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.
In December 2023, Hoobastank will celebrate 20 years since the release of their sophomore album “The Reason.” The album took the band to even greater heights, following the success of their 2001 debut album “Hoobastank,” which featured hit singles “Crawling In The Dark,” “Running Away” and “Remember Me”—all of which have since been certified RIAA platinum. “The Reason” featured the massively successful single of the same name, which helped solidify the band as a household name. The single went platinum four times and racked up multiple number-one chart positions along the way, with the album going platinum twice.
“The Reason” has more than 3 billion streams, leading to the band’s catalog surpassing 4 billion streams. The official music video for “The Reason” recently hit a major milestone of 1 billion views on YouTube, elevating the band into the exclusive “billions club” alongside other great artists.
In recent years, Hoobastank has had a mainstream resurgence through TikTok and hit television shows. The viral success of the #NotAPerfectPerson trend on TikTok brought new attention to the hit single “The Reason;” the hashtag currently has more than 957 million views and the song has been used in more than 249k posts. When Netflix’s hit show “Beef” gained popularity in 2023, the show featured Hoobastank’s “The Reason,” which resulted in the song reentering the iTunes Rock charts and appearing on Shazam’s U.S. Top 200.
Because of this mainstream attention and a newer generation of music fans discovering the band, they are clocking in at over 9 million monthly listeners and 2 million followers on Spotify. “Crawling in the Dark” has 125 million streams on the platform, and “The Reason” is well on its way to hitting 1 billion streams, with more than 890 million so far.
