After some years, we went on tour with Adib. The tour started on 2nd February and finished on the 6th February. We began the tour by concert in Linz, Austria, and finished in Verl by Bielefeld, Germany. We drove 2200 km altogether. Everything went smoothly, besides the fact that our car broke down during our journey to the last concert, and we also believe that the concerts were successful. The best one was perhaps the concert in Fahrenhausen, close to Munich, where we performed on 3rd February. There were 100 people in the audience and the concert went extremely well. Below is the critics about the concert.
