Free show will honor 4th BCT soldiers

The 2010 Army Soldier Show is dedicated to the Soldiers of the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division at Fort Carson who recently returned from a year-long deployment to Afghanistan.

Social media is the theme of this year's "Soldier Show 27.0". It features a cast and crew of active-duty Soldiers from duty stations around the world. The show, which is "by Soldiers, for Soldiers," is open to the general public.

The Army Soldier Show is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Pikes Peak Center. Free tickets are available from the Fort Carson Information, Tickets and Registration Office at the Outdoor Recreation Complex on Specker Avenue, the Colorado Springs World Arena box office or the Pikes Peak Center.

"There's some great historical content with Irving Berlin," Soldier Show Production Director Victor Hurtado explained. "We have much better video technology this year with moving projectors. We're going to be able to use that during the show for a lot longer lengths of time, so we have voiceovers with Irving Berlin and some of his work."

The show will open with Disturbed's heavy metal anthem "Indestructible," which was written to inspire Soldiers headed for battle.

While there is no admission charge, tickets are required.
