Eli Young tour bus burns

Staff Reports

The tour bus for the Eli Young Band, featuring Tomball grad Mike Eli (Class of 1999), and a trailer with much of the band’s stage gear burned outside of Topeka, Kansas last night, according to the band’s Facebook page.

The band posted video of the fire, which completely destroyed the trailer and tour bus.

“We’ve lost more than a bus here. There are memories and possessions that we can’t replace! It’s really sad to see her go. We’re just happy that our driver, Randy, is safe!” the band wrote on their Facebook page under a photo of the burning bus and trailer.

Mike Eli recorded an intro for a KTHS-TV “Dance Party Friday” video from his tour bus in December 2011.
