While on tour in support of their breakout platinum-selling album “Sinner,” which was reissued this month in a 2-disc deluxe edition format, Texas rockers Drowning Pool made a stop at Nellis Air Force Base in the Mojave Wasteland of Nevada to meet and greet active military and veterans over Veteran’s Day weekend.In a band statement, the band said, “It’s always a pleasure for us to have the opportunity to support our troops. We’ve been fortunate this year on our Sinner ‘Unlucky 13th Anniversary’ tour to hit a few bases across the county. Our recent visit to Nellis Air Force Base has definitely been one of the highlights. Such a great group of people that organized the visit, and like always, it was such an honor for us to sign and take pictures in support of our air man and their families. We appreciate the organizers at Nellis AFB for giving us the full tour! Besides our meet & greet/signing, we had the amazing opportunity to watch the Thunderbirds air show. Amazing! Insanely talented pilots. We look forward to future base visits and our continued support of our troops.”
Lt. Jonathon Lee and Sgt. Anthony Caldwell commented on the visit before the band arrived, stating, “I think it’s awesome of them to help us out and show their support for the military, and I can’t wait to meet them, I think they are stand up guys.” Caldwell also adds, “I’m here to see Drowning Pool and I think it’s amazing that they are out here at Nellis AFB, pretty cool that they are supporting the troops.”
Drowning Pool‘s tour will hit Texas in December, with two dates in Houston – at BFE Rock Club on Friday, Dec. 5, the 18th Street Pier Bar & Grill on Saturday, Dec. 6. The band will play a College Station date at Grand Stafford Theater on Sunday night and will return home to Dallas for a New Year’s Eve date at South Side Ballroom alongside rockers Hellyeah.
