Neil Young Solo Gulf Coast Tour
September 26, 2010 – Saenger Theatre, Mobile
Music Legend Neil Young and John Tyson, chairman of Tyson Foods, Inc., are teaming up to help fight hunger in Gulf Coast communities affected by the recent oil spill.
Tyson Foods plans to donate 100,000 pounds of chicken products in conjunction with special concerts Young has planned in late September in Mobile, Alabama; Panama City and Pensacola, Florida; and Biloxi, Mississippi. The food will be distributed to the Bay Area Food Bank, which serves Central Gulf Coast communities in Alabama, Florida and Mississippi.
In addition, concert-goers are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items, which will subsequently be given the food bank. All proceeds from the sale of unique, limited edition Neil Young t-shirts, available only at the concerts, will also be donated to the food bank.
The hunger relief effort is the result of the long-standing friendship between Neil Young and John Tyson.
