The Toy Machine tour was cancelled do to some serious and unpreventable circumstances. Ed Templeton bruised his heel severely at SCJ, then on tour he knocked his head pretty bad and spent a couple nights in the hospital. Doctor says that chronic and painful headaches are expected for weeks. Brian Anderson had a family emergency, his father passed away. Elissa Steamer was having some leg problems and left the tour to see her doctor. Filmer photographer Dave Hoang’s girlfriend of several years was killed in a car accident. Due to the circumstances and rather than having a team of bummed out fellows, Ed decided to cancel the last 4 stops of the tour. Time will heal and they will be ready to rock twice as hard next year.
Understanding and feeling their plight, the Foundation team Kris Markovich, Daniel Shimizu, Justin Roy and Charlie Thomas rallied together and decided to help out and finished 3 of the 4 remaining demos. Despite the black cloud, hundreds of kiddies still got their stoke on!
