It's the other way around. The Dweez opens for RTF.

You know what would be cool? DZPZ:ANS opens for RTF, and DZPZ:ANS encores with "I Have Been In You" and they change the lyric to "Return to forever, return to forever...." and RTF runs out and starts playing.

In a similar vein, if ZZ Top opened for Ronnie Wood, ZZ Top could come back out onstage and play "Woke Up With Wood" and well, nevermind...

RTF was amazing this evening at the Mann Center. Hard to believe these guys are in their 70s.

I was kinda hoping they would invite Dweezil out for a rendition of King Kong.

Neither band played an encore......

Maybe the other way around? I would like to see ZPZ inviting Ponty to do a rendition of King Kong during the Hammond, IN show that I will be attending on the 20th.

BTW are they selling any Zappa merchedise during the shows?

Nothing new unfortunately. What a wasted opportunity. They've had all year to get a new vault release together. Oh well.
Just a bunch of shirts, all $35. Sorry that's too much for a tee. (Proceed to Amazon :wink: ). Hoodies and jackets that were between $50-$100. Various overpriced chachkies too. CDs - Hammersmith $45, Philly $30. Single discs were Congress, Greasy Love Songs, Joe's Menage between $15-$20.

BTW the show was great. $28 to see ZPZ play 90 min, and RTF 120 min. Can't argue w/ that.

No way should Return to Forever be opening for Dweezil and company. I saw the original Zappa plays Zappa lineup at the Jammy's in 06 . After a few songs Chick Corea was brought on stage by Dweezil. First and only time have I seen/heard one musician totally outplaying all others on stage. I enjoyed Dweezil playing Franks music but Chick Corea was in a class of his own that night

one of dimeola's 1st gigs with the band in '74, clarke was about 18; front row center seats level with the stage; the audience joined the band onstage for the encore

DiMeola was the young member of the band. On this date in 1974 he was 20, Clarke was 23.
