St. Petersburg, Fla. (Feb. 6, 2017) – Music fans, fasten your seatbelts. Because Rock Stars & Stripes: A Rock ‘n Roll Road Trip Across America arrives at the Duke Energy Center for the Arts – Mahaffey Theater Friday, April 14 at 8 p.m.
The brainchild of former Boston frontman and guitar player David Victor, Rock Stars & Stripes is a unique concert experience that takes audiences on a virtual road trip across the country by performing classic American rock ‘n’ roll hits set against the backdrop of engaging video of some of America’s most iconic landmarks, places and people.
During this explosive performance, music lovers will hear a selection of songs from some of the best American bands in music history, including Aerosmith, The Eagles, Kiss, Bruce Springsteen, Journey, Boston and many more.
“Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to travel our country many times and experience the sights, sounds and culture of each of the great places I’ve performed,” said Victor. “I created Rock Stars & Stripes to offer everyone this same experience.”
As part of this “experience,” Victor has also created the “Local Heroes” program, which recognizes local community members for their service. Heroes include teachers, community advocates, police, fire or military organizations, volunteers – anyone who has had a positive impact on the community.
