If you thought the Spice World bus was cool, well, you were right. But now there’s a new bus in town, and this one could make all your dreams come true. 

Fox announced that it’s launching Fox’s Next Empire Artist, a nationwide bus tour, which will kick off on July 16. The bus — which is gold and comes fitted with a recording studio — will travel to 15 cities across the country to give fans an opportunity to record their own versions of some of Empire’s biggest hits. 

Additionally, if fans want, they can record an a capella version of a song to submit in the contest, and by the end of the tour, one winner will appear as an artist in Empire’s upcoming second season.

The following cities will be included in the tour: Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Dallas, New Orleans, Nashville, Atlanta, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York, and Boston.

But most importantly, the bus also comes equipped with Cookie’s fresh-baked cookies. So you really can’t lose.
