“The rider list is still unconfirmed but looking amazing!” Tim Bieber, Executive Producer of the series, “I personally brought the Drop In Bus out of retirement on a farm in Alberta and drove it to Vancouver to get ready for the ambitious tour. We don’t expect it to make it again, as always. We just couldn’t replace her, she’s part of the Crew! This will be the best tour yet!” The goals behind this season’s tour is to tie in as much of an online experience through www.rip.tv as possible while the tour is happening so fans around the world can check in on the happenings as they happen. Through GPS mapping Drop In Fans will be able to locate the bus wherever it is.
