Bobbie will be touring many places in Poland and Berlin, Germany, until May 25, 2012. Though he has not yet made the first trip overseas, he has been invited by another musician to return to Poland to tour with his band in September 2012. We will give more details on the latter tour as the itinerary is delivered to Bobbie. I am saying us because as his manager, agent and wife I will be accompanying Bobbie on this tour.
