The latest artist to be immortalised in hologram is set to be Frank Zappa, 25 years after his death.
While no dates have been set, the Zappa Family Trust are currently looking at setlist option, with Adrian Below, Steve Vai, Mike Kenneally and others said to be on board. There is also talk of a performance of Joes Garage: The Musical, with the Zappa hologram starring as the Central Scrutinizer.
“I’m thrilled that Frank Zappa will finally be going back out on tour playing his most well-known music as well as some rare and unheard material,” Zappa’s son, Ahmet said in a press release, also expressing excitement at other Zappa family members potentially taking part. “How radical would it be to have Moon singing Valley Girl onstage with Frank? Or to see Dweezil side by side with our father playing dueling guitar solos? That would be my greatest wish, and I look forward to bringing this special celebration of Frank’s legacy to a town near you.”
