HOPE BEYOND THUNDERDOME TOUR 2016 – Canadian Veteran PTSD Awareness Tour

0

Luisa’s Canada-wide tour is kicking off in March on Vancouver Island and finishing off in St. John’s, Newfoundland in June. Marshall wanted to add meaning to her tour so she chose her passion concerning the PTSD concerns with the Canadian Military and Firemen.

Luisa & Ellen.

Luisa Marshall titled the tour “HOPE BEYOND THUNDERDOME”.  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 would like to raise awareness and in her own little way, in part, raise funds at the same time for Veteran PTSD issues. Luisa has committed $5 of each ticket go directly to the Veterans Transition Network (Click here for their website). They do fantastic work with their Veterans Transitions Program (Click here to view their video).

Luisa also found out Firemen are at risk for PTSD because they are first responders to some of the most horrific car crashes and fires.   She would like to partner with any PTSD group in Canada. 

Luisa Marshall has appeared on Oprah twice and recently made a special appearance on the ELLEN DeGeneres show on Oct 9/2015 to a 25-second standing ovation.  Everybody thought she was the real TINA TURNER alongside all the other stars. (Click here for the full story)
