Includes a ‘Grave to Stage’ set with Frank himself performing with the band.
‘Close your eyes for a second and you could be at a gig at the height of Frank’s fame in the Seventies‘ – The Independent
Following the success of last year’s Zappa plays Zappa concert as part of the Roundhouse’s 70th birthday celebrations for Frank Zappa, Dweezil Zappa and The Zappa Family Trust are delighted to bring the show to the UK in November and December 2011 for a 13 date UK tour.
These spellbinding performances will see Zappa’s eldest son Dweezil and his band ‘Zappa Plays Zappa’ performing the classic 1974 album ‘Apostrophe’ in sequence and in it’s unmitigated entirety, alongside a career spanning selection of Zappa’s classic material
In a final twist, the performance will also feature a section – from grave to stage – in which Frank himself will perform with the band via synchronized audio/video technology using unreleased video footage. As Dweezil says, ‘Not only will we be performing with Frank once again via the technological wonderment of enhanced video during the live performance, but we will also be performing the works from one of his most well known albums. That’s right, ‘Apostrophe’, played in it’s album running order. It’s always been one of my favourites and it’s certainly a fan favourite as well.’
