I'll be seeing them tomorrow! :D
I'm very curious to see the "stripped down to the core" band with the new singer. But I'm sure that it will be fantastic.

Monday, I saw the show in Paris, and it was really fantastic.
The new lead singer is so good, but why to doubt it?
You go to spend a magnificent moment, I am sure of it. :)

Oops my mistake; it should have been "I'm very curious" instead of "I'm anxious". I thought that anxious had a different meaning. :? I've just edited my original post :wink:

Have fun tonight Dirk :headbang
I'm sure you gonna pass a great time :peace

Hi Polymnie, how was the set-list? Great I hope! Did they played Billy The Mountain?
And how was the sound? The other times I saw ZPZ the sound was perfect, to me. The front PA system engineer on last tour was a white hair man named Glynn Wood. He absolutely rocks and I hope he still working on this tour.

June 14th... almost there :headbang

We enjoyed a great concert last night. Ben Thomas is indeed a very talented singer!
Each one of these musicians is amazing and together they are unbeatable. Very nice tribute to Frank's music!!
