Google translate: Zappa thrills at Wembley Frank Zappa came to England with his new Mothers to play a single concert at the Empire Pool in Wembley. At a time when concert tickets sell like peanuts, alas, that wasn't the case with Frank. The 8,000 seats at Wembley were occupied by only 5,000 fans. A real contrast from the reports of the various European concerts by Zappa and Ponty. Wembley Pool looked a little cold and dreary, after the enthusiastic crowds of days before with Super Mick and his Stones. But Frank was asked for two encores, thus proving that, even if the 12 million Londoners managed to squeeze only 5,000 fans, they nevertheless got in trouble. Frank? He played little, making the others play more and in the meantime smoking two packs of cigarettes. What a great fellow. Come back soon Frank!
