Concert Honoring Veterans to Air on Tribune Broadcasting Television Stations on December 23
Featuring Trace Adkins, Richie Sambora, Dave Navarro, Billy Gibbons, Nancy Wilson, Sam Moore, Orianthi, Lindsey Ell, and Robert Randolph
December 19, 2017 – New York, — Tribune Broadcasting is proud be the broadcast home of AMERICA SALUTES YOU AND WALL STREET ROCKS PRESENTS: GUITAR LEGENDS FOR HEROES, a concert honoring those who serve in the military, veterans and their families. The all-star concert, which was filmed at Terminal 5 in New York City in November, was hosted by Trace Adkins, with special performances by Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi), Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Nancy Wilson (Heart), Sam Moore (Sam and Dave), Orianthi, Lindsey Ell, and Robert Randolph (and The Family Band).
The 60-minute special which will air nationally on Tribune Broadcasting television stations on December 23rd, is dedicated to our brave heroes as a “thank you” to our military, veterans and their loved ones, and will raise funds for the high impact charities that support them.
After 16 years of war, the number of veterans including the National Guard and Reservists, with multiple tours of combat duty, is the largest in modern American history. Today, many of those who have served are unemployed, homeless, uninsured and struggling to provide for their families. Now more than ever, veterans and their families need our service.
“Those who serve our country sacrifice and stand for all of us,” said Larry Wert, President, Tribune Broadcasting. “The goal for the Guitar Legends for Heroes concert is to raise awareness and provide support for the men and women in uniform, and their families, who selflessly serve our country.”
