Bad news for hip-hop fans! After six consecutive ‘How the Grouch Stole Christmas’ tours, there is not going to be another one. At least not until next year anyway. Grouch, for many reasons, has called off the yearly tradition this year. Don’t fret though, you could get him to perform a show in your living room.
That’s right, one of the reasons the annual tour has been called off is for Grouch to focus on his upcoming triple album project with Eligh, entitled The Tortoise & The Crow. The pair have started a Kickstarter project to help fund the album with some very exclusive rewards for funders. These include everything from updates and merchandise to dinner with G&E and private shows. These rewards are now available to gift to people too so you can get the hip-hop head in your family the perfect gift, whatever your budget.
If you want to help Grouch & Eligh with their upcoming project their Kickstarter page can be found here. Full details of how to gift the rewards are available there too. What’s more, you can have a warm fuzzy feeling inside you knowing that you have given two gifts with your pledge. One to Grouch and Eligh and one to the recipient of your gift.
P.S. If anyone is feeling generous, I wouldn’t mind the Maui Waterfall Adventure.
