"This is the largest and loudest crowd I perform for throughout the year — they always bring it and I wouldn't miss this opportunity."

Liza Hegemier, marketing associate for Kenda, said Columbus is not only home to OSU, but to Kenda as well and the company is a proud supporter of Ohio State Athletics.

"We are excited to bring Mike back to the Schottenstein Center for another year. He never fails to entertain a crowd."
