Spoon cover Van Morrison’s ‘Jackie Wilson Said (I’m in Heaven When You Smile)’ at benefit gig

Bridge School Benefit Concert also featured performance from Ryan Adams

Spoon last night (October 24) performed at Neil Young’s annual all-acoustic Bridge School Benefit Concert in California, playing a set that included a cover Van Morrison’s ‘Jackie Wilson Said (I’m in Heaven When You Smile)’. Scroll down to see some fan-recorded footage via Pitchfork.

The show also featured a performance from Ryan Adams, who improvised a song about a shirtless man in the crowd (also below), as well sets from Young himself (with Promise Of The Real), The Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow, and St Vincent.

The Bridge School Benefit is an annual two-day concert to raise funds for the special-needs school founded by Young’s wife Pegi. Most artists on the bill will play both days, with the event continuing later tonight.
