Shaquille O’Neal to perform at American Family Insurance Championship concert June 22
Shaq will join REO Speedwagon, Sara Evans and A Thousand Horses at Breese Stevens Field in Madison.
Shaquille “Shaq” O’Neal, retired NBA Champion, three time NBA Finals MVP, 15-time NBA All-Star and all-time fan favorite, will perform at the PGA TOUR Champions American Family Insurance Championship concert at Breese Stevens Field on Friday, June 22.
Shaq, a brand ambassador for The General®, one of American Family Insurance’s affiliates, will put his DJ skills on display by performing two 20-minute sets during the concert. The first performance will occur after the opening act A Thousand Horses, and one after the second act, Sara Evans. The headliner, REO Speedwagon, will follow the second DJ Shaq performance.
The popular celebrity, athlete, business professional and comedian will also make a brief appearance at the American Family Insurance Championship at University Ridge earlier that day.
“Shaq is truly larger than life, and we’re sure his personality and performance skills will add a fun and exciting presence during his visit to Madison and participation in our events,” said Nate Pokrass, American Family Insurance Championship tournament director. “For the price of one ticket, concert-goers will be treated to not only one act, but four, and we’re sure Shaq will help us raise even more money for charity.”
