Hope Beyond Thunderdome Tour 2016 Blogs:
Part 1 (BC, Alberta)
Years ago, Luisa performed for the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in a grueling show tour that included war-torn Bosnia, Sarajevo and later the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) in Israel and Egypt. The most requested song on both tours was WE DON’T NEED ANOTHER HERO (THUNDERDOME). Luisa realized THUNDERDOME was a metaphor of the state they were in at the time, and HOPE is what we need to give them. Luisa thinks back about the young military men she met. “They were like babies to me”, Marshall states. “They need our help”.
Luisa set off to raise funds and awareness of PTSD. Naming her tour Hope Beyond Thunderdome, she went on a cross Canada tour twice over to support the cause.
In this blog you’ll find part 1 of her journey. There are pictures, shout outs and comments. If you were at any of her shows during this tour, you will most likely find your picture here. 🙂
