UPDATE (March 8): As you may have read in recent news reports, the scheduled jamboree performers have chosen not to attend the 2013 National Scout Jamboree.
Here’s the BSA’s statement: “We appreciate everyone’s right to express an opinion, including these performers’ decision not to perform at the Jamboree. We remain focused on delivering a great Jamboree program for our Scouts. While the Jamboree experience is enhanced by the concerts, they are supplements to a program centered on adventure, as young people build lifelong friendships. We are reviewing the content of our stadium shows, but our focus remains on the broader issue of delivering a great Jamboree program for our Scouts.”
I’ll post more updates about the jamboree stadium shows as I get them.
Below is the original post in which I announced who would be performing:
Don’t believe that Train and Carly Rae Jepsen are actually performing at the 2013 National Scout Jamboree?
You don’t have to take my word for it any more. Now you can hear it straight from the performers’ mouths.
Below, check out short video clips of Train, the closing show headliner, and Carly Rae Jepsen, the opening show headliner, inviting Scouts to hear them live at July’s big event at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia.
The musicians will perform at the stadium, the area known as the arena at past jamborees. And it’s just one more reason to register for the jamboree right now.
