Neil Young and Willie Nelson will perform a benefit concert in September on land in the path of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

The concert will take place at a farm near Neligh that's on the route of the proposed pipeline. It also crosses the historic Ponca Tribe "Trail of Tears."

Proceeds from the "Harvest of Hope" concert will go to Bold Nebraska, Indigenous Environmental Network, and the Cowboy and Indian Alliance, to fund the ongoing fight against the Keystone XL pipeline.

The concert will take place Saturday, September 27th at 1 p.m. in a field on a farm owned by the Tanderup family, who are part of a group of Nebraska landowners refusing to sell their land to TransCanada.

Tickets go on sale August 20th at BoldNebraska.org.
