Freedom isn't free. However, enjoying the Tops in Blue's 2015 tour, "Freedom's Song," a celebration of the freedom we enjoy as Americans, is priceless ... literally.

Tops in Blue, the premier Air Force entertainment showcase, will take to the Homer J. Walker Civic Center stage - at 702 Watson Blvd. - for a free performance June 14 at 6 p.m. 

Doors open at 5:15 p.m., with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis. No food or drinks are allowed in the civic center.

Mick Szymanski, 78th Force Support Squadron director, said Tops in Blue gives the local community a glimpse of the enormous talent in the Air Force.

"Tops in Blue is one of the best family entertainment venues you could attend," he said. "Over the years, they've performed with legends such as Ed Sullivan and Bob Hope. 

"They've performed at Super Bowls, NASCAR and for world leaders," he added. "It reminds me how fortunate we are to have Airmen like these who have volunteered in a time of war not only to defend us, but also to boost morale for their fellow Airmen."

The 2015 tour features the sounds of Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Megan Trainor and others. 

It also showcases country music artists like Carrie Underwood, Andy Grammer, Randy Howser and the Eli Young Band.

No Tops in Blue show would be complete without the patriotic music that honors our nation and its heroes. 

Add the high energy precision choreography and dazzling visual impact Tops in Blue is known for and every member of the audience will be singing along and dancing in their seats.

Szymanski said he's sure everyone will enjoy the show.

"Bring the whole family," he said. "Who knows? You may be sitting with a future star of the show."

This year's tour will take Tops in Blue across the United States and to more than 20 countries, with close to 75 performances during a seven-month period, including shows for deployed military members in Southwest Asia.

Tops in Blue teams have been performing worldwide for more than 60 years.

Tops in Blue last performed in Warner Robins in January 2013.
