Stars & Stripes Explosion
July 4, 2014
Multiple live performances on oceanfront stages will attract thousands of visitors and residents of Virginia Beach to a “star-spangled” salute on July 4th.  

The city's exciting Stars & Stripes Explosion will offer something for everyone – Patriotic and Classical to Motown, and tributes dedicated to Bruce Springsteen, British Rock and Pop from the 60’s and 70’s, Billy Joel, and Elton John.

From 8:00pm-9:30pm, a stage erected right on the beach at 20th Street will become the focal point for performances featuring “Symphonic Springsteen” (“Bruce in the USA” tribute band) with Symphonicity (the symphony orchestra of Virginia Beach), and the Virginia Beach Chorale.  Symphonicity’s concert will feature patriotic, Broadway, and classical selections.  “Symphonic Springsteen” will include “Born in the USA” and “American Land.”  “Bruce in the USA” tribute band numbers like “Dancing in the Dark,” “Born to Run,” and “Pink Cadillac” will celebrate the musical genius of Bruce Springsteen.  “Bruce in the USA” is much more than just another tribute.  This high-energy musical experience is a note-perfect and visually-accurate recreation of a Bruce Springsteen & The E. St. Band show.

The show will segue into a spectacular fireworks show at 9:30pm that promises to explode over the ocean in a burst of colors and patterns! 

Chester B’s Motown Tribute Show will fill the 17th Street Park stage with the smooth sounds of R&B from 8:00pm-10:30pm.

The English Channel will take center stage at the 24th Street Park from 8:00pm-10:45pm.  Formed in 2001, The English Channel authentically recreates British rock and pop from the mid ‘60’s to the mid ‘70’s.  Their program includes music by the Rolling Stones, The Dave Clark 5, The Kinks, The Hollies, Petula Clark, The Who, Dusty Springfield, Moody Blues, The Animals, The Zombies, The Yardbirds, Herman’s Hermits and many others. The English Channel represents the second “British Invasion” of America!

Tribute bands playing the music of Billy Joel and Elton John will take over the 31st Street stage from 8:00pm-10:30pm.  “52nd Street” perfectly recreates the music of Billy Joel, while “Captain Fantastic’s” tribute to Elton John will have the audience dancing in the park.

All concerts are free and open to the public.
