You’re kicking off the New Year by going on tour. How are you feeling ahead of it?

I’m feeling very excited for the tour because I’ve come up with so many fun and unique ideas. It’s been awesome seeing them all come to life. Going out on the road also gives me the opportunity engage with my fans and I can’t wait to see everyone!

For anyone who’s yet to buy their tickets, why should they come to see the show?

They should come to see the show to be able to interact with me, Lee and my friends and family. It will also give them the chance to come to have pizza with me, Lee and other guests. There’s going to be so much crazy stuff happening, you might even see myself or Lee getting gunged!

I’m looking forward to visiting ALL the cities! My schedule is pretty busy but I’m hoping to see a few sights in each city so if anyone has any recommendations of what I should see let me know.
