As part of Ozark Amphitheater’s continuing effort to support their community it is offering free tickets to Military and Emergency Services Personnel to see country superstar Aaron Tippin on September 23rd. The concert will be a night of entertainment and used as an outreach to honor and celebrate our veterans, enlisted men and women of our U.S. military and emergency responders.
Known as the “hardest working man in country music,” Aaron Tippin is a regular supporter of our military and tours with the USO. His debut single, “You’ve Got To Stand For Something” became a popular anthem for American soldiers fighting in the Gulf War. Tippin has enjoyed a successful 25-year career in country music recording nine studio albums with five gold and one platinum among them and scores of big hits such as “Kiss This”, “Workin’ Man’s Ph.D” and “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong with the Radio.”
Members of the military and first responders with valid ID qualify for free tickets. Two tickets per ID. Call the Ticket Sales Office at 573-346-0000 for more details or buy tickets online at www.ozarksamp.com
