Did you see ZPZ with Return To Forever at Verizon Theatre in Dallas, TX?

Dweezil and the band love reading your reviews.

This is the 6th time I have seen this group play together in the last 3 years and every time I see them, they get better and the sound is tighter. I can not say how much I enjoy watching these guys play. Pretty sweet duel between Chick Corea and the Dweez*, albeit a bit unusual for Corea to play 'King Kong' and not Jean Luc Ponty. Overall, great set filled with madness and beauty (esp. Echidna's Arf, Big Swifty and the sick Fifty-Fifty with the stage crew guest!). I was really hoping for a longer set (roughly 45 minutes), but I guess I will just have to see them again :) Sheila, Ben, and Travers never fail to impress and everyone else is always great. For a reference, I am 25 and this show might have been the widest in ages I have ever been to; I saw 11 yr olds to 90 years of age (most likely due to RTF accompanying ZPZ). It was the icing to see RTF with that lineup (Clarke!!!, Ponty!!, Gamble, White, Corea!!) as well.

Setlist:
Echidna's Arf
Don't you ever wash that thing
Fifty-Fifty
Big Swifty
City of Tiny Lights
King Kong* (with Chick Corea)
Yellow Snow
St. Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast
Rollo
