Bret Michaels will perform a handful of shows in November to benefit active military, first responders and teachers

Bret Michaels is hitting the road for a short November tour. The dates, dubbed the Homedown Heroes concerts, will raise funds for active military, first responders and teachers in each of the stop, as well as various local charities.

The concerts will feature support from Lita Ford and Night Ranger.

“These shows will be a night of nothing but hits, and I am honored to be headlining these amazing shows in these incredible cities, with such awesome performers,” Michaels said in a statement. “I promise, as always, I will give 1000% on stage playing all the hits through the span of my career from Poison to ‘Rock Of Love,’ ‘Life As I Know It’ and ‘The Apprentice,’ and I will bring one of the largest thrusts (stage extension) anyone’s ever seen. That gives me the opportunity to be closer to, more engaged and basically one with the fans. This is much more than a concert…It’s a musical event honoring hometown heroes.”

Michaels added that “while on tour, every night I bring local heroes up onstage to honor them during the show and we’ll continue to do so at these shows.”

Each concert will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, a local animal shelter and local veterans’ and/or police organizations.
