Emmy Award-nominated actor and producer John Stamos is set to host the 37th annual edition of A CAPITOL FOURTH, broadcast live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.

The all-star musical and fireworks extravaganza will kick off the country’s 241st birthday with performances by The Blues Brothers; The Beach Boys; the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of conductor Jack Everly; and more.

The concert will feature a tribute to our men and women in uniform by country music star and Grammy-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry Trace Adkins. The inspiring moment will be dedicated to our troops, our veterans and all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our freedom.

Also participating in the event will be the Choral Arts Society of Washington; the U.S. Army Herald Trumpets; the U.S. Army Ceremonial Band; members of the Armed Forces carrying the state and territorial flags; and the Armed Forces Color Guard provided by the Military District of Washington, D.C.
