Rats ! It's in the middle of the week. Can't go to Berlin. I saw Frank with the Ensemble in Frankfurt and later the Ensemble at the Philharmonie Essen. They are great. Have fun, Thinman.

Yeah. I was at one Yellow Shark performance in Frankfurt in '92 (Frank's last stage appearance for ever an ever) and another one in Berlin. I have also been at two Greggery Peccary and Other Persuasions shows in 2000.

Saw them in NYC at Lincoln Center and they played G-Spot tornado twice in a row. "Let's go for the g-spot again!"

Finally. A show like this coming to OZ. They'll be in Melbourne doing this show in the middle of June and so will I for that weekend.

I've been trying to convince my accountant to let me go to Australia to attend one of the shows, what's the deal? are there any confirmed dates?

I don't want to have to fly to Perth it's around a seven hour flight, but only around three hours to Sydney.....


Who am I kidding I'll fly to Perth if I really have to.....

I've just had it confirmed by someone from ANAM that the Melbourne gig is definitely Thursday 15th June.

This obviously is only some EM members plus ANAM musicans plus a different conductor. So not exactly the same as Berlin. Anyway, I was a little underwhelmed by the Berlin performance. FZ's music is very sensitive to not enough rehearsal time. And that might have been the case there. I wouldn't fly to Australia for anything like that or worse than that. And I must not hear the millionst performance of Peaches En Regalia as an obvious encore.

Easy for you to say if you've witnessed the other 999,999 performances live. We get next to nothing down here. My wife and I were going to spend a weekend in Melbourne to celebrate our anniversary and the concert would have been some icing on the cake. It's surely not that bad?
