Off and touring in Europe

Fred and his New JBs are on the road in Europe -- a few days into a 10-day tour that began at Quasimodo in Berlin, where our friend Heinrich Buttler caught the shots below, and photographer Dieter Duvelmeyer caught these.  Thanks, Heinrich! Thanks, Dieter!

The stop in Berlin also featured a visit to multicult.fm, weltkuturradio, world culture radio, where Fred appeared live on the Saturday morning show of Wolfgang Konig. Visit www.multicult.fm to hear the rebroadcast tomorrow, April 25, at 3 p.m. Berlin time. (Fred's segment will begin at 4 p.m.)

The next stop, Tibilisi, Georgia, featured a news conference in addition to the performance tonight, as well as a whole lot of that famous Georgian hospitality. Scroll down for family pictures from there.
