Arcade Fire last night (October 26) performed with Neil Young at the Bridge School Benefit concert.

The band played a full acoustic set at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. Introducing the track, singer Win Butler said he had a dream in which he wrote a new song, on awake he realised it sounded like a Neil Young song.

Butler then declared that the song was called 'I Dreamed A Neil Young Song', before inviting the legendary singer, who curated the weekend of music, which also includes performances for Queens Of The Stone Age and The Killers, on to the stage.

Tonight, Tom Waits is due to perform his first gig since 2008 at the Bridge School Benefit concert. Announcing the gig on Facebook last month, Waits said in a statement: "I had every good intention to stay home and work on my JD Salinger Halloween mask, but when Neil told me yesterday he was serving burnt cow's eyes on a flat tire and it's all gluten free, I invited myself!"

Waits' Facebook page also states that he'll be performing a set featuring songs from his latest album, 'Bad As Me', with his band (David Hidalgo, guitar; Les Claypool, bass and Casey Waits, drums).
