Zappa Plays Zappa Add 2014 Tour Dates

Zappa Plays Zappa have added a number of North American tour dates for early 2014. The band will get going at MacEwan Hall in Calgary, AB on January 25 before making their way across Canada and then down through the Pacific Coast, Midwest an East Coasts of the United States over the next few months.

In addition to playing the shows, Zappa Plays Zappa bandleader Dweezil Zappa will also be holding “Dweezilla” guitar masterclasses prior to most of the band’s 2014 performances.

As previously reported, Zappa Plays Zappa are currently in the middle of a tour honoring the 40th anniversary of Frank Zappa’s famed Roxy & Elsewhere shows, which took place at The Roxy in Los Angeles in December of 1973. The band will commemorate the run with a special three-night run at the same venue on December 7-9.

It’s sad that dweezil is such a tool he can’t make it on his own and he has to use his dad’s music and talent and aniversary’s of his dad’s albums etc. Dweezil is a dick sorry!! Not a nice guy!

The ZPZ show in Boston this past Saturday night was absolutely amazing, and I had seen Frank live with his bands a half dozen times in my lifetime. Dweezil, Sheila, and the entire band is on fire right now, and although Roxy is not my favorite album, it was performed in most excellent fashion.
I saw the tour opener in Providence 2 months ago and it was not great but if you can catch them now that they’ve been on tour for several months, I would say “Do It”. Don’t hesitate.
And at least someone is still playing Frank’s incredible music and keeping it relevant. Someday the Dweez will be gone and so will Project Object and the other entities that keep Frank’s music alive. I for one, am happy to be able to still go out and hear “Florentine Pogen” played like it should be.
‘Nuff Said.

Dweezil and his band are amazing – song selection for the non-Roxy 2nd set was killer. Hearing Frank’s music live is really the only was to appreciate how brilliant and unique he was as a composer. Project Object and ZPZ – we are blessed to have them both. If you like Frank, you have to see these bands! Ike for President and bring back the Seahag!
