Music icon, reality TV star and life-long Type 1 Diabetic BRET MICHAELS is
extending his “UNBROKEN WORLD TOUR” to include a series of
HOMETOWN HEROES special
events concerts stopping at
Arena, Veterans Day, November 11.
He’s bringing a multi-genre combo of different artists in
celebration of Veteran’s Day and to kick off the holiday season. The Poison
frontman (whose shows have been described as “full-on fan engaged events”) will
be joined by rock/pop acts
(“Sister Christian,” “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me”) , Lita Ford (“Kiss Me
Deadly,” “Close Your Eyes”) and with country superstar,
Joe Nichols (“Tequila
Makes Her Clothes Come Off,” “Sunny and 75”) making special appearances.
shows will be a night of nothing but hits, and I am honored to be headlining
these amazing shows in these incredible cities, with such awesome performers. I
promise, as always, I will give 1000% on stage playing all the hits through the
span of my career from Poison to “Rock of Love,” “Life As I Know It” and “The
Apprentice,” and I will bring one of the largest thrusts (stage extension)
anyone’s ever seen. That gives me the opportunity to be closer to, more engaged
and basically one with the fans. This is much more than a concert…It’s a
musical event honoring hometown heroes.” --BRET MICHAELS
Beyond the music, each concert--headlined by MICHAELS, the son of
a veteran--will raise awareness and funds for local charities while honoring
local “heroes” (local active military, veterans, teachers, first responders and
fans) as the nation celebrates Veteran’s Day.
tour, every night I bring local heroes up on-stage to honor them during the
show and we’ll continue to do so at these shows. It’s important to me that we
recognize veterans, first responders, teachers and people who are making a
difference in their communities. My dad (who recently passed away) was an
amazing father and friend. He was a veteran and a role model to his community,
he received military honors at his service that was witnessed by family members
and friends at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery. He taught me the importance of
a strong work ethic and to face adversity, pick yourself up and get back at it
challenges you.” --BRET MICHAELS
Produced by Red Rock Productions who’ve partnered with MICHAELS
(whose charitable donations in every city he performs in have become
well-known), the multi-city tour launches November 6 in Casper, Wyoming before
heading to Sioux City, IA (November 8), Cedar Rapids, IA (November 9)
Independence, MO (November 10), and
11 in Park City, KS.
Designed in the tradition of a “nothing but a good time big rock
show,” which Michaels and his band Poison helped bring to the forefront of pop
culture, each night of the tour will be a unforgettable party, from the music,
vibe and the atmosphere, to the maximum production, (including dynamic lighting
and pyro throughout). The unique billings on each show will result in
once-in-a-lifetime and never-before-seen collaborations between the acts.
There will also be opportunities for up close and personal VIP
concert experiences as well as some special fan surprises through the night.
Tickets for these shows go on sale
Friday August 30 at 10:00 AM.
