AEG Live have been huge supporters of the charity and have donated thousands of tickets to Tickets For Troops since conception.
Rob Hallett, AEG Live’s President of International Touring has recently been appointed to Tickets For Troops’ advisory board and said "It is an honour and a privilege to be invited to join a board of such distinguished individuals in order to help, in a small way. I am delighted to be able to play a part in putting smiles on the faces of the brave servicemen and women, who put their lives on the line every day for our country and who ensure that we and our families can sleep safely at night. To be able to provide opportunities for them to enjoy music events with their friends and families is a small acknowledgement of the sacrifices they make."
Chairman of Tickets For Troops Lord Marland said "Rob Hallett has been a generous supporter of Tickets For Troops over the last few years and it is with great delight that he has agreed to come on board. He has provided the charity with a tremendous amount of tickets and is this year, yet again, supporting the troops with events for around the country.”
The family-friendly summer music extravaganza is designed to suit music fans of all ages allowing troops to bring their friends and families to all the events.
