“I’m am thrilled to have John Popper, Delilah, the New England Patriots Cheerleaders and members of the Air Force Band along to accompany me on this tour to entertain U.S. military men and women around the world,” said Ms. O’Neal.
Her newest CD – “Brave” – delivers her country songs, “Somebody’s Hero,” and “Trying to Find Atlantis.” This album follows her pair of No. 1 hits “There is No Arizona,” and “When I Think About Angels,” from her last album.
“Operation Season’s Greetings will put on a show that’s on par with any high-dollar concert tour,” said Dave Ballengee, deputy director of the Band of the U.S. Air Force Reserve. “This Air Force tour group will bring a cargo plane of state-of-the-art sound, stage and lighting equipment and will put on a show that our troops will never forget.”
Performing as the opening act for Ms. O’Neal, the USAFE and Reserve bands will play well-known pop and contemporary favorites along with John Popper. Delilah will take dedications to servicemembers’ loved ones back home. To help warm up the crowd, the New England Patriots Cheerleaders are sending six members of their cheerleading squad to accompany the tour.
Doors open at 6 p.m. A shuttle bus will run to Hangar One from the Ramstein Base Exchange from 5:45 to 7 p.m., and will return passengers after the show.
