At Miami Rocks Our Troops, an all-star cast of musicians and celebrities show their stripes in a benefit concert that salutes our returning heroes and raises funds for the veterans organization HonorVet.org. During the evening of music and remembrance, multi-Grammy winner Jon Secada celebrates the 20-year anniversary of his 1992 English-language debut album with greatest hits such as “Just Another Day” and “Angel.” Multiplatinum country artist and Hannah Montana begetter Billy Ray Cyrus frazzled cardiologists across the nation with the classic 1992 hit “Achy Breaky Heart.” On the 29th, he instills national pride with patriotic tracks from his latest record, I’m American. Legendary ZZ Top guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Billy Gibbons lays down his signature, virtuosic heavy blues rock, Angel & Khriz uncork soulful and swinging Puerto Rican reggaetón, and crossover legend Jose Feliciano prematurely unwraps his signature hit, “Feliz Navidad.”
Other high-profile acts on the bill include American Idol winner Kris Allen, who woos audiences with acoustic-rock hits such as “Live Like We’re Dying.” The BankUnited Center pulsates during a set from dance-club sensation Erika Jayne, and Danielle Peck adds twang to the affair with Top-30 country hits such as “I Don’t” and “Findin’ a Good Man.” Willie Panama captivates with electrifying salsa, and five-time Grammy winner Jorge Villamizar of the group Bacilos treats fans to breezy tropical music and hits he wrote for Marc Anthony.
The charismatic Secada shares the stage with most of the headliners, who receive musical assistance from ZZ Top lead guitarist Billy Gibbons and his all-star band of ringers, anchored by drummer Anton Fig of Late Show with David Letterman fame. Boosting morale and raising collar temperatures, the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders break out their pompoms and give the troops ample doses of much deserved rah-rahs.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
Though Miami Rocks Our Troops sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
