The Finnish Defence Forces’ Summer Tour

back

The Finnish Defence Forces’ summer tour invites you to have a great time in twelve locations all over Finland in 2022!

The tour will include music for everyone – from blues to pop and from rock to soul! The Air Force Big Band plays the night’s first chords at 18 o’clock with Heikki Silvennoinen as their soloist. Silvennoinen is known for his blues guitarist and singer career in many bands since the 70’s, as well as his role in the 90’s Finnish hit show ”Kummeli”. The night continues with a performance from a military band and the trio ”Souls of Women” by Emilia Vihanto, Iina Mutikainen and Klaara Koivunen at 19 o’clock. The trio brings an electrifying show ranging from the classics of soul music to the biggest hits of today: “It’s Raining Men” by the Weather Girls and “Think” from Aretha Franklin celebrate strong female artists and Bon Jovi medley as well as The Weeknd’s hit “Blinding Lights” energizes the audience. The night ends with The Conscript Band of the Finnish Defence Forces’ Show Band playing at 20 o’clock. Starring around twenty conscripts, the show band will set the summer night on fire by playing the biggest pop and rap hits of today. 

In addition to the musical shows you can get a peek of modern military service by local divisions’ gear exhibits and action shows at the events.
