I prefer touring the U.S mostly, second would be Asia, I don't like the UK because its hit or miss if they let you in to work. I've had it happen several times where they would deny my work visa saying that I would be taking away a job from someone there.

I'd much rather play Podunk in France than in the US: much better food.

I prefer touring in Europe and much of Asia.

While good times are had both in the US and EU as well as other places, I always enjoy a good walk around a city in the EU.
