The planned Frank Zappa hologram tour, which has been approved by the family estate, is set to feature a number of collaborators and former members of Zappa’s band, The Mother of Invention.
Steve Vai, Napoleon Murphy Brock, Ian Underwood, Warren Cuccurullo, Vinnie Colaiuta, Arthur Barrow, and Ed Mann are among the Mothers alumni set to join the performance. The touring will consist of guitarists Ray White and Mike Keneally, bassist Scott Thunes, multi-instrumentalist Robert Martin and drummer Joe “Vaultmeister” Travers.
“As a futurist, and hologram enthusiast, Frank fearlessly broke through boundary after boundary as an artist and in honoring his indomitable spirit we’re about to do it again, 25 years after his passing,” Zappa’s son and co-trustee of the Zappa Family Trust Ahmet Zappa said in a statement.
Tour dates for the Bizarre World of Frank Zappa Tour will be announced later in the year. Head to our store for more rarities and collectables from Frank Zappa.
