Rock in the Park, our live Fleet concert series, continues with Paul Cannon with special guest Michael Tiernan. He's homegrown, and he’s the real deal. Paul Cannon brings a cool, peaceful vibe that will have you grooving along with your friends like you’re at a bonfire on a San Diego beach. His song "Homegrown" was the most played song by any local artist in San Diego last year, and it was even chosen by the San Diego Padres as a theme song for the home team. Paul Cannon and his band deliver guitar-driven melodies and catchy lyrical hooks that will have you singing along.
Each show features two performances: an awesome opening act and a rockin' headliner; food by The French Gourmet for purchase; beer, wine and cocktails available at the no-host bar; and the Fleet's 100+ hands-on exhibits open for exploration, including GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked the World. Michael Tiernan opens each show. He hung with monks deep in desert monasteries and lived in the Vatican, but he left the seminary for the higher calling of music, and has since racked up several national and international awards for his songwriting. His acoustic blend has a relaxed vibe mixed with a big city sound. Deep in meaning, yet playful in attitude, Michael’s music takes you from the temple to the tavern and from the beach to downtown.
All performances will be held at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, with ample FREE parking in the lot at Space Theater Way at Park Blvd. Doors open at 7PM, Michael Tiernan performs at 7:30PM, headliners perform at approximately 8:20PM. Come early, get your hands on fun science exhibits, grab a bite to eat, get a beverage and we will rock you!
