EAA AIRVENTURE 2011 WELCOMES REO SPEEDWAGON FOR OPENING DAY CONCERT
After a full opening day of flying on Monday, July 25, at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011, the excitement continues into the evening as the legendary rock band REO Speedwagon performs its classic hits in concert, courtesy of Ford Motor Company.
The performance, free of charge to all AirVenture guests that day, will be held adjacent to the Ford Motor Company Hangar immediately following the afternoon air show.
The opening day concert at EAA AirVenture, along with Ford Motor Company’s support of the nightly Fly-In Theater, is among the experiences embraced by Ford and EAA to enhance the annual EAA AirVenture convention. Ford will again construct a unique one-of-a-kind vehicle for the Gathering of Eagles fundraiser during AirVenture, plus support a raffle vehicle. These annual actions have generated more than $1.5 million for Young Eagles. Ford also offers exclusive discounts on Ford Motor Company vehicles for EAA members.
Advance purchase admission tickets and camping for AirVenture 2011 are now available at a discounted rate at www.airventure.org/tickets.
