Joe and Caspar on Tour

Wednesday, 19 October 2016 13:55

If you are an avid follower of all things YouTube, you would’ve heard of Joe Sugg and Casper Lee. With over 11 million YouTube subscribers and 2 million Facebook fans between them, Joe and Casper are undoubtedly two of the most popular YouTubers, and are adored by young girls across the globe. While Joe is the younger sibling of British YouTube sensation Zoe Sugg (a.k.a. ‘Zoella’¬) and has been making YouTube videos since 2011, Casper grew up in South Africa and is known for his comedy vlogs. 

Following the success of their first roadtrip around Europe last year, Joe and Casper have since be working on a new project, which is called ‘Joe & Casper Hit the Road USA’ and will be released on DVD at the end of November. The sequel follows the pair as they embark on a roadtrip around the USA, covering over 2,000 miles. During this trip, Joe and Casper compete against each other through a series of pranks, competitions, forfeits and challenges. They also meet people in various professions, for example lifeguards, astronauts, footballers and ranch hands. 

In a live stream from the YouTube Space LA, Joe and Casper both revealed how excited they were to be doing another project together. Joe Sugg states “I’ve felt so many emotions on this trip – you’ll have to watch to find out why”, while Casper Lee says “This time I’ve put my body on the line…and it’s going to pay off.” He is ‘thrilled’ to be working with Joe again and claims the roadtrip “was one of the best experiences” he’s ever had. 

Fans will be pleased to hear that the two YouTuber personalities will be doing a live tour in the UK this month. Joe and Casper will visit Sheffield, Liverpool, Wolverhampton, Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow and London. During their live tour, the duo will talk about their trip and show exclusive footage from filming the video to their fans. There will also be an opportunity for the audience to meet Joe and Casper in person. You can find more about the tour at www.hittheroadusa.com. Tickets are available here.
