Offenburg, Germany, the city "between Rhein and vine" lies nestled in the hills of wine country, 12 miles southeast of Strasbourg, and at the foot of the Middle Black Forest. "In no other country, the sun shines brighter and the sky is bluer than here between the River Rhine and the vineyards."--Goethe This quaint german town is the cultural and business center of the region, and a popular tourist destination.

I always searched for pictures of this hall, which was demolished years ago.

At least I've found one after it was demolished:

Nice thread Fritz! 8)

This was my only Zappa show ever. I was in reform school during the '82 tour, and we all know the story of the '88 tour. The Orpheum is a beautiful place, and one of only a few of the fabulous theaters left that were built in the '20s. Widespread Panic is actually playing there on the 18th of this month.

Old thread. Just for the nostalgia I'll add another post.

Offenbach is a small town next to Frankfurt. I suppose the Frankfurt venues were occupied, when FZ came to town twice.

Merci Fritz! I missed this thread.
Maybe the idea of playing a venue with the name of a 19th century German born/French composer of satirical operettas and "opéra Comique" seemed like a fun thing.
