Rehearsals with the band without Pete
In an empty Zénith

We went to the Zénith very early saw the guys in the band and could see the soundcheck from the stage infront of an empty Zénith.
They've played 4 instrumental version from Peter's solo record

Time tables & Merch
This gig wasn't commercially a success as it was a small Zénith ( 2500 capacity ) and it was far from being full and the guestlist was as long as the Eiffel Tower.
Where are all his fans ?
Lots of young girls as always.
