Thank you! There's this Amnesty Tour going on right now. Last year they also had an Amnesty Tour. I was really honored when they used a song, a Bob Dylan song, to close the Amnesty show last year, the song "I Shall Be Released". We're gonna play that later. This year, they, to my surprise, they chose another song called "Chimes Of Freedom" to close this year's show. I'm hopin' next year they might choose this song! (before In The Garden).
