‘Side By Side: A Celebration Of Service’ will occur during NYC Fleet Week 2019.
Gavin DeGraw, Imagine Dragons, Boyz II Men and several other artists will come together to honor the military during a special event at Rockefeller Center in New York over Memorial Day Weekend.
The event, "Side By Side: A Celebration of Service," was created by Northwell Health and will occur during NYC Fleet Week 2019. Throughout the day on May 25, veterans and their families will be honored and celebrated throughout musical performances, military exhibits, and conversations at Rockefeller Center. The event is free and open to the public and will include performances by Boyz II Men, DeGraw, The U.S. Navy Band, and cast members from Jersey Boys and Wicked.
Later that night, Imagine Dragons will perform at Radio City Music Hall and free tickets will be distributed to hundreds of members of the military, veterans and their families. Tickets for the concert go on-sale March 29 at 12:00 p.m. EST Ticketmaster.com.
"This is an opportunity to reflect on the joy of being free and alive in America, and extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to all those who have served our country as well as the families who support them,” said Michael Dowling, president & ceo of Northwell Health in a statement. “It’s not the celebration itself that’s important, but never forgetting the sacrifices of veterans and their families."
