True to his word, Taylor is traveling the country in an RV, regularly uploading videos chronicling his journey and meeting thousands of fans. And, perhaps not surprising, the tour has been a huge success. It’s a pretty exciting thing to see his idea come into fruition and also to see him stick to his guns about keeping the event free. The first date kicked off in Philadelphia at a bowling alley with over 1,000 fans in attendance and was eventually shut down by the cops.
I have to also give Taylor credit for keeping calm under pressure. If you are following his videos you’ll see thousands of girls are chasing after his friends, following his RV and generally causing mass chaos wherever they wind up. I think he has extremely good intentions with the tour, and I would imagine he is as shocked as anyone by the massive turnouts his meet and greets have been bringing. If nothing else this tour is a testament to how huge the boys from Vine and Magcon have become. Somehow, and I have no idea how, Taylor has managed to secure venues, security and a large amount of space for these meet and greets. This is pretty remarkable when I felt like he was going to have hold these in Target parking lots for a while.
I’ve had a lot of people ask me where he will be next, and this is what we know for next week:
Cincinnati, Ohio will be on Monday the 13th, followed by Cleveland and Louisville, Kentucky (probably by the end of the week). The easiest way to keep track of Taylor’s dates is to follow his Twitter and subscribe for up-to-the-minute updates. The kid is doing a really great thing with this tour so if you meet him be sure to tell him thanks and also be as respectful as possible. (Like, if he says to move so he can back his RV out–mOVE)
Also, I’ve seen that there will be merch at the dates so bring some extra cash, according to Taylor they help pay for hotels and gas. You can pick up some posters, tshirts and sweatshirts (some of which have been dyed by the man himself~) If you have any questions or experiences you’d like to share, comment in the box below! I’d love to hear more from you guys!
