This is Saving Abels first USO tour. The band has been eager to travel overseas for quite some time and have made multiple appearances on bases stateside.
Avid supporters of the U.S. military, Saving Abel performed for troops in October 08 as part of MTVs “A Night for Vets: An MTV Concert for the BRAVE.” Performing alongside such USO veterans as Kid Rock and Ludacris, the concert called for elected officials to provide veterans with better health care, mental-health treatment, job opportunities, housing assistance and compensation for serving longer due to stop-loss orders.
Known for such songs as Addicted,” 18 Days, Drowning (Face Down), Saving Abel was formed in Corinth, Mississippi in 04.
