:D
Just return from the show!!!

It was awesome!!!!!marvelous!!! almost 4 hours of Zappa music.
The sound was good except a little bit loud, especialy when Mr Bozzio came in, he's really on of the best drummer I ever seen.
The audience was great, Dweezil said it was the best of the whole tour…there was a standing ovation after almost all songs, GREAT!!!!! :)

Steve performance was very cool, he's so a great performer…
Napoleon Murphy Brown, is un believable, just like the old days, funny, great sax <playing, extraordinaire VOICE.

Dweezil, seem not very confortable on stage, looks like he was very moved.
He was very too static, too bad…

Finally, I love this show
ZAPPA is GOD

.... every artist says the same on every city. Have you heard any artist sying "Thanks for the ovation but it's the same on every city. You're just an average audience"? :)

As a Zappa fan, one of my biggest regrets is never having seen Frank live, so last night was very special. It was unbelievable to witness what those guys pulled off. It was also very moving.
My favorite moments were St Alphonzo, Montana, TBP#2 and Sofa.
Thanks for an amazing night! :)

Whatever I am right or not it was intense and great for you. That's the important thing. This is for what you paid those 60something euro LOL

What Steve would like to say, it's was unique last night!!!!!
Do you remember an audience who could sing along with Frank zappa music anywhere.

THANKS STEVE to appreciate our passion for this music.

Seems pretty clear he means your assertion that the crowd in Paris was average as any other crowd any other night is off base. Sounds like the ones there enjoyed a special performance and responded to the band accordingly. :headbang

Great then. I am happy they had such a great night.

French people can go on strike like nobody else, so Why not to be such a special audience?

Good for you guys!

I went to 3 "real illusions"-shows; Belgium(where I live), Holland & France and the audience in Paris was also the best then :wink:

This concert was great.

All musicians were very happy to be in paris to play this great music.

I was just in front of Steve Vai during the last hour of the show...... I made a dream to be at this place.....

Steve was just himself, he plays great, like all the others artist.

Each time I see steve vai on stage, I don"t understand everything......He is not human..........lol

Thanx a lot Steve for your great guitar style. It was wonderfull............
