3. GETTING READY
"My awesome dancers before they hit the stage. Love them!"
4. CUSTOM MERCH
"I named my EP Haiz because that's what my fans call me. When I started recording music for it, I realized how much more personal this project was because it's the first time I'm not playing a character. It's just me: Haiz!"
5. SIGNED BY HAIZ
"I always sign one of the hats before the show and throw it out to a fan in the audience."

7. PRE-SHOW HUDDLE
"Having a pep talk with my girls. We always huddle together before we go on. It's so crazy to hear fans screaming from backstage. That moment right before I take the stage is filled with such an insane mix of nerves and excitement."
8. CURTAIN CALL
"Honestly, I still can't believe I'm on tour. I've waited so long to do this. It's so amazing to feel the love from fans and to be able to hit the road with someone as fun as Meghan. Hopefully this will be the first tour of many!"
