Tues. 6/26 @ Eastman Theater. Saw it in the local paper today. Tickets range from $45-$90. This will be the first local ZPZ gig since '06 that I'll pass on. $30 last year for balcony in Buffalo(the RTF show) was fair enough, this is just more than I'm willing to pay.
Eastman is a beautiful theatre for jazz shows - saw Sonny Rollins, Wayne Shorter, Scofield/DeJohnette/Goldings there at past jazzfest dates. I don't think it's a good venue for ZPZ which is, let's face it, a rock band. If tix were $30, and at a GA hall like The Armory or Harro East, I'd be there.
The other thing to note is the last two years both Herbie Hancock and Elvis Costello played Eastman on the Jazzfest at similar prices. Two months later they were playing the open-air Buffalo Waterfront for $10
. I'll hold out and hope ZPZ returns there in the summer.
