Willie Nelson - Neil Young concert to stop Keystone XL pipeline is already sold out

Etix says no more tickets remain for the benefit, described as follows on the reservation website:
Two music legends — Neil Young and Willie Nelson — will perform a benefit concert on Sept. 27 on a farm near Neligh, Nebraska that is on the route of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline and also crosses the historic Ponca Tribe “Trail of Tears.” Proceeds from the “Harvest the Hope” concert will go to Bold Nebraska, the Indigenous Environmental Network and the Cowboy & Indian Alliance, to fund the ongoing fight against the Keystone XL pipeline, as well as a number of small, community-based clean energy projects on farms and tribal land. The afternoon concert will take place in a field on a farm owned by a family who are part of a strong collective of Nebraska landowners refusing to sell their land to TransCanada for the Keystone XL (KXL) pipeline. Also performing: Willie's son - Lukas Nelson, Native American hip-hop artist Frank Waln; and the "Stopping the Pipeline Rocks All-Stars." Children ages 7 and under do not need a ticket as long as they are accompanied by a paying adult.
