I'm missing this tour. First ZPZ I've missed. Too expensive and Roxy in full puts me off - How many tours is he going to focus on the same FZ era? So boring now, and throughout the years they have pretty much played it all anyway ( Be-Bop Tango notwithstanding )...

You'll be sorry if you do PappaWas. After all, do you know when, if ever, they're coming back? Shit happends and you might be kickin' yourself later for not going. How much are they asking for tix across the pond btw?

That seems really high for tix. They usually run around $35-$65 dollars around here in Northern California, that's about half of what they want over on your side of the pond then, that right? :shock:

I know it used to be that 1 pound = 2-1/2 dollars or $2.50 = 1 pound. Not sure about right now though.

Yeah, I kinda figured I was way high on that one. Darn recession, fluctuating economic growth, global economies busting the balloon while reaching the ceiling that wasn't there, junk bond traders, Greece and other spots, Barry Madoff People, politician's, lobbyist, big biz manipulation of the market, Wall Street, wars everywhere, weapons manufactures, and of course anything that's to big to fail. :(

Nothing near SF-SAC again. ZFT Reason? It's too crowded with all the other Zappa playing groups (with other Mothers too) playing all that Zappa music, the market must be saturated. :roll:
