Freedom Call Issue Post Tour Update

Germany's FREEDOM CALL have checked in with the following update vocalist/guitarist Chris Bay:

Hey Callers,

The time was running away so fast on tour with PINK CREAM 69 and the guys of MAD MAX, so we already arrived at Nuremberg after the last show in Plzen/CZ.

We had an awesome time with Pink Cream 69 on the tour bus and also a good time with Vossie & Juergen of Mad Max so we're a little bit sad that the shows are gone...

A big Cheerz to the exellent crew with basi (sound), michael (lights), danny (guitars) and chris (drums)... they did an great job and helped in every situation!

Also cheerz to Maikel, who recorded a couple of shows with his camera...

But, the biggest CHEERZ to YOU, for visiting our concerts and the fantasic support you gave us!!

The next show for us will be in Belgium on November 10th and further in France... we're looking forward unpatiently :)

Best wishes and see you soon."
