Bubba Sparxxx is the latest rapper recruited to perform for United States troops stationed overseas.
Sparxxx will perform May 11 at Kaiserslautern, Germany’s Rhine Ordnance Barracks as part of a United Service Organizations show, while fellow rapper Master P will appear with country singer Lee Ann Womack June 14 at Caserma Ederle in Vicenza, Italy.
The performances are part of a group of scheduled concerts featuring American artists, according to Stars and Stripes’ European edition.
While some shows are scheduled during welcome home ceremonies for service members returning from downrange, all military identification cardholders and individuals with access to U.S. military installations are welcome to attend, said Heather MacTavish, touring entertainment program manager for Installation Management Agency-Europe.
The concert series kicks off May 3 with a performance from ’70s funk group War, who will take the stage at Sullivan Barracks in Mannheim, Germany, to welcome home the 5th Signal Command.
Alternative rock group Lit will play Giebelstadt Army Airfield, just outside Würzburg, Germany, on May 19.
Plans for a live radio broadcast of the concerts are also in the works, said MacTavish. All shows will be free.
Master P also performed in March in Vilseck, Germany, for returning troops.
Sparxxx will be playing for European Command personnel for the first time.
