We are about 5 weeks into our 2008 tour. It is a ten month trek across the country. Some of these dates are our Ridgeway & Johnson show for state fairs, some of them are our Living Illusions show for churches and large youth conventions.

Starting tomorrow in Knoxville, TN we kick off a 10 city Arena & auditorium tour with country singer Michael Peterson and the US Army Rock Band, the My Real Life Tour. The "My Real Life – Strong For America Tour," presented by the U.S. Army, is motivating people across the nation to explore new and exciting ways to build stronger communities.

We are in each city for four days, doing large assemblies at various high schools and radio & TV appearances. Saturday in each city is the big show...The Communa-Palooza takes place on Saturday afternoon in each city prior to the Community Celebration. We host a wide variety of youth attractions, interactive exhibits and local vendors as a gift to the community. And, it's all FREE! Saturday night is the Concert event featuring Michael Peterson, Ridgeway and Johnson, Colt Prather, The United States Army Field Band "Volunteers" and much more!

In Knoxville, this is at the Knoxville Civic Auditorium & Coliseum. On Friday morning for those in Knoxville, you can see us on WVLT w/Alison Hunt from 5:15–7AM.

P.S. I almost forgot to mention, Kristen Johnson will perform her Full View water Torture Cell, we will perform other large illusions and in select cities, we will perform our Jet Turbine illusion. One of the largest illusions in the world, only three others exist and our show is the only place in the western hemisphere where you can see this ominous illusion live.

All this week we have had some great media. We had an unfortunate setback as all the Knoxville schools were closed Thursday & Friday due to a flu outbreak. That meant we were not able to be in front of the 8,000 students that were scheduled for our assemblies. Not too worry, we started calling the radio & TV stations trying to get some leverage from our buy-outs. We added additional radio & TV segments. One of the radio segments was the largest station in Knoxville. We just happened to be there during their 'Call to the Front'...where they talk via Sat-phone to troops in Iraq and allow listeners to call in and talk live with the troops. That was an incredible experience...and it very moving and emotional to hear the callers share their love, support & prayers to our men and women overseas. Michael Peterson sang a song live on the air and over the Sat-phone. We did some tricks in studio as well as some mentalism over the airwaves. Two days ago we did the live at 5pm show...Kristen did a rope escape with the on air talent. They enjoyed it so much, they played the segment again yesterday. Of course, one member of our team is covering the media metrics, so we have some good foundation for the next go around of sponsors.



This morning we did an early live TV show here in Knoxville. We did three segments...you can view all three of them here:

Tomorrow is the big show here in Knoxville. We loaded in today. A great production company from Montana is on the road with us for the duration of the tour. We'll be posting pictures on our blog starting Sunday. Our photographer, Miles, just wrapped up a photo journaling session with the Joint Chiefs of Staff. We saw some of his work that he has done so far on this tour and it is amazing what he is coming up with.
