Apollonia 6 Europe "Promo Tour"

On A6's Wiki page, it mentions that the group went on a promo tour through Europe. I couldn't find info on this anywhere on the net, does anyone know if this tour actually happened?

Prince: 1958-infinity. Thank U for everything.

Yes they went to Europe to promote their "Sex Shooter" single and the album. I don't know how many countries they visited, but here's a performance from Dutch TV show Toppop.

Just like the white winged dove...

Yes, they went on a promo tour just like Sheila E did before the Purple Rain tour

It wasn't with a band though, ie the Time, like Vanity 6. I think that lent to a 'cheesier' feel to it, and Apollonia not being a frontman like Vanity

Brenda would have done a better job leading

thank u for the insight. so they only went to the netherlands and france? i'm guessing their last appearance together as a band live was during "baby i'm a star" on the PR tour?

They also appeared on Formel Eins, a German music show that was very popular in the early 80s.
