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 families 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 installation. In general, yes, non-military guests are allowed at AFE shows. But military personnel are our priority.

Keara “Tumbleweed” Scannell

Aptly nicknamed “Tumbleweed,” Keara Scannell embodies the essence of her namesake. With effortless grace and agility, she twirls herself and objects around her, delighting audiences wherever she goes.

Tumbleweed began her skating career as a teenager, when she would welcome shoppers at her parents’ roller rink-turned-retail store, Leon & Lulu, serving customers coffee and cookies while they shopped.

A multi-talented performer, she is trained in various disciplines including roller skating, fire performance, stilt walking, juggling, knot throwing, lasso tricks and clowning. With her wide range of creative talents, she is poised to captivate any audience that comes her way.

Krendl

Magician and mind reader Krendl has performed on some of the most iconic stages in over 20 countries worldwide, including the Sydney Opera House and Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. In a career spanning more than three decades, he has wowed audiences of all generations with everything from magic comedy to mentalist illusions, and his ability to connect with audiences globally.

In 2000, Krendl established his own magic company and became a full-time performer in Virginia Beach, VA, where he won the “Attraction of the Year Award” and “Best in Show” five years in a row. During this time, Krendl’s passion and drive turned into producing entertainment and creating new shows and content with his magic, and he founded Magical Solutions Inc., which became the first agency of its kind in the region, specializing in novelty and specialty acts.

He embarked on a 5-year tour with the world’s largest and most successful magic company, The Illusionists Live from Broadway, performing in over 15 countries.

Krendl attributes his success to his core belief in creating meaning with events and performances, focusing on transforming people’s emotions and never losing the passion for connecting with people. Krendl’s programs and projects embody this philosophy, from teaching children to perform magic with meaning, raising over $500,000 for schools and non-profits through his fundraising shows or delivering inspirational messages on corporate platforms.
