Tickets at 37.50 if it ever happens! What a rip-off, what an insult to Frank's anti-commercialism.

I bought tickets for the London show the day they went on sale....Of course, the show is now on June 2nd rather than November 2nd, but still hope itll happen and itll be a good show Im sure....Second row seats too, so cant be bad...

I paid E. 145 for a VIP-ticket in Amsterdam... primarily to meet Dweezil.

Keeping my fingers crossed...

I have tickets for the Amsterdam concert, but I must say that I'm very disappointed with the way things have been going re. ZPZ (as most / all fans are, I guess.. :( )

That kind of price is the norm for big shows in venues such as the proposed ZPZ venues Im afraid James....Nothing really to do with the bands / promoters....

Oh, I would gesture to say everyone involoved is on guarantees, but it seems that to include evryones fees and to pay for the whole thing in the first place, tickets need to be a certain price.....Last time I was at the Albert Hall to see Yes, the tickets were 41!

It is kinda expensive, but Gojira is right: most tickets for concerts in these kind of venues are pricy. I don't really like these big concert halls anyway, but I saw Yes and Rush in concert (not on the same bill) some time ago and those concerts were also pretty expensive.

It does annoy me that we still don't know anything about the touring line-up and the kind of material they'll be playing. The ZFT is really dropping the ball on this one...

I saw Rush too, Puptent, and I agree with you.....Didnt really enjoy the show either, I love the band, but live they are kinda boring, and our seats sucked...Still, a good night out though......They are really dropping the ball, instead of keeping it all a secret, they should have got all the line up(s) in place, and then made a big announcement, as more people would buy tickets right?....Still, I dont think Ike Willis or Napoleon Murphy Brock will be involved due to them and the ZFT falling out in the past, but I for one really feel Ike in particular has to be there, as to me, he is embedded in Zappa musical history and sung on more albums than any other singer......For more of my rants on this subject, find the posts on zappa.com!!

Right! Positive thinking! It'll be worth it... I have less long to wait, until Ahmet's birthday. What shall I buy him? A soft-toy skunk?

In theory, they shouldve been in rehearsal when they announced the shows in the first place, but they werent, to which we all thought "theyre cutting it a bit fine arent they?", then BAM!, postponement......Am still hopeful of the 2nd June though.....At least we didnt have to re-buy tickets, so my second row seats are still valid, and I didnt have to get up early for a BOX OFFICE WAR.....

Yeah, they werent on sale when I ordered mine, on the day of the tickets going on sale, then all of a sudden there they were, available to buy.....To be honest though, I wasnt really interested as, lets face it, Frank wasnt gonna be there, and the line up had not yet been fully announced, so a second row seat suited me fine....Fucking coolness if you are a Dweezil fan though......

Yeah, I wouldn't know what to say to them anyway. "Gee, I really like your dad's music". It is a cool gesture, though,
