LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - No Doubt, Jimmy Buffett and Adam Sandler are among those on the lineup for the Bridge School Benefit concerts, an annual two-night fundraiser organized by school co-founder Neil Young.

Also on the bill, anchored by Young, are Coldplay's Chris Martin, Sheryl Crow and Monsters of Folk, among others. The concerts take place October 24 and 25 at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.

In addition to the above-mentioned musicians, day one will include performances by Fleet Foxes, Wolfmother and Gavin Rossdale. Buffett performs only on day one, and comedian Sandler performs only on day two.

Tickets for the event go on sale September 20 through LiveNation.com and charge-by-phone at (877) 598-6659. Advance tickets for reserved seating cost $75 and $150, while general admission costs $39.50 (plus service fees). There is a four-ticket purchase limit for reserved seating, and an eight-ticket limit for lawn seats.

Young, who hosts the mostly acoustic event, has played every year since launching the benefit in 1986. Proceeds from the shows support the Bridge School's work with children with severe physical and speech impediments.
