Tops in Blue Visits Minot

Posted: Updated:

A premier Air Force entertainment showcase is making a stop in Minot. Tops in Blue is gearing up for their performance at the Municipal Auditorium Friday night.

Their tour bus is parked outside Minot's Municipal Auditorium as Tops in Blue and their volunteers unload their trucks and begin to set up for Friday's show.

"Everything that you see, we put together. So, it's self contained, everything is in house," says Charles Cooper a Tops in Blue vocalist.

Tops in Blue is comprised of all active duty U.S. Air Force members selected to perform in the special unit for a nine-month period.

"We're a family and you know we can't do any of this by ourselves. We have to work together and we have to be a team and that's what the Air Force is all about is having that family, that sense of community," says Amanda Bills a Tops in Blue vocalist.

Throughout the tour, Tops in Blue performs around the globe for Air Force service members, their families and those deployed across the country.

"We try to cover all of the different interests and cover themes from oldies to things that are on the radios today because we really want our show to have a little bit of something for everyone. That's what we're trying to do, to bring some type of joy to everyone," says Bills.

"We do so much, you know, work every day on our jobs with our families and just being a human is hard enough. To be able to come in and be able to just take your mind away from everything for one hour and 45 minutes is just great," says Cooper.

While this is only the start of their season, Tops in Blue is excited about this year's tour celebrating 60 years of tradition.

Admission to Tops in Blue is free to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the show starting at 7 p.m.
