The Fools’ tour is sponsored by Israel at Heart, you know, those dudes that brought us The Ambassador. Rumour has it that Ambassador Eytan Schwartz will be attending both shows, but, sadly for the ladies in the hizouse, he will be escorted by his lovely girlfriend. Sorry. But seriously, these guys are big fun. Check out the video on their Web site.
The Fools of Prophecy will be back in November on a North American Campus Tour too, so look out for that as well.
