7 Nov 2018

Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE) is proud to announce the 2018 Jingle Bell Rock Tours, from November 27 to December 15, 2018. The tours will feature Papa Roach headlining across Asia and Phillip Phillips headlining in the United Kingdom and Europe. This holiday concert series will spread good cheer to more than 10,000 U.S. Military stationed in Europe and the Asia Pacific region.

Phillip Phillips kicks off his holiday series in the United Kingdom with performances at Royal Air Force (RAF) Mildenhall and Alconbury. Phillips will be making spirits bright for military personnel at Naval Support Activity (NSA) in Naples, Italy and Naval Station (NAVSTA) Rota in Spain. He will conclude the holiday festivities in Germany with performances at U.S. Army Garrison (USAG) Bavaria near Nuremberg, Spangdahlem Air Base (AB), USAG Wiesbaden and a final performance at Ramstein AB on December 9th.

“I am looking forward to this tour and seeing new places and meeting new people – especially those who are in service for their country,” said singer Phillip Phillips.

Papa Roach makes their long-awaited return to the Pacific Region on December 7, in Japan and will be rocking troops at Misawa AB, Yokota AB in Tokyo and Naval Air Facility (NAF) Atsugi. They will then dash over to Yokosuka to perform for the Naval Fleet stationed there. The rockers will then travel to Korea to entertain military personnel at Kunsan AB and Osan AB. The group will wrap up their holiday tour at USAG Camp Humphreys in South Korea on December 15th.

“We are excited to perform for our military again. We played a few bases last year – they were amazing crowds.  They mean so much to us for many reasons.  It will be exciting to play some of our brand-new music for these Pacific region shows,” said Jerry Horton, founder and guitar player of Papa Roach.

Military personnel will get to interact with the artists at various meet-and-greets before or after each performance. These festivities will spread holiday cheer to troops in the European and Pacific regions dedicated to protecting our country during a time when they miss home the most.
