LENN: All right, I don't know who scheduled this, but this is not the day to do this because it's April 1st and I want to be very clear. This is not an April Fool -- because when I tell you what the announcement is, you are going to go, uh-huh, sure. And tomorrow may be too late for me to verify. Nope, now it's April 2nd and I can tell you that it is no joke. But we have an announcement.
Last -- in fact, let me bring -- can we bring Brad up, please? Is Brad on the phone? Brad?
PELO: I'm with you, Glenn. How are you?
GLENN: Very good.
PELO: Great to be with you.
GLENN: You are the -- what are you? The senior executive producer?
PELO: That's what they call me.
GLENN: Of America's Freedom Foundation and the Stadium of Fire.
PELO: The Stadium of Fire specifically, yes.
GLENN: You asked me last year if I would host the Stadium of Fire. It is the largest stadium fireworks show in the country.
GLENN: And it is -- I have never seen anything like it. I have never been that close to fireworks, I have -- I've never seen anything like it. It is absolutely amazing, and it's on July 4th in Provo, Utah at the BYU stadium.
PELO: That's right. And it's taken 28 years to make the fireworks that close but they're there.
GLENN: I thought there were times that I was going to be set on fire. I really did. And there were a lot of people in the stadium that probably was hoping for that, but -- and fortunately didn't happen. So you asked me again to host it this year, which I'm just thrilled and honored to be a part of it. Last year you had Brooks and Dunn performing, correct? Was that --
PELO: That is right, yeah, Brooks and Dunn.
GLENN: Brooks and Dunn.
PELO: Great show.
GLENN: This year, and we're going to announce right now who is coming to the Stadium of Fire. Tickets -- well, the last time that this individual did a show, the performance last month had 72,000 seats at Reliant Stadium in Houston and it was sold out in a couple of minutes. This year you probably have the hardest ticket to get. You now have how many seats available for this particular performer? How many seats?
PELO: Well, we're going to try and make maybe up to 50,000. Right now we can verify 48,000 seats that we'll have available.
GLENN: Okay. And the tickets go on sail Friday?
PELO: Friday at 5:00.
GLENN: And the performer at the Stadium of Fire this year is Miley Cyrus. She plays Hannah Montana on -- I don't need to tell you. If you know who she is, then you are going, oh, my gosh. And if you know who she is, it's because you know your children are going to say, "Oh, my gosh" and you're going to have to get tickets and they sell out within a couple of minutes. So that's who's going to be performing on Fourth of July at the Stadium of Fire.
You also have the Blue Man Group that are performing, and they're fantastic. And then me. So --
PELO: And you are the best part, Glenn.
GLENN: (Laughing). Yeah. Well, actually, you know what? It's really cool. Because of Fourth of July it is -- I have been to the Fourth of July fireworks at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., I've seen the fireworks in Philadelphia, I've seen them in New York, I've seen them in Boston. I have never seen fireworks like this before. And more importantly, I have never been in a place that is not afraid to say, man, it's great to be in America and it's great to be an American and this is what it's all about. And actually the theme this year is what, Brad?
PELO: I am an American.
GLENN: It doesn't go any deeper than that. "I am an American." And do you want to reveal at all anything that you're planning?
PELO: Well, let me say this, and this is really an important element to our show and that is that our event, Stadium of Fire, is broadcast to the military throughout the world, at all the military bases, ships at sea. This is our sixth year having been invited to be a part of every military men and women's Independence Day celebration, and it's very special to us because we're honoring not just the sacrifices of our forefathers who on July 4th put it on the line but we're honoring the sacrifice and the men and women who are doing it for us every single day, and we bring them in via satellite, they are watching us live, we're actually watching them live. We have uplinks around the world, we have an opportunity to talk to them, perform for them and it just brings a special moment into the stadium.
GLENN: It is the most spine-tingling American thing I have ever seen or been a part of. It is absolutely amazing and so proud to be a part of it again, Brad. And again the Miley Cyrus tickets for the Stadium of Fire, this is July 4th, Provo, Utah. They go on sale this Friday. They will be sold out quickly.

PELO: Pleasure to be with you, Glenn.
GLENN: Thank you so much. You should go, Stu.
STU: Tomorrow we find out -- obviously just a prank. It's April Fool's. Why is Miley Cyrus going to appear somewhere with you? That's crazy.
GLENN: Glenn Beck, Miley Cyrus and the Blue Man Group. Come on.
STU: You hosted this last year. It was a huge event. I've never seen you come back from something that impressed.
GLENN: I've never been that impressed. I've never, ever been that impressed. And it is -- it sits right in the canyon. It sits right by the mountains and so you're in this bowl, you know, where they play football and you're in the stadium and the mountains are all around you and then the fireworks kick off at the end after this amazing concert. Last year it was Brooks and Dunn. Then the fireworks kick off and I'm telling you, I mean, you can ask Adam. Because he was standing backstage with me. We actually had to stand underneath the rigging of the stage because the stuff was coming down on top of us. It's -- the fireworks are so close and so amazing and they go on -- they did, I think it was -- I don't want to quote the number. I think it was like 10 minutes, maybe 13 minutes and I said, this is amazing. And he said, yeah, but now they really kick in. I said, what? He said, yeah, this is the first half of the fireworks. The second half Disney paid for. And he said, so now the Disney part kicks in. And it was -- I mean, it was nonstop. It was incredible.
STU: You are the guy, you used to go -- you go to all the big cities' fireworks and everything else. And New York, I remember you --
GLENN: Never seen anything like this.
STU: That's amazing.
