Our audiences are some of the most appreciative anywhere in the world, and our tours are unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experiences. This application helps us gather your contact information, entertainment genre/style as well as your ability to tour given our needs and limitations. But before you dive in, make sure you have the following ready, because you’ll need it all to complete and submit your application to us:
We realize this process is a bit cumbersome, but in order to be considered to tour with us, NO STEPS may be skipped or your application will be denied. If you are approved in our system, there is no guarantee you’ll go on tour, as we book acts based on requests we receive from the combatant commanders and the troops. Your application will stay active in our system for 12 months from the time of your last tour, and we’ll contact you if we have an opening that fits your genre.
From time to time, it may become necessary for us to suspend application submissions via this site due to the quantity of requests from downrange. Please check the site for application submission status, as we will reopen the application when that balances out.
Thank you again for your interest in Armed Forces Entertainment.
