Help TOPE Tour Europe This Summer!

$1,190 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 35 people in 19 months

Recently I was approached with an amazing opportunity to tour Europe this summer for three weeks with some well-known Underground Hip-Hop acts. I can't fully announce everyone involved until we finalize all the details but I can say that there are 17 dates booked across 9 different countries. After talking it over with some close friends and peers I've decided to go for it! Not only has touring Europe always been a dream, but a personal goal of mine has always been playing a show in Paris and lo and behold our first date is scheduled for Paris, France - with 3 more shows following in France.

As some of you know 2017 marks the 10th year of me releasing music independently(sheesh I'm old), starting out in 2007 with the Living Proof - Roots To Branches album with my close friend Jim. Since 2007 I released 15 independent hip-hop projects, including all my solo work plus the TxE and Living Proof albums. Most of those projects I released for FREE.99 and paid for by working a full-time job while I was in Portland. In that time I've been truly, truly blessed with a small but loyal fanbase who have purchased my music and merchandise, come out to shows and just generally supported me and pushed me to the point where I'm at today - so thank you to ALL you guys!

In order for me to make this European run possible we've calculated my total costs right around $3,ooo. This includes my travel to and within Europe, plus shared rooms, food, and costs towards promo while on tour. For me this trip would not only be any experience of a lifetime, seeing all these countries for the first time, but also a huge opportunity to expand my fan base overseas and even possibly return in the future with these booking connections.  

Long story short - I'm humbly asking my fans and supporters to help me make this happen. There have probably been a million times I wanted to do a GoFundMe to help put out an album or shoot a video but I hesitated because I always wanted to be able to support my own dreams and I knew one day the right opportunity might come where I actually do need the help and I think this is it!

Everyone who donates will receive and instant download of my new single appropriately titled - THANK YOU. 

Below are the dates we have booked so far with the potential to add more. Headliner + Full Support info coming as soon possible!

***An official update on the TOPE European Tour***

After 3 delays in the schedule for this tour (originally planned to leave August 25th), I've officially asked to not be a part of it anymore. The money I raised on GoFundMe went to a deposit spot on the tour that I am currently trying to get refunded and having a little bit of a difficult time doing it, due to some contract stipulations and the company I was working with being located in Vancouver, BC. I want to be able to refund everyone who donated to this campaign in time, I've just been dealing with a "Shady Promoter" of sorts. If anyone on here needs an immediate refund please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly I'll get you taken care of.

On another note, THANK YOU to each and everyone one of you for showing your support with this endeavor - I'm really disappointed that it's not happening but I also knew there was a chance of this because, well, that the music business for you sometimes. It really meant a lot to see all the donations towards this opportunity and reminded me of how many dope people I have out there supporting my music.

Hopefully, you all got a download link to my new EP SOME THINGS GOTTA CHANGE as a thank you for donating. If you didn't get one please let me know and I'll send it over asap. Thank you again! - Anthony / TOPE
