RIVERSIDE’s Mariusz Duda checked in to comment:

“We’ve played about 50 gigs so far. We visited many places for the first time. The audience was amazing. The concerts in such places as Mexico, Atlanta, Paris, Belgrade and many many more will stay in our memories for long. There are many places yet to visit, and that’s why a second leg of the tour will take place in September and October. It’s our 10th-year anniversary so we’ve got to take advantage of that”
