‘New Moon’ Mall Tour: Ashley Greene & Kellan Lutz Hit Up Illinois’ Westfield Fox Valley Mall

The “New Moon” tour hit Illinois last night with Ashley Greene and (newly blond) Kellan Lutz taking center stage as hundreds of screaming fans surely broke a few decibel records in appreciation.

MTV News caught up with the photogenic pair moments after their autograph session ended in the mall’s “New Moon” paraphernalia packed Hot Topic. We’ll share our fun-filled conversation with the duo soon right here.

But, the action began long before Kellan and Ashley arrived. MTV News touched down in Chicago early in the day to hang with the fans, many of whom had camped out Halloween night to collect the coveted wristbands ensuring them an autograph.

If the excitement and enthusiasm of the crowd in the Aurora mall is any indication the rest of the 15 stop “New Moon” mall tour (which began in L.A. last Friday and culminates in New York City November 19) will be an unprecedented success in connecting the fans with the “Twilight” cast. One word of advice: if you make it out to one of the next stops be sure to bring a strong voice if you expect to heard. Or earplugs if you’re worried about waking up the next morning without a headache.

We’ve also brought you a tour report from the Cherry Hill mall in New Jersey and Hollywood and we’ll continue to bring you coverage of the mall tours from across the nation in the coming days, so stay tuned!
