Isaac Does Europe 

Isaac Hayes is back in town after a successful European summer tour that covered France, Spain, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

Even steady rain didn't dampen the enthusasm of fans in Wiltshire, located in southwest England, at the 25-year-old WOMAD Festival founded by Peter Gabriel. Even with a severe weather warning, Memphis' own Oscar-winner gave the crowd of thousands an "electric" show. As one fan said, "To see someone like Isaac Hayes perform live is awsome, [especially when] he sang 'Soul Man' and then 'Shaft.' He was superb.'" To read more go here.
