With that being said, you already know he was ready to get back on stage and start touring again after having to hold off due to the heat of the pandemic last year.
After initially kicking off back on February 7th, 2020, and having to put a long pause until gearing back up again this year, the “What You See Is What You Get” Tour has finally come to a close.
He left a long, heart-felt message on Instagram to all his fans:
“Well, we made it. The “What You See Is What You Get” tour is finally completed after 2+ years of setbacks. This was the funnest, scariest, most rewarding, most stressful musical experience of my life and I’d do it all over again tomorrow.
Firstly, I’d like to thank every single fan who spent their hard earned money, waited all this time, through all the bullshit, who still came out and filled those seats up every night. You are the reason we get to do things like this and I hope we came close to putting on the show you deserve.
Secondly, my team. Band, Crew, management, agents, bus drivers, truck drivers, venue staff, catering, local stage crew, label folks, and sponsors. You know who you are if you’re reading this, thank you. I know how hard each of you worked and how much you all sacrificed to make these shows happen every night and that is something I will never forget.
Last and certainly not least my beautiful wife Nicole, and my friends and family. I love you all tremendously. Thank you all for being there for me when I was feeling down or needed to vent and for being there to take shots when we made it through. I hope we take a lot more.
This tour finally closes the long strange chapter of my last album. I’m taking a few weeks off and then we’re putting the finishing touches on LC3. Until then, hope y’all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See y’all soon!”
