If you’re looking for something to watch on Sunday night for Memorial Day 2022, you should consider checking out the concert event being hosted by actors Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna.
Sinise has become well known for the work he does for American veterans and the families of the fallen. Mantegna has also done great work in this area.
The concert is going to air on PBS on Sunday night starting at 8 PM ET.
WTOP News has more details:
Gary Sinise, Joe Mantegna co-host National Memorial Day Concert live outside Capitol
The National Memorial Day Concert returns in person after two years of virtual events.
It will broadcast live on PBS from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol at 8 p.m. Sunday.
“I’m so glad that we’re back live on site in front of the Capitol,” co-host Joe Mantegna told WTOP. “We’ve had to do it virtually the last couple of years, I still think we did a good job of putting the show together, but it’s nice to be back. That’s the seat of our government.”
Mantegna (“Criminal Minds”) will co host once again with Gary Sinise (“Forrest Gump”).
“Joe started in 2002, mine was 2005,” Sinise told WTOP. “He [asked] would I come bring my band to do a segment. I did, it was magnificent, wonderful to be on stage [with] 200,000 people on the lawn and 10 million watching on PBS. Then Joe called and said, ‘They’d like you to come back and co-host’ … and I’ve been doing it with Joe ever since.”
This year’s performers include Lea Salonga, Norm Lewis, Craig Morgan, Rhiannon Giddens, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Pia Toscano and the National Symphony Orchestra.
It looks like it’s going to be a great event.
Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna will return to host the National Memorial Day Concert this SUNDAY at 8/7 pm (repeating at 9:30/8:30 pm). Watch it on KET, or stream it on our website and on the PBS video app. pic.twitter.com/upi1mptjAf
