Star Vin Diesel announced on Facebook Live this week an international tour of arena stunt shows based on the hit franchise, in which he plays main character Dom Toretto.
Vin Diesel Said “As you know, my work with Fast & Furious never ends, which I’m grateful for because of you all,” he said, wearing a mechanic’s work shirt with his character’s name on it “So now, I am in New York, believe it or not, and we are filming something that is going to be pretty state-of-the-art, something no one’s ever seen before, which is a live show, which will be, I think it’s first going to be a show at the O2 Arena in London that’s going to go all over the world and we’re really excited about it. But it’ll be a way for you to kind of see the action first hand.”
“I’m in the middle of shooting it right now,” he added. “It’s amazing how many studios there are in New York City now.”
A website for the new Fast & Furious Live tour has already been set up.
