Bret Michaels Announces Hometown Heroes Shows
Poison frontman Bret Michaels has announced that he will be playing a special series of Hometown Heroes concerts this fall that will feature special guests and will honor local heroes.
Night Ranger have signed on to appear at all five concert and Lita Ford, Firehouse, Joe Nichols and Joe Diffie will join the lineup on various dates.
Bret had this to say, "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."
