Dates Announced for "The Bizarre World Of Frank Zappa" Hologram Tour

Somehow this feels pretty spot on. The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa will be touring the Northeast and Europe with a mix of live artists and a hologram Frank Zappa playing along.

Glide has the full details where Ahmet Zappa discusses his fathers love of holograms and 3-D technology. This might seem like a money grab (and that is part of it) but Zappa was at the forefront of a lot of mediums (check out the clay at the end of "Stinkfoot" below) and this doesn't seem as blatant.

The touring unit boasts guitarists Ray White and Mike Keneally, bassist Scott Thunes, multi-instrumentalist Robert Martin, percussionist Ed Mann, and drummer and ZAPPA archivist Joe “Vaultmeister” Travers

Live dates are below and to get us psyched for the hologram images how about some live video of Franks and company. Tickets go on sale Friday.
