The band was doing a little sight seeing at the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ and were pleased to see a billboard of the Octyabrsky Foreigner show in the square directly in front of the famous tourist attraction (the cathedral is directly to the left).
During the 'Cold As Ice' jam, Kelly makes his rounds with the audience in St. Petersburg.
The Russia tour was great with awesome fans at all three shows. This was Foreigners' first time in Russia, so the fans were very appreciative, and Mick and Company were happy to be able to play three shows. Here is Mick signing autographs in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
Next stop, Germany...

After staying the night in Copenhagen, it was a 3 hour drive to Denmark on June 6th for the Esjberg Rock Festival.
After the show, the band drove to Hamburg for their flight to Lisbon the next day. With a couple days off in Lisbon, they were in a good mood.

Somehow, Kelly and Jeff got "first class" seats in the cockpit with a personal birdseye tour of Lisbon from the captain, just in time for the landing! Ahh, the life of a rock star! Check out the video:
Here's Brian and Jeff right before taking stage in Lisbon. Still in a good mood.
