David Victor, the former guitarist and vocalist for the multiplatinum band BOSTON, knows what it is like to tour the country without ever really experiencing it. Which is why when he created his new show, he decided that it was time to celebrate what really matters – the music, people and places that make this country great.
“Rock Stars & Stripes: The American Rock Experience” does just that. Combining classic American rock hits from world-class musicians, including Victor, with a show that honors the city in which it performs, this unique concert is hitting the Bob Hope Theatre Friday, September 23 at 8 p.m..
During this innovative concert, audiences will not only enjoy a variety of classic rock hits performed by one of the industry’s most acclaimed musicians but will also be taken on a virtual “rock ‘n roll road trip across America”, with a live show enhanced by powerful and evocative video.
“When we were planning this show, we really wanted to make it special for the residents of Stockton so we sent professional camera crews to capture the most interesting and iconic elements of the community”, said Victor. “During the concert, these images will be dramatically displayed behind us along with the music. Fans may see their school, the firehouse or even themselves!”
Video is just one way that the “Rock Stars & Stripes: The American Rock Experience” will celebrate Stockton. Three “Local Heroes” will also be recognized at the show. Heroes can be nominated by anyone in the community and be from police, fire or military organizations, a teacher, a volunteer or anyone who has had a positive impact on the city. Selected Local Heroes will receive two free tickets to the show and a “Local Hero” medallion during a short onstage ceremony. Those looking to nominate a “Local Hero” are encouraged to see more here.
Victor and his production company David Victor Presents will also donate an autographed, wrapped ROCK STARS & STRIPES guitar for auction and sell show programs which will also benefit the evening’s charity, Rivers of Recovery. Rivers of Recovery is dedicated to providing rehabilitation to physically and psychologically injured combat veterans through innovative, outdoor based therapies and pioneering research.
