Stephen Stills and Neil Young will team up on May 30th for the 2020 “Light Up The Night” benefit at L.A.’s Greek Theater. The show will also feature performances by Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, Stills' sons Oliver and Chris Stills, Lucius, and Fantastic Negrito — with Jack Black once again hosting. Stills and wife Kristen launched the charity gig back in 2013 to benefit and support Autism Speaks. The organization is near and dear to Stills' heart with his adult son Henry on the autism spectrum.
This year the show has bounced from L.A.'s 3,400-seat Dolby Theatre to the nearly-6,000 capacity Greek, with Stills telling Rolling Stone, “It’s a logical progression for us. They welcomed us with open arms. And if you go any bigger than it, it becomes a zoo. Neil (Young) warned me, 'Go too big and suddenly it turns into a thing that eats up half your year.'”
The Stills' decided to take a break last year after moving, and were motivated to gear up for this year's show by none other than Neil Young, with Stills recalling, “He just came roaring in one day. He said, 'You’re going to do it and I’m going to be there. If you need anything, just call.' Of course, it’s like trying to call Howard Hughes. But he’s always there for me. God bless him.”
