“Kenny Loggins is a sensational fit for the opening-night concert at Oshkosh since his music is well-known and loved by multiple generations of fans,” Jim DiMatteo, EAA’s vice president of AirVenture features and attractions, said in a news release. “He brings the energy and enthusiasm that complements the full week of aviation excitement that will be featured at EAA AirVenture.”
Over the past four decades, Loggins has recorded a string of hit songs and been featured on movie soundtracks such as "Footloose," "Top Gun" and "Caddyshack."
The concert is included in AirVenture admission.
