Have you heard? Bret Michaels is back in Cedar Rapids and this time he is bringing some friends.

The "Hometown Heroes" tour comes to the U.S  Cellular Center on Saturday night, November 9th. The former '80s rocker from Poison is joined by Night Ranger, Lita Ford, and Joe Nichols.

The best part is, it's all to honor our active military and veterans, teachers and first responders.

You can win tickets to this awesome event by being caller 5 this week to "Beat the Box Office" at noon on KDAT's Retro Cafe. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday, August 30 but a presale begins at 10 a.m. Use this link to take advantage of that presale. It will become the general on-sale page on Friday.

All these artists have been here numerous times over the years and always offer a great show. We look forward to it and we know you do, too. Let's party with our hometown heroes!
