Willie Nelson and Neil Young Join Fight Against Keystone Pipeline

There will be a couple of new weapons in Neligh, Nebraska’s fight against the Keystone XL pipeline coming through their town: Willie Nelson and Neil Young. This pair of musical legends have agreed to play a concert in Neligh to raise funds and awareness for the cause.

The Keystone XL pipeline is an extension to the Keystone pipeline, which transports toxic tar sands oil underground across North America. It’s already caused numerous problems, including a serious leak in Arkansas, which is why this Nebraska town wants to keep the pipeline off their land.

This isn’t the first time that Neil Young has spoken out against the Keystone pipeline. He previously visited Fort McMurray, where the tar sands oil is obtained, and said that the place is a wasteland and residents of the area are dying.

Local farmer, Art Tanderup, who is hosting the concert on his land, is worried about the potential impact on the water supply. He told ABC9 News, “If this pipeline seeps, leaks, whatever it might do and it will happen some time, it gets out into that sand, it goes directly into that aquifer.”

The concert is taking place on September 27th at the Tanderup farm. All 7,000 tickets for the event have already been sold.
