This year's tour commemorates the Air Force's 60th anniversary and is a mixture of music, lights, dance and historical video footage highlighting the last 60 years of Air Force history. Combine all that with the dazzling lights, costumes and precision choreography for which Tops In Blue is known worldwide, and you can look forward to a show that's sure to please everyone.

"Tops in Blue is an experience like nothing I've ever experienced in my four years of service in the Air Force," said Lieutenant Deem, an alto saxophonist in the band. "The hours are often long and the schedule hectic, however, knowing that I'm giving something back to the people which make this the world's greatest Air Force is what keeps me going."
