European Time Zones

Hello Gates fans,

ooops, I think I said the Gates concert in Frankfurt would begin at 22:30 Euro time but I believe that Germany is 9 hours ahead of the Pacific Region of North America so the performance time in Germany on wednesday July 14th is likely going to be 23:30 until otherwise notified.

Gates German Concert Update

Thu Apr 22, 2004 00:00 - Thu Apr 22, 2004

Update and Corrections:

The Gates Avatar Net-Streaming Concert in Germany is today, Thursday April 22, not the 16th as advertised in the calendar.

In addition, a mistake was made with regards to the performance time. The concert will indeed take place at 23:45 PM German time but that translates into 2:45 (14:45) PM PST not 12:45 PM as previously posted.

The Traveler room where the show will take place is "Polybombed" which you can download from OzGate USA

Be sure to download the USA version and not the Europian version.
