We’re still talking about their Las Vegas Star Star convention that happened in August, but Creation Entertainment is already taking their 55-Year Mission on tour, with the first stop coming next week in the New York area. Many of the celebrities from Vegas are going, and some who didn’t make it to the August event are going to be at the Sci-Fi Summit.
