    As in, one week ago, September 4? 2020?

    If so, I had no idea AZ were in any way an ongoing entity... Who is in the band?

    It's one of two final shows. Like final, final. Tributes to Art Zoyd and Gerard's work & legacy by some of the alumni of Art Zoyd.

    Curious, not trying to be a dick...

    What was boring about it?
    What were you expecting?
    Why didn't it deliver for you?

    I'm half watching and listening right now and am finding it pretty fascinating as a strict aural landscape. Sure, no engagement with the audience or anything like that, I mean it's not a rock show or anything. This is what Art Zoyd does, and has been doing for a couple decades now.

    And even my previous sentence, now that I look at it may not be exactly accurate as the stage setup and equipment strikes an imposing visual.

    In fact, since I'm typing this while watching it, I'll even go back and correct my first comment about not engaging with the audience because the interpretive dancer just came out and started to go all "rogue puppet" on my ass.

    So now...i'm interested...and digging it.

    Hey, it's Art Zoyd now, not Art Zoyd Generation Sans Futur or even Art Zoyd Berlin.

    Looking forward to what comes next!

    Best

    I lacked the suspense, the tension/release they used to, and I couldn't hear/feel any direction... The dancer didn't explain the music.

    ^^^ I got through about 45 minutes of it and I pretty much agree with that. It often seemed random. That being said, sometimes you need to be physically there, in the hall, for these kinds of shows to connect. You have to feel the drums pounding through the body. You have to see the dancer in 3D. So I may well have enjoyed it in person even if I'm not that impressed after watching on the PC.

    True. Being there sometimes helps.

    Nowadays, being ANYWHERE would help.
