Since Sean likes country music so much, I wonder if he would want the Dixie Chicks to perform.

2006 Hannity Freedom Concert
With Country Music’s Biggest Stars

It's here! The most exciting Hannity Freedom Concert yet. It will take place on Friday, July 21 at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey.

Featuring country music legend Hank Williams, Jr., the Freedom Concert will honor our men and women in uniform and benefit the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund for the children of our military heroes who have been killed or permanently disabled in service to our country.

Hank, Jr. will be joined by Lee Greenwood – whose song “God Bless the USA” is considered one of the most recognizable patriotic songs ever written – and country music star and “2006 Top Female Vocalist of the Year” nominee Sara Evans. Sara performed at the first Freedom Concert in 2003, and is returning by popular demand to sing her platinum-selling hits.

Sean Hannity will again broadcast his radio show live from the Freedom Concert and we will be joined by injured and recuperating military heroes (and their families) from our military medical institutions. We hope you will join us in treating them to a hero’s welcome as we thank them for their bravery and service to our country.

It's interesting you mention that. I emailed Sean a suggestion that in the future he have a Freedom Concert here in Colorado at the Red Rocks Ampitheater just south of Golden. This site is one of the more spectacular venues for a concert anywhere in the USA.

Sounds like a great line-up for a fabulous event! Good on Sean's and Ollie's staffs for pulling this together again this year, but with twice the punch!

Thanks! I got the same letter a few weeks ago and ordered two tickets immediately over the phone. I have to run now, but will check that phone # and give them a call again later today to see where the tix are. I seem to recall that the rep. said the tix would take a few weeks to arrive. She said the tix will arrive via FedEx, and I'll have to sign for them. No FedEx deliveries nor notes here yet...

I met Ollie North when he came to my place of employment to film one of his War Stories segments--I asked him to sign a picture for my friend's husband in Iraq--he was kind, gracious and a real gentleman!

Just wanted to share...

Since you all seem to have been to the concert can you give me a little info? I didn't see any details on Sean's or FreedomAliance's web sites. I was thinking of driving up from Washington D.C. for a day trip. Do you know, roughly:

1) When does the concert start?
2) When does it end?
3) What's going on before the concert, the amusement park activities?
4) Do each of the three guest stars play for a while or is it just a couple of songs each? Last Sara Evans concert I went to was fantastic. She probably played 15 - 20 songs...
5) Anywhere that you know of where I can get more info?

Thanks in advance

I think I can help you out a little.

The concert usually begins about 7 PM.

It ends around 10:00-11:00 followed by fireworks.

Sean does his radio show live from Great Adventure from 3:00-6:00 PM. I am not sure if the radio show will be held inside this year or not.

If inside they have to limit the number of people watching at one time. Last year they limited the amount of time to around 45 minute blocks.

If outside get there early to get a good seat.

Each artist gets a block of time to preform usually around 5 songs each.

The concert is still going on when Hannity & Colmes comes on, so Sean does a guest segment on the show, although someone else usually hosts for Sean that day.

Try wabcradio.com or freedomalliance.org for further information.

BTW the Great One, Curtis Sliwa will be in attendence. With luck Andrew Wilcow will be doing the radio show before Seans.

Thanks mware. Just the info that I was looking for. It looks like it will be a great time. And a very late drive back...

I got my tickets on-line and printed them on the spot, f For anyone worried about tickets not arriving on time this seems to be the easiest thing to do.

What's a " Sean Hannity " ???

and a " Freedom Concert " ???

Is this something New??

I heard that something like 15-20,000 People are suppose to show up for this??

You mean like the 15-20,000 of people who came to Counter-Protest against the LIBBIES when they had their Big
"END THE WAR NOW" A.N.S.W.E.R. Rally in NYC a few months ago???

Naaahhhhh

Couldn't be the same thing or same people...
cause I would know...

ME and the other 14 FRIENDS of mine , and a few PW's ...who all took the day off from work figuring we'd come down and add out little numbers to the MASSIVE CROWD we'd "heard" was going to be down there to show the MEDIA and PRESS that there ARE AMERICANS out there who will STAND UP to their Traitors to This Great Nation!! and TRAITORS to Our Brave Military serving Abroad and domestically!!

So maybe there will only be about 30 or 40 people at this thing anyhow? right? and the Numbers they "talk" about are just played up??

Hey Coop!

Don't thank WABC's "staff"--they run it like a Turkey Shoot-
And Ollie's too Busy being Shuffled from place to person to place.

Thank the FREEDOM ALLIANCE "STAFF"--who are the work horses of the whole she-bang there! and the poor WABC "interns" who actually get stuck too doing the Crap Jobs!

It's like any BIG organization--the "Big Wigs" do the planning over Rum-Tardies-and then during the whole thing stand around with their arms folded watching it and patting themselevs on the back and taking all the credit! While the Interns and State troopers do all the work! hahahaha

remeber--it is those SUPPORT the TROOPS! and Those who Come that Make the Show!!

Just GO EARLY! and have fun!

Hey Coop? and Nutmeg, M & N and ajoly?

Are you folks going to the EAST Coast Concert?

I have been way behind cause of the posters/banners I had been doing for various rallies and clubs- like the Slimes one and the Concert too--so I apologize I haven't had time to come HERE and check with all you great Freepers on WHO will be there.

Besides work REALLY...Reallllly! ********* and ******-well; you all know what it's like NOT being a libbie! cause we have to WORK for a living!!! and HAVING to "work for a living" and try to even get Some free time off to do things is impossible somethimes!!! Especially if your job is a 12 hour a day stinker like mine has grown into since I got back to work again!

But--If I have any extra T-Shirts that I have been making for the Concert for the last ones and this ones--if any of you are going to the east Coast one and would like a T-Shirt ( I should have 1-3 left and I would rather give them to a FREEPER than anyone else cause out of anyone-YOU folks deserve it for all YOUR Great work!--and the 1-3 other FREEPERS Here who are not going I already do have yours safely put away so don't worry there old friend and others!!) Let me know by this Wednesday.

They look like this:

and:

I am only asking YOU few here since at least You folks seemed really interested and into it just by even posting a thread on it! ( I use to be posting threads on some OTHER "conservative" websites!-but since no-one at those sites even ANSWERED the Threads--well..too late for them! Dips!)

it is just by Wednesday- I will only have enough time to possibly put 1-3 others' Names on them and that's all.

So let me know folks--It will be easy to find me--I will be with a whole group of MARK LEVIN fans down there too wearing our shirts!

Have a Great Night-Stay int he battle!! and watch out for the HEAT WAVE Tomorrow! I'll be out in it "Sweating to the Oldies!" as they say!

Looking forward to seeing you again on Friday! I hope the weather holds out so Sean can do his live WABC broadcast outside, as in previous years (except for last year of course). I checked the weather for Jackson, NJ for Friday... looks like the same 'ol story: hot, humid and chance of rain and T-storms. Grrr!

I'll try to check in with you again before we head down on Friday morning... I'll be offline most of tomorrow, but back on (I hope) Thursday night for awhile.

Had a great time. Drove up from DC in the morning. Got home half an hour ago.

Lee Greenwood worked with recorded backup in a very short set to open the evening at about 6:45. He finished with God Bless the USA and the for first time the song made me cry.

Sara Evans followed with a very nice set, including "You'll Always Be My Baby." This song is on her recent album Real Fine Place.

Hank Jr. was amazing. I've not heard that much of his stuff. His set gave us a good tour through his country rock, his influences from other rock artists, and his musical heritage with several great versions of Hank Sr songs.

All, including Hannity, closed the evening with "Family Tradition." It was a great time for me. And, I got my copy of Godless autographed and had my picture taken with Ann Coulter. That can make any day special.

Just got back to friend's house who's putting me up for a couple of days so I only had to pay airfare.

WOW! Words cannot begin to describe how great this was.

I got to shake Ollie North's hand! And got to meet Sean. My friend's husband was one of the behind the scenes people for the event.

I always get choked up when I hear "God Bless the USA"

I told Sean where I was from and that I was proud to say we still voted for both the current president and his dad and Dole in 96 in Park Ridge.

He laughed when I said I didn't want to say what town I lived in after I said it. And he didn't blame me.
