“The support has been amazing . I thought I would struggle to sell tickets after not fighting back home in so long and not being active, but this week everyone is jumping on board its brought the buzz right back. I haven’t even tried to push myself to sell tickets. For everyone that has bought a ticket I will be forever in their debt it means so much to me.”
