Marcus Goldhaber Performs in Fleet Week's COME HOME AMERICA Tour Today
The 2014 "Come Home America Tour" kickoff, scheduled for today, May 23, has been sanctioned as an official Fleet Week New York Event with support from the USO. Acclaimed NYC vocalist-songwriter Marcus Goldhaber will be singing for the troops with his 6-piece band in an all-new concert production that celebrates "The New Greatest Generation" for the Memorial Day Weekend tour launch. Media Week begins Monday (5/19) with a morning guest appearance on The Joe Piscopo Show on AM970 The Answer.
"Liberty USO is proud to be affiliated with the Come Home America Tour," said Joseph P. Brooks, President & COO of Liberty USO. "Marcus Goldhaber has a precious vision to embrace and support our troops and veterans with his rousing anthem as the soundtrack. It's the start of a movement, and being on the ground floor we stand tall in not only participating, but urging everyone to join with us as it spreads across the country."
The "Come Home America" concert to honor America's military heroes, starring the Marcus Goldhaber Band and special guests, will be held Friday, May 23 at the Cutting Room, 44 E. 32nd St, New York, NY 10016. Doors open 6:30 p.m. Show time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 advance; $20 day of show and available at www.thecuttingroomnyc.com. Tickets are free to service members in uniform.
The show features the premiere of original new material from Goldhaber's forthcoming Come Home America album. Come Home America, a pop anthem produced by Ke$ha collaborator Cliff Goldmacher, is unbound by musical genre and inspired by America's military heroes, honoring our troops and supporting our veterans abroad.
Come Home America is the centerpiece of the tour which will be hitting stride this year in concert halls, stadiums, military bases, and parades around the world. Proceeds from the tour and the song benefit Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (www.iava.org), which strives to build the "New Greatest Generation" as the first and largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.
