The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa hologram tour has just been announced. The tour will feature new music and former band members!

The shows kick off stateside on April 19th and 7 European Zappa shows are set for May. Ahmet Zappa said in a press release via UCR,

“We’re excited to world premiere a handful of Frank Zappa compositions. These mind-melting concerts we’re putting together celebrate the music, often surreal imagery and humor synonymous with Frank.”

The band will include Ray White, Mike Keneally, Scott Thunes, Robert Martin and Joe “Vaultmeister” Travers, along with appearances by Steve Vai, Vinnie Colaiuta, Warren Cuccurullo, Ian Underwood, Napoleon Murphy Brock and others.

The show was compiled from “hours of never-before-seen Zappa performance footage” filmed in 1974, when he turned his rehearsal space into a sound stage and recorded an entire performance “seen only by the camera operators in the room.”

The hologram will be undertaken by Eyellusion, the company earlier oversaw a similar venture featuring the music of Ronnie James Dio. A complete list of announced dates, cities and venues is below. More shows will be announced. Tickets go on sale this Friday and for more, visit www.zappa.com
