Rocker Needs Intense Training For Concert

MARFA, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One rocker is doing intense training to prep for a high and mighty concert.

Miles Zuniga, frontman for Fastball, known for their 90s hit “The Way,” is preparing for a 30-mile hike up to Peru’s Machu Pichu, where he’ll play benefit shows to support cancer research in the country Wednesday (Oct. 8) through October 17.

The rocker doesn’t know “the way” he’ll handle the extreme adventure, since he’s not much of an “outdoor guy.”

Zuniga says, “I’ve never backpacked or even been camping in my entire life. I’m not gonna deny that I’m a city slicker, but I’m determined to make it.”

Zuniga has been running in preparation for his big trek, mainly out of fear of bruising his ego.

He explains, “There’s going to be older people with us and I don’t want to be the lagger. I’m only 42. I have personal pride to uphold.”

Luckily, Zuniga will have help from some sherpas, who he calls “super roadies” because they can climb the 14,000-feet to the top in flip- flops while carrying equipment.
