2015 TOPS IN BLUE TOUR

“The greatest strength of our Air Force is our Airmen.  The greatest strength of our Airmen is their diversity!”
– General Mark A. Welsh, Air Force Chief of Staff

 

The 2015 TOPS IN BLUE team embraces the diversity that is representative of our great nation and today’s Air Force. The diverse makeup of this year’s team goes far beyond the areas of ethnicity and gender. From the young Airmen and Officers to the seasoned Senior NCOs that comprise the team, TOPS IN BLUE reaps the benefits from a vast array of experiences and backgrounds. They come from a wide variety of Air Force career fields, including Maintenance to Medical, Communications to Intelligence, and everything in-between. As it is with the entire Air Force, each member of TOPS IN BLUE brings his or her unique perspective and talents to the mission. It is this diversity that provides the creativity and innovation that allows TOPS IN BLUE to continue to be the Premier Entertainment Showcase of the Air Force.

 


2015 TOUR SCHEDULE

Join Tops In Blue, as they perform “Freedom’s Song,” a celebration of the freedom we enjoy as Americans.  This year’s tour features the exciting sounds of the top of the charts along with popular American music of the past.   Of course, no Tops In Blue show would be complete without the great patriotic music that honors our nation and its heroes.  Add the high energy precision choreography and dazzling visual impact Tops In Blue is known for and every member of the audience will be singing along and dancing in their seats.

This year’s tour will take Tops In Blue throughout the United States and to more than 20 countries, with close to 75 performances over a seven-month period, including shows for our deployed military members in Southwest Asia.
