[…] Daddy and daddy and daddy split up,” they explained. Before that, however, there is a very big farewell. The dates for the farewell tour “Fettes Brot is History” have already been set: It begins on April 5th in Rostock and takes the band to Bremen, Cologne, Berlin, Munich and on May 6th to Kiel.
