I'm still playing catch up from last week, but we now know more about the mystery project on which Mike McCready was collaborating with Chris Friel and Kim Virant. Mike's UFO cover band, Flight to Mars, will be playing at The Showbox Market on Friday, May 20th and 21st for their 14th annual benefit with a special tribute to David Bowie.
Proceeds from the show will benefit the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America's Camp Oasis program.$25 advance tickets are on sale now (tickets will be $30 day of show). Ticket information is available at ShowboxPresents.com.
Both shows will feature a special “Tribute to David Bowie” opening set, curated by the Chris Friel Orchestra. Each night will include special guests including members of Screaming Trees, Sweet Water, Stereo Embers, and other artists including Sean Bates, Jeff Rouse, Kim Virant, and many others.
Also, you have an opportunity to be the first through the door.
Concert-goers will have the opportunity to be the first in the door and 'ride the rail' through an exclusive VIP fundraising opportunity through the Wishlist Foundation – a fan-run grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting Pearl Jam’s charitable and philanthropic goals.
