On April 25, 2015, rock legends and top celebrities gathered for the third annual Light Up the Blues concert to raise awareness for autism. Held at the famous Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, the sold-out concert featured great musical performances by Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Shawn Colvin, Steve Earle, The White Buffalo, Chris Stills, and others. To cap off the evening, all the performers took the stage for a spirited rendition of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World.”

Celebrities in attendance included Brad Pitt, Jack Black, Christina Applegate, Gary Cole, Amy Brenneman, and many more. Roland Corporation U.S. was also there to lend support, donating several musical instruments that were hand-signed by the performers and included in a silent auction to benefit Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization.
