Juliette Lewis to Headline at the Land Shark Tailgate Stage With Special Guest Joe Perry
Oscar-nominated actress and singer to perform exclusive set with special guest appearance by Aerosmith’s lead guitarist for Dolphins vs. Bears pre-game concert.
MIAMI, FL – November 16, 2010: The Miami Dolphins announced today that Academy Award-nominated Hollywood actress and recording artist, JULIETTE LEWIS, will perform with a special guest appearance by co-founding member, principal co-songwriter, lead guitarist and co-producer of Aerosmith, JOE PERRY, at the Land Shark Tailgate Stage on the AT&T Grand Plaza at Sun Life Stadium on Thursday, November 18th, prior to the Dolphins-Bears game presented by Wachovia. The exclusive pre-game Tailgate concert will begin at 7:00 p.m.
Following the release of two highly acclaimed albums with her band, The Licks, Juliette Lewis released her debut solo album Terra Incognita last fall. Produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Grammy Award winning leader of Mars Volta, her vocal performances on the album showcase a remarkably dynamic range going from haunting to soulful and roaring. Lewis wrote most of the 11 tracks with long time friend and musician Chris Watson and recorded the album in between both of her and Omar’s tours at the end of 2008. The record was mixed by the legendary Rich Cosey (NIN, Muse, Foo Fighters). After performing a number of songs from her solo album, Juliette will be joined by special guest guitar legend from Aerosmith, Joe Perry, to perform two additional songs together live on-stage.
“I’m looking forward to performing on the Land Shark Tailgate Stage for South Florida’s biggest party,” said Lewis. “Over the years, I’ve traveled around the country and overseas to perform at numerous concert venues and clubs, but rarely do I get to perform for such a major sporting event in front of an audience with such a passion for their home team. 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.”
After spending six years focusing on her music, Juliette Lewis recently made her return to the screen in four major film projects. She is currently receiving rave reviews from critics and audiences alike in “Conviction,” in which she appears alongside Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell. She also co-stars in director Todd Phillips’ new film, “Due Date,” out this month, with Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. Most recently Lewis appeared in “Whip It,” co-starring Ellen Page, Kristen Wiig and Jimmy Fallon, and “The Switch” with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman.
Having previously attracted artists such as Jimmy Buffett, Carmit Bachar of the Pussycat Dolls, Latin Grammy Award-winning artists Jesse & Joy for Hispanic Heritage Month 2009, American Idol winner, Kris Allen, Michael Jackson’s lead guitarist, Orianthi, 2009 CMA Musician of the Year, Mac McAnally, multi-platinum artists Cheap Trick, Texan rocker, Alejandro Escovedo, legendary rock icon, Bret Michaels, The Darling Stilettos with Matt Sorum and Dave Navarro and Ilo Ferreira with Grammy Award-winning R&B legend Howard Hewett, the Land Shark Tailgate Stage on the AT&T Grand Plaza at Sun Life Stadium has become a much anticipated part of the Dolphins’ home-game experience.
