According to Universal, in addition to live musical performances, appearances from stars and more, “the final stop on “The Road to F9” will occur at Maurice A. Ferré Park in downtown Miami at 3 PM EST, where lucky super-fans will party with the stars.”
Vin Diesel said;
The heart of the Fast & Furious franchise has always been—and will always be—family, and it brings me so much joy that our extended family will be with us to help celebrate the launch of this chapter.
We are nothing without our ride-or-die fans, and we are thrilled that they
will be in Miami to welcome old- and new-school cast and crew, as well as usher in a brand-new era of Fast & Furious.
While Aussie fans are unlikely to be able to attend in person in Miami, a livestream will take place during the event. It will be streamed on the Fast & Furious Facebook Page and YouTube Channel and will take place from 7 am to 8.30 am AEDT on February 1, 2020.
Onsite attendees will be able to try their hand at the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon simulator. They’ll also be able to mingle with other fans and maybe get a selfie with the stars.
