A long-time fan of Jackson Browne, Pinecrest resident Rick Tonkinson will co-sponsor the Jackson Browne concert at Festival Miami at the University of Miami on Oct. 26 at the Gusman Concert Hall. Browne will perform new songs and award-winning mega hits such as Running on Empty, The Pretender and Somebody’s Baby in a special all-acoustic concert.
Tickets are $65, $45, $25 and may be purchased online at www.miami.edu/frost/index.php/frost/frost_events/jackson_browne_unplugged.
Tonkinson, a UM alumnae and president of Tonkinson Financial, says it is a pleasure “to co-sponsor this living legend of rock and roll to the community.”
This is third consecutive year that the Tonkinson family business has co-sponsored the Festival Miami, sponsoring Monica Mancini and Lamont Dozier in prior years. Tonkinson and his wife, Margarita, are long-time supporters of the Frost School of Music and were instrumental in having Bruce Hornsby and Jon Secada become honorary members of the Friends of Music, a support organization that provides scholarships to music students.
