He spent February and the first part of March in Europe, playing in France, England, Germany, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Algeria and Czech Republic. After the North Carolina performances, he will do four shows at the University of California before heading off for a tour of Mexico.
