New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Michael Bolton, the multiple Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and social activist who has sold more than 65 million records worldwide, was first drawn to Detroit
while researching for his album "A Tribute to Hitsville USA." The home of his greatest musical influences, he realized that there was so much more to explore about Detroit's past, present and future. His resulting project, the engaging and uplifting documentary "American Dream: Detroit," celebrates the golden age of the Motor City - featuring its native entertainment legends like Francis Ford Coppola, Jerry Bruckheimer, Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson
and Alice Cooper
- and reveals the landscape of a new Detroit
being built by young visionaries and entrepreneurial moguls alike.
In addition to the documentary, moviegoers will enjoy an exclusive performance from Michael Bolton
& Friends, captured live from The Grove in Los Angeles. Tickets for "Michael Bolton Presents American Dream: Detroit" go on sale to the public on Friday, April 13 at www.FathomEvents.com and participating box offices. Michael Bolton
fans can get early access to tickets on April 11 by signing up in advance at www.MichaelBolton.com.
Fathom Events and Passion
Films bring "Michael Bolton Presents American Dream: Detroit" to over 450 U.S. cinemas for one night on Tuesday, May 15, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. local time, through Fathom's Digital
Broadcast Network (DBN). A complete list of locations will be available April 13 on the Fathom Events website (cinemas and participants are subject to change).
This documentary illustrates why the history and the future of Detroit
matters in the global landscape. Told through the eyes of Bolton's own discovery, this important story has remained largely obscured by mainstream media's preference to portray only the devastation of the city's downfall, until now. This is the story of the American Dream.
"This documentary is a truly inspiring tale of a city's historical transformation that is certain to entertain, educate and move fans coast to coast," said Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt. "Additionally, the special bonus concert is a must-see for my friend Michael and 'Hitsville USA' aficionados."
