About this show

Let's Salute America is inspired by America's love of the Yellow Ribbon as a symbol of freedom, hope, homecomings and of course, Tony's number one recording of 1973, "Tie A Yellow Ribbon 'Round The Ole Oak Tree." It was number one for that year, became Orlando's theme song and grew into an American anthem of hope, homecoming, reunion and renewal. The yellow ribbon has welcomed home POWs from Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, the hostages from Iran and the troops from Desert Storm. Veterans are honored each Veterans Day, November 11, in Branson with the Tony Orlando Yellow Ribbon Salute to Veterans. Tony, one of America's enduring and beloved performers, has put together a powerful show that stands up for our country. It's a guaranteed crowd pleaser. The salute includes "Yellow Ribbon," a tribute to George M. Cohan's "Yankee Doodle Dandy," a rendition of Toby Keith's "American (Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue)," Neil Diamond's "America" and Ray Charles' "America The Beautiful." Tony also performs his other big hits such as "Candida," "Knock Three Times" and "Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose."
