Micheals will perform two shows in two different stadiums in 24 hours
Bret Michaels will be kicking off the 2019 NFL season with two performances in two different stadiums in 24 hours. The Poison frontman and avid football fan will be performing his hits in Commons Park at US Bank Stadium on Saturday, September 7th at 3:30 pm CT for the Minnesota Vikings kickoff party as they host the Atlanta Falcons. Immediately following Michaels will fly to Phoenix, AZ to perform on Sunday, September 8th at State Farm Stadium for the Arizona Cardinals opening game Halftime party, as the Cardinals take on the Detroit Lions. Michaels performance will include a special medley of some of his biggest hits including “Nothing But A Good Time,” “Unskinny Bop,” and “Talk Dirty To Me,” which is guaranteed to keep the party moving and the energy at an all-time high. The game will start at 1:25 PT with the Halftime party begins at approximately at 2:40 pm.
Michaels will then make an attempt to fly all the way back to the East Coast for a late night after party performance following the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots game, if time allows. Michaels can also be seen in the 100 Years of Football documentary airing on the NFL network and on October 22nd as a special guest on the Big Interview with Dan Rather on AXS TV.
Michaels is known to be a sports fanatic who truly loves football. He played quarterback and linebacker positions for both his junior high and high school football teams; and continues to play to this day. Since the beginning of his touring days, he is infamously known to hold band and crew football games in arena and truck stop parking lots across the country. This tradition continues while on his record breaking Unbroken World Tour.
“I love football, it was one of the biggest bonds between me and my father that we shared together right up to my dad’s recent passing. My father was a veteran and a die-hard Steelers fan,” Michaels shares. “The start of every season still gets me fired up, it’s a new beginning for every team. I am honored that I have been asked by both the Vikings and the Cardinals to perform at their opening games. Whether I’m watching or playing football with family and friends, tailgating, or performing at a game, I love the energy, competitiveness, and everything about it. All I know is a good game of football is great for the soul.”
Look for Bret Michaels currently on his Unbroken World Tour featuring five very special Hometown Heroes Concerts in arenas around the country saluting Veterans, first responders, teachers, utility workers and three generations of amazing fans. Michaels new song and video for “Unbroken,” which is about facing adversity, was co-written by and featuring his youngest daughter Jorja Bleu.
