Heroes are Coming to Canada
Stars from our favorite show will be in Toronto next month to mark the release of the Season One DVD and to generate some buzz for season two of Heroes.
Global, which broadcasts the NBC hit in Canada, announced Tuesday that several cast members will meet fans on Aug. 31 in Yonge-Dundas Square. It's part of a whirlwind tour that will stop in eight cities around the world.
"We are thrilled to be embarking on this exciting venture," said Heroes creator and executive producer Tim Kring, in a release. "The theme of Heroes has been about people from all over the planet coming together to do great things. About making the world a smaller, more inter-connected place. This tour is the embodiment of those ideals."
The list of cast members coming to Toronto hasn't been announced, but Adrian Pasdar, Milo Ventimiglia, Hayden Panettiere, Masi Oka, Ali Larter, Greg Grunberg and six others are participating in the tour.
The Heroes World Tour, presented by Nissan, kicks off Aug. 27 in Munich and Tokyo with stops in New York, Hong Kong, London, Paris, Singapore and Tokyo.
Heroes: Season One will be released on DVD on Aug. 28 and the second season premieres Sept. 24 on Global and NBC.
