Ordered my Buffalo tik thru the pre-sale today when I got home from work, easy purchase. $54 + $2 surcharge(will call) for around middle of floor, next to soundboard. I've seen DZ every tour since the first one, don't really need to pay top dollar for front rows. Cheers to Ticketfly for keeping surcharges down on pre-sale. :)

This will be the fourth time that DZ & Co. have played this venue(UB Center For The Arts) - the first was in '06, then opening for Return To Forever in '11, & the complete OSFA tour in '15. All great times. Saw DZ last a yr ago in Rochester. New lineup was so solid, hope it's mainly the same.

They should open with Easy Meat.

This band needs to do their version of King Kong.

The Yellow Snow Suite would be an epic finale for each show.

Hello, Friends,

I'm just about to head over to the UK to start another Dweezil Zappa Plays Whatever The F**k He Wants Tour. I'm really looking forward to playing all of the new material we've learned but more importantly, I want to welcome Adam Minkoff to the band for this UK/European tour. Adam is an incredibly talented multi-instrumentalist and vocalist and a great addition to the band.

We have a lot of surprises in the setlist and we will also have some other guests at a few shows. We are lucky to have the Norwegian Wind Ensemble playing with us at several gigs including London and Oslo.

I'll keep you posted on the other dates where they will join us!

Can't wait to see you on the road!

Regards, DZ

So - Adam Minkoff replaces David Luther, but Cian Coey is still on board, correct? Rest of the core band is also intact - Norton, Brown, Morgan, Scheila?
Sort of bummed to find out that Acid Mothers Temple is playing a small club in Rochester, same night as DZ Buffalo show 4/18, after I just purchased tix. Oh well, I'd still likely choose DZ anyway. Saw Acid Mothers last year, they still melt faces.
Haven't seen the full AMT schedule yet @ their site. Just saw dates popping up in Cleveland & Rochester so far.
