The most electrifying man in entertainment heads a holiday special to honor America's heroes.
October 7, 2016
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is teaming up with an all-star cast of comedians, actors and musicians for a USO tour the modern age has been craving: "Rock The Troops".
This compelling salute to our men and women in uniform will take place at the historical Pearl Harbor-Hickam military base, and will feature a wealth of A-list headliners including:Terry Crews, Jack Black, Keegan-Michael Key, Rob Riggle, Scott Eastwood, JB Smoove, and George Clooney. Musical performances by Nick Jonas, Tenacious D, Flo Rida, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Aaron Lewis will rock the night away.
"Rock The Troops" is a modern take on the entertainment business's commitment to enrich the lives of men and women whose brave sacrifices ensure our safety here and around the world.
Said Johnson about the event, "My respect for our troops is boundless. This December we will honor the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor and given that I have military in my family, vets and Navy SEALs, the goal was to create an event that honors our troops and their families in epic fashion."
The event also serves to showcase Spike's pro-social campaign, Veterans Operation Wellness, whose mission is to inspire veterans to make the same commitment to their health and wellness that they have to their country. Spike has a long history honoring our country's heroes through programs such as "Hire A Vet" and "Fight For The Troops" as well as celebrated moments in the annual "Guys Choice Awards."
