Drake Bell updated fans on his blog at MySpace (@drakebellonline) on Wednesday (October 29). The ‘Drake & Josh’ star tells readers:
We got back from playing in Mexico this week and I’m just coming up for air. The trip was awesome! The people in Mexico were so friendly, and the fans were amazing. My band and I had an incredible time. I wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out to the in-store and the shows, the people who figured out where we were staying and stayed at the hotels for hours and hours, not to mention the airports. You really made us feel welcome. Gracias. We all want to come back and do it all again!

The singer/actor also gave a preview of what to expect next year. “2008 looks like it will be an exciting one as well,” Bell writes. “Both movies I filmed in 2007 will be released on the big screen in March and April. You know what that means… I will be on your TV’s promoting them. But before I head off to promote the movies, I will be in the studio working on my next album, and we have been talking about another tour in 2008 that may go international, and some film projects may be lurking around the corner. You will just need to stay tuned to see what happens next.”
