SUN ‘n FUN is Proud to Present Aaron Tippin and his Red White & Loud Concert Sponsored by Scotts Miracle Gro

February 8, 2012


SUN ’n FUN CAMPUS, LAKELAND, FL. – SUN ‘n FUN is proud to present country music star, passionate pilot and patriot, Aaron Tippin and the Commemorative Air Force’s (CAF’s) Red, White & Loud musical tribute to America’s heroes! This one-of-a-kind performance will honor those who have sacrificed to protect our freedom. The concert is scheduled during the SUN 'n FUN International Fly-In & Expo on Thursday, March 29, at 8:00 PM on the SUN ‘n FUN Florida Air Museum’s AOPA sponsored Pavilion stage.

Tippin is a platinum-selling recording artists and songwriter with 13 albums and more than 30 charted singles, including “Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagles Fly,” “You’ve Got to Stand for Something” and “Kiss This.” His live performances have wowed audiences across the country due to his skills as a showman and love for his country.

The evening’s concert pairs Tippin with the CAF’s most famous warbird, their Boeing B-29 Superfortress, FiFi, which will arrive at SUN ‘n FUN earlier in the week and offer tours and “dream flights” plus thundering fly-bys in SUN ‘n FUN’s daily Airshow throughout the entire week. Tippin’s multi-media show will evoke the drama and power of FiFi, the icon of U.S. Military Aviation History, proudly restored and flown by the Commemorative Air Force, Midland, Texas.

A highly experienced airman himself, Aaron soloed on his 16th birthday. He became a commercial multi-engine instrument-rated pilot by the age of 18 and he is also helicopter-qualified. A certified aircraft and power plant mechanic, he owns a 1941 Stearman, a 1946 J3 Cub and 1959 Helio Curior – all in flying condition. Over the past two decades, platinum recording artist Aaron Tippin has become one of the most recognizable and influential voices in country music. With 13 recorded CD’s to his name and more than 30 charted singles, he performs nearly 200 dates each year.

Aaron Tippin’s Red, White & Loud concert will begin at 8:00 PM Thursday evening, March 29. as part of our evening program line-up. Seating is available to all SUN ‘n FUN weekly or Thursday ticket (wristband) wearers on a first come, first serve basis. A special $10 after 5:00 PM admission rate to the show site has been announced for those interested in attending the concert that cannot join the SUN ‘n FUN festivities during the day. Parking will be in SUN ‘n FUN’s Main Parking Lot off West Pipkin Road. Dinner and beverages will be available prior to the concert in the SUNSET Grill on the SUN ‘n FUN campus.
