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.
“While on 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 when life challenges you.”
A portion of the proceeds from each show will go to regional chapters of the JDRF (the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes [T1D] research) and additional local charities including:
