Dubbed ‘The bizarre world of Frank Zappa’, the clip which you can view below, shows a hologram of the psychedelic legend, who died in 1993, saying: “I’m a person who likes to do what he wants to do whether people like it or not and what I do is designed for people who like it, not for people who don’t.”
Zappa always fought against censorship throughout his career, particularly for artists’ rights. He even appeared before Congress in September 1985, and later famously volunteered to slap his albums with a “warning guarantee” label.
The tour will feature hours of never-before-seen Zappa performance footage from the early seventies.
This footage, locked away in the Zappa vaults for 44 years, will be juxtaposed with “outrageous visuals that offer a striking view into his complex musical works.”
Joining Zappa’s hologram on stage will be longtime Zappa players including Ray White, Mike Keneally, Scott Thunes, Robert Martin, and Joe ‘Vaultmeister’ Travers.
The hologram will feature on a number of UK dates including the London Palladium in May. You can get tickets here.
