Kevin Bacon Plays at Pikes Peak Rocks

Actor Kevin Bacon and his band the Bacon Brothers will be holding the first concert ever on the top of Pikes Peak, America's most visited mountain on June 27th, 2009 in Manitou Springs, Colorado. The Pikes Peak Rocks concert event is to benefit the international foundation Love Hope Strength. The proceeds will benefit global cancer care and a nationwide bone marrow registration campaign to locate matches for patients with Leukemia and other blood disorders.

The charming town of Manitou Springs sits at the base of Pikes Peak and 100 hikers will hike to the top of the 14,110 foot mountain to the concert and enjoy this very special unique event. With Colorado Springs only 4 miles away, the town is expecting big crowds. In addition to the Bacon Brothers,
The White Buffalo and Cy Curnin will be playing at Denver's Hard Rock Cafe that evening.

Those wishing to support this initiative can register to hike, purchase tickets for the Hard Rock Cafe celebration, or make a donation at
