In celebration of their 10th anniversary, Flight to Mars, the UFO tribute band featuring Mike McCready, Gary Westlake, Paul Passereli, Mike Musburger, Ty Bailie and Tim DiJulio, will embark on a 7-date west coast benefit tour, which begins on May 14th in Santa Ana and ends May 23th in Seattle. Along the way, Flight to Mars will be joined by several local artists in each city, culminating in a hootenanny of artists that have opened for the band in the past ten years in Seattle. The benefit tour is in support of two organizations close to McCready’s heart; CCFA’s Camp Oasis and Advocacy for Patients.
The Wishlist Foundation, a Pearl Jam fan nonprofit organization, is hosting VIP fundraiser pre-parties right before each show in every city on the tour. Each VIP attendee will receive a laminate pass to the show, catch the sound check, enjoy delicious appetizers, cash bar and goodie bag. During the fundraisers, VIPs will have the chance to mingle with Mike McCready and the other members of Flight to Mars.
