It’s Gonna Be Exciting!

Remember the company responsible for the holographic Ronnie James Dio tour? Well, they’re at it again. Eyeillusion recently revealed details of the upcoming hologram tour called “The Bizarre World Of Frank Zappa.” It kicks off this April 19 with nine dates in the US and will have seven shows for the UK leg on May. It will be based on hours of never-before-seen performance footage in 1974. It was when Zappa transformed his rehearsal space into a sound stage.

All these have been locked away in the Zappa vaults for 44 years!

“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 humour synonymous with Frank.” — Ahmet Zappa

Some of the musicians in the touring unit include Ray White, Mike Keneally, Scott Thunes, Robert Martin, and Joe “Vaultmeister” Travers.

“My father and I actively discussed 3D and ‘holography’ and it was a concept he actively engaged in. He actually devoted half a chapter of his The Real Frank Zappa Book to this subject. This is a love letter and a journey celebrating the genius artistry of Frank Zappa. On a personal note, I feel like I am finishing something my father started years ago. And let’s not forget, Frank himself will be rocking his fans, alongside his bandmates like nobody’s business.” — Ahmet Zappa
