The Miami Dolphins are on fire, y'all. A win against da Bears on Thursday night will make two-in-a-row for the team, tying their season-high win streak for the first time since beating the Bills and Vikings on consecutive weeks in September. Reason enough to party, right? Hell yes. And with the help of a few corporate sponsors, an Academy Award-nominated actress-turned-rock star, and a legendary guitarist, we're going to do just that, party our fins off.
At 7 p.m., Juliette Lewis will add her name to the illustrious list of performers--Brett Michaels, Carmit Bachar of the Pussycat Dolls, and Cheap Trick, among others--that have graced the Land Shark Tailgate Stage at the AT&T Grand Plaza, located near Gate F at Sun Life Stadium. Phew, that's a mouthful of plugs.
"I'm looking forward to performing on the Land Shark Tailgate Stage for
South Florida's biggest party," she said. "I've always been a big sports
fan, so I'm looking forward to performing at Sun Life Stadium and
seeing the Miami Dolphins in action."
The pre-game event will
also mark the return of Joe Perry to the tailgate stage. The Aerosmith
co-founder/guitarist performed last season with his other band, Joe
Perry Project, and is joining Lewis on stage for a few songs on Thursday.
You don't need a game ticket for the show, just fork up the parking fees and you've got yourself one hell of a mini-concert.
Juliette Lewis with special guest Joe Perry. Thursday, November 18. Land Shark Tailgate Stage at Sun Life Stadium, 2267 Dan Marino Blvd., Miami Gardens. The tailgating starts at 7 p.m. and it's free with game tickets. Visit miamidolphins.com.
