It's okay if you're still crying over the loss of ONE LIFE TO LIVE -- we are, too! But it's time to wipe away those tears and start celebrating, because Kassie DePaiva (Blair), Michael Easton (John), John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex), Melissa Archer (Natalie), Hillary B. Smith (Nora), and Trevor St. John (Victor) are headed out on a multi-city tour to see you! Via the "Loving Llanview" tour that brought you January's successful event, the group hits Cincinnati, OH, on Friday, June 22, Merrillville, IN, on Saturday, June 23, and Chicago, IL, on Sunday, June 24. And they can't wait to let the fun begin all over again!
"It's a party, and you get to reminisce," says Lavoisier of the events. "The fans help the actors take a trip down memory lane; it's nice. And it's going to be refreshing to see the fans' memorabilia that they bring, the photo albums and the memories that they help [us] re-spark."
Adds Archer: "It's been nice to be able to go into other towns where there are people who maybe weren't able to travel to see us before, and maybe some who have done it and want to do it again. It gives the fans the chance to say goodbye to the people that they loved from OLTL, and it gives a chance for us to reconnect with the fans again, and with each other."
But Lavoiser warns that if the events are as popular as the sessions held in January, you'd better hurry and buy your tickets right away! "For the last event, you could go online to buy your ticket for the autograph session, and it was so in demand, people were re-selling their tickets on E-bay for a higher amount to other people. There was scalping going on!" he says with a laugh. "So anything that people want, they need to buy immediately, because most likely, all of the autograph signings are going to sell out."
