"“The tour will make 23 total stops, where Vikings fans will have the opportunity to view the iconic instrument that’s been a significant part of team history while helping to usher in the next Vikings era. At select locations, fans can also meet Viktor, Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders or Vikings alumni.”"
