I booked a double room here which I no longer need

http://www.travelodge.co.uk/hotels/info?hotelId=153

Youre welcome to it for the price I paid £20 instead of current £63

http://www.virgintrains.co.uk/

are £23 return London-Manchester at the moment but that price will go up dramatically as each day passes!

Looks like you're now sorted (if take JamesE up on what looks an irrefusable offer!) but I'll be goin to at least one of these gigs (the Liverpool one; got tickets). 8) Am toying with the VIP for the Manchester one also though (assuming still available)....

If it's The Phil where you are going in Liverpool to see ZPZ then it should be a good night.
We go to The Phil regularly for classical conerts and it's a wonderful theatre with a great stage and top notch acoustics.

That's the venue, you're right 8) . Can't really speak from (critical) experience but am aware it's got a great reputation for it's acoustics :smoke:

I'm flying over from Sweden together with my wife, brother and sister-in-law to see the concert i Manchester on 22nd of November at Bridgewater Hall - Nice!
Arrives at Sunday by noon, and back on Wednesday the 23rd. Some christmas shopping, good food and drinks and on the to, the show with Dzeezil and the band! Could it be better? It will be my 6th ZPZ concert so far. They're really awesome!

I wonder if the "Carnegie Hall" 4-CD set will be available to buy at the concert in Manchester
Ordered two copies at the day it was announced, but if it's available on the tour, I definitely buy one copy directly.
Exactly the same happened last year when I saw ZPZ in Malmoe. There I could (and did) buy a copy of Hammersmith Odeon, even if I already had ordered two copies at the day it was announced.
Stupid - yeah maybe, but.......fun - yes!

Never occurred to me that but will be cool if can get some of these new and/or ZFT releases at the concert for better prices (than importing from BS and/or ordering from G and S music (they price to match the ZFT prices via BS, inclusive of the shipping). Might have to take that opportunity if so 8)

Back in Sweden again - but unfortunately no "Carnegie Hall" at Bridgewater Hall, Manchester on Tuesday 22nd of November. Although a great and awesome concert as usual. This was the 6th time a saw ZPZ, and I've never been disappointed, it's the other way around!
Thanks to the whole band, for sure, I'll be back in the future!

Yeah, no Carnnegie Hall at Liverpool show either (so guessing not brought on tour or sold out at first few tour dates ie before Philharmonic Hall gig).

I was all set to grab a bundle while could at best prices but only item I needed that they had available was Hammermith Odeon for £35- £48 at g and s music which is cheaper than ordering from BS direct ie with shipping and import VAT etc this would be exceeded- which I nabbed, but no Buffalo, Lumpy Money, Mofo project/object or, of course, Carnegie Hall. Did have FTMAMM, CSMNL and GLS but all at prices you can get at G and S music (didn't realise this place was actually based in Liverpool until recently).

As for show itself it was excellent and I had a blast! The dance party was a welcome bonus and nice ode to Frank's penchant for audience participation 8) . Saw that clip of Guthrie Govan at the Bridgewater which must've been cool. :smoke:

sorry about not responding. I had turbulant times at college, and I had to quit my plans for Manchester , so I totaly forgot on this topic...

I really hope ZPZ will come to Croatia next year, cause this is becoming crazy. in 2010 they canceled conert in Padova (I've traveled there) and now I had to cancel everything... 2012 dweez'! 2012! :smoke:
