Before I found out it was to be in one of his rockier incarnations, I was enjoying the refreshing thought of someone playing Gypsy Jazz to a field of somewhere approaching 20,000 people. It would also probably send paynej49 into an apoplexy.

Shame.
Just because someone is able to still fit into a pair of Spandex pants doesn't mean they should still wear them.
Nothing would delight me more than Gypsy Jazz in front of 20,000 people.
Let's see...Jorgenson...Jorgenson. Wasn't he the one booed at Django-In-June a while back and asked not to return?

No. I think that was Marc Almond from the group Soft Cell. Totally inappropriate booking.
