So ? Anyone going ? I'm surprised tickets are still on sale. Last time I saw them (october 2005 , cité de la musique), the show was sold out in a few days only...

I hope they won"t be playing the current setlists though...

I'll be there too with a friend (and if the Zénith ain't packed, the better)
Setlists tend to change a bit. By december, guess some RR songs will be replaced by a couple of "oldies" they're strarting to throw in.

I was looking online, and my French is not that awesome...does the Zenith have a capacity of about 6000 people?? That's what I thought it said, but that seemed kind of big for SY. I'm confused.

The site more or less says that the venue was built in 1983, is 6200 square metres in size, has two levels of seating, and has a capacity of up to 5830. By the looks of it there are three possible set ups, which allow for capacities of 6293 standing or 5783 seated, or 3959 stading or 3740 seated, or 2466 standing or 2024 seated.

Plan of venue:

Dino? Are you kidding?

I saw Sonic Youth at the Zénith in 1992.
I saw Dinosaur Jr a year before that at the Elysée Montmartre (with Mike Johnson on bass).
It's gonna look like time travelling til Sonic Youth play their RR oriented set.
Hope J & the fossils play Forget the Swan.

Yes, the trip from Budapest seems quite quite worth it.

Yeah!

Seems fuckin insane, but I already booked my ticket. SY and Dino!!!

I been in Paris only once, 15 years ago for few days. So I am asking where's the Zenith exactly, how to get it, if there are hostels not so far... Anyone can help me please?

Zénith of Paris is exactly there: http://maps.google.fr/maps?f=q&hl=fr&ie=UTF8&z=19&ll=48.894155,2.393177& spn=0.001169,0.00339&t=h&om=1
So in the North-East of Paris, very close to the limit of the city.

It is part of the "Villette" complex, along with a museum of sciences & industry, and the "cité de la musique" where SY played last year (and which currently shows an exhibition called "Travelling Guitars", I guess this could be an appetizer before the show).

http://www.le-zenith.com/paris/
http://www.cite-musique.fr/

The closest metro station is "Porte de Pantin" (line 5). From that station, the Zenith is very easy to find.
"Porte de la Vilette" (line 7) is also OK if you know where to go (as far as I remember, the way to the Zénith is not indicated from that station)

Don't know much about the hotels in this area...

me and a group of friends are travelling down for a few days from jersey (an island between the uk and france) for this. i think we are going to try and find a cheap hostel or something to stay in, because we are basically skint. i think we are going to try and hitch a lift from st. malo down to the capital.

Has anyone not bought their ticket yet? Because I'm willing to sell mine as I can't go to the gig (i now study 500 kms away and I've got a mandatory lab session at my School and midterm exams are the same week, I'm sure SY knew it and planned their concert accordingly).

The price is the same as if you bought it from the internet.

PM me if you're interested.
