I know Anton is such a busy man, so we have been back and forth for a couple of years. We finally got the dates to line up and we now get do the most phenomenal, beautiful and fun show touring around the country.”
The duo have been busy during the COVID-19 pandemic, “It’s actually still been fun as we have had a load of great zoom calls putting it all together.
