After his amazing show in 2009, Dweezil Zappa and his “rocking teenage combo” have agreed to return to the Rockhal in Luxembourg on 22 November 2012 in order to perform a special selection of tracks celebrating the seminal decades of his father's back catalogue. Once again, Frank Zappa’s incredible career will be in the focus with material the prodigal son has never performed before.
Dweezil and Zappa Plays Zappa have performed to audiences worldwide since 2006, receiving rave reviews as they go. In 2009, they were awarded a prestigious Grammy award for best rock instrumental performance for their version of “Peaches en Regalia” and were nominated in the same category in 2010 for their performance of “The Deathless Horsie”. Dweezil, who is accompanied by a host of hand-picked young musical talents from around the world, brings his father’s musical legacy to life on stage and is the only official act to do so since Frank Zappa’s death in 1993.
The new Decades Tour follows on from the success of the 2011 Apostrophe tour and Dweezil’s two CD releases “Live In The Moment” (a double CD featuring improvised guitar solos from past tours) and the “F.O.H.” double CD featuring a collection of raw and unedited live performances of a selection of Zappa songs performed by Dweezil and his Zappa Plays Zappa band.
This time, Dweezil will be playing material from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s and include music from classic Zappa albums such as “Joe’s Garage”, “We’re Only in It for the Money”, “Weasels Ripped My Flesh” “Freak Out” & “Hot Rats”. The new show will also include a selection of Frank Zappa’s iconic material, which Dweezil has never performed before.
As a cult musician, free artist and highly talented guitarist, Frank Zappa has left deep marks in the world of music. Nearly 20 years after his death, the music of the incomparable Frank Zappa lives on through his son. Don’t miss Zappa Plays Zappa, taking place at the Rockhal in Luxembourg on 22 November 2012.
