Here's what attendees said about the 2016 COSS tour:

“Loved seeing the intimate spaces where the artist created.”

“The tour definitely gave the audience a backstage experience that typically one would not experience or have knowledge of how much effort is put into making our concerts enjoyable.”

“We loved every stop, even if it wasn't our particular type of art we normally enjoy. It was awesome.”

“It was a great opportunity, one usually never has the opportunity to see the 'behind the scenes' stuff.”
