Frank Zappa’s Holographic Dreams Come True in ‘Bizarre World’ Live Show: ‘The Goal Is to Literally Please Everybody’
Billboard writer, Morgan Enos, gives the inside scoop about the succesful opening night of “The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa” tour, which kicked off at the Capitol Theater, in Port Chester, NY on 4/19!
It’s one hell of a spectacle — and it couldn’t have been pulled off without old and new friends. The show is a joint effort between the Frank Zappa Family Trust and Eyellusion, a hologram production company that is simultaneously reuniting the late Ronnie James Dio with his Dio bandmates.
It’s all in goofy, harmless fun; The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa is a tour-de-force that unhinges the lid of its subject’s limitless imagination. After umpteen floating eyeballs, gyrating monsters and paint-peeling guitar solos, the crowd left the Count Basie Center pleasantly bewildered — and audibly satisfied. True Zappa heads wouldn’t have it any other way.
