According to The Wellmont Theater's website, the ZPZ show scheduled for 11/05/09 has been postponed until Saturday, January 16th. Kinda sucks, but at least it's a Saturday.

Well if this show or any part of the ZPZ Fall Tour is postponed
I think that many ZPZ fans would be happy if DZ has a little extra time to work on those
works in progress. But then again I always tend to look at things in a positive way.

There was only this one date in the NYC area then a two week off period until the second show in Texas.
This may very well be my first Official January Zappa show.
Here is to NYC area looking forward to Zappa Plays Zappa 2010 and as I had stated I think
we are still in for some special surprises of the expected and unexpected.

I can confirm that I received an E-Mail from
The Wellmont Theatre <wellmont@broadcaster.email-tickets.com>
today at 7:22 PM that noted

DWEEZIL ZAPPA PLAYS ZAPPA (Original Date Nov 5)
This date has been postponed to Saturday January 16th



Now what is the reason your friends are so happy?
Saturday and or maybe this gives DZ a little extra time to finish YCFOSA Downloads,CDs & DVD
of which the later will supposedly as reported by Charlie Boswell be held back until the FZ Roxy DVD is ready.

ZPZ is the finest live show out there. I can not think of any other band playing today that I would rather see live.
Being at the tail end of the currently published tour dates gives them more time to do new things for the NYC area audience.
Lets all hope the demand for hearing FZs music keeps up but until we get any given show I am sure DZ has lots to keep him busy.
The problem today though is how many fans buy Downloads, CDs, DVDs and any given media.
Not only is it a tough economy but fans do not buy records like they use to.

I think the Zappa family does a real nice job balancing out the live ZPZ concerts and putting out Vault material.
Yes lets all hope everything is going well and DZ can get us each and every ZPZ YCFOSA Downloads ASAP
and all the other nice projects that are in the wings. I really do think it is a balancing act between live shows
and release material they each go hand in hand to promote one another and what has been coming out is amazing stuff not many of us ever dreamed of.
When these YCFOSA Downloads and media projects get released that will all be icing on the cake
of the finest optional entertainment known to mankind. For those out there that wave a flag Boycott Official Zappa don't say I did not warn you.
Friends of moving the project/object forward unite in peace with optimism.

I know of some very special things that are in the wings. :D
I think I will be very quite now for it is not my job to stir the pot and give anything away.
I give away optimism free of charge.

According to the DZ blog, the Progressive Nation Tour is only half over. This MUST be why the show is postponed. The Prog Nation Tour is being extended to mid November!

My friends are happy too.

This has happened numerous times. Usually it's announced somewhere, then it's not on the official dates, then it pops up again later.

I got a call from the ticket agency I bought my tickets through weeks ago. Sat. works out better for me, but my brother was kind of bummed, he hasn't seen the show yet.

I bought my tickets through that link about a week ago; got them yesterday. There seemed to still be plenty of seats available. The Wellmont's site still lists the show. From their website click on "see all shows" at the top left of the screen. This brings up a calendar with all sceduled shows on it, Zappa included.
