It’s been one hell of a ride that’s taken us overseas, while we’ve also witnessed some of the most rambunctious hometown shows in recent memory alongside Alison. Today is Alison’s birthday, so we decided to compile some of our favourite moments on the road to commemorate her meteoric rise to stardom. Nowadays, she spends most of her time in Los Angeles as another Australian making a serious international impact, but she’ll be coming home for Field Day 2017, and looking at these images means that we can’t wait.
Happy birthday Alison! See the memories below. All of the feels:
