This is pretty awesome.

They could easily blast a few shows in one day if they wanted to. Especially in the DC area.

Christian Wagner 06/05/12 08:47 AM

Holy crap. Good luck guys.

Congrats to whoever routed this haha. Playing Pensacola is smart, that's the only city in Florida you can really play that isn't very far south and still headin west.

Kudos to there booking agent, on a side note why isn't Red Bull sponsoring this!

Anchorage and Honolulu... going to be an expensive tour.

Frenizzle 06/05/12 03:26 PM

I would advise them to spend a week in Hawaii doing nothing after their final show.
