribe will also perform.
Bold Nebraska is working with other environmental groups to convince President Barack Obama to deny TransCanada a presidential permit to build the pipeline from western Canada to Nebraska.
