The planned, estate-approved Frank Zappa hologram tour has recruited its band of former Mothers for the “Bizarre World of Frank Zappa” trek. The tour kicks off later this year.
The Mothers alumni set to make special appearances on the hologram tour include longtime Zappa collaborators Steve Vai, Napoleon Murphy Brock, Ian Underwood and Joe’s Garage vets Warren Cuccurullo, Vinnie Colaiuta, Arthur Barrow and Ed Mann.
The touring unit itself boasts guitarists Ray White and Mike Keneally, bassist Scott Thunes, multi-instrumentalist Robert Martin and drummer and Zappa archivist Joe “Vaultmeister” Travers.
“As a futurist, and hologram enthusiast, Frank fearlessly broke through boundary after boundary as an artist and in honoring his indomitable spirit we’re about to do it again, 25 years after his passing,” Zappa’s son and co-trustee of the Zappa Family Trust Ahmet Zappa said in a statement.
