When reached for comment on this stunning development, 13-year-old-me had this to say:
"ANF45g&OKNE"FON !N!O#BJ HOLY SHIT! eFN'i3n'r8h[0B@*$"
In response, present day-me conquered wholeheartedly with this statement.
Check out the tour flyer. It's a picture of Eddie ripping his own heart out of his chest because HELL YES.
