9 March - 25 March


PIANO PROS Bring the noise

From the first note, Battle of the Keys will draw you into a sing-along, laugh-along show that keeps you smiling for days. How does it work? Three musicians duel it out delivering spot-on versions of tunes from every era and every genre. Join in and sing at the top of your lungs, or quietly enjoy the show. Either way, you’ll be humming the tunes long after the trio is gone.

Tour FAQs
  • How do I get schedule information on specific shows?

    We make it easy. The calendar and menu of events are categorized by genre and region, right here on our site.

  • Why do entertainers perform for the military?

    Performers need to perform. It's in their DNA. Plus, going on tour with Armed Forces Entertainment is an opportunity for artists to give back and honor the sacrifices deployed servicemembers and their familes make on behalf of our country. For up-and-coming artists, touring with AFE is a great way to build an audience. For established artists, it's an up-close-and-personal way to say thanks to fans.

  • How much do tickets cost?

    It's FREE to attend every Armed Forces Entertainment show. Every single show, every single time.

  • Why are there occasional schedule changes?

    Sometimes emergencies and personal challenges pop up for scheduled artists. Add the uncertainty of world politics, and tour agendas inevitably shift. We rush the updates to the effected venue and make changes to the online show schedule as quickly as possible. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen, and we're sorry for the inconvenience.

  • Can I invite non-military people to AFE events?

    It depends on the rules of your instillation. In general, yes, non-military guests are allowed at AFE shows. But military personnel are our priority.
