Zappa Plays Zappa celebrates 40th anniversary of "Roxy & Elsewhere" with club run
Zappa Plays Zappa will commemorate the 40th anniversary of Frank Zappa's "Roxy & Elsewhere" with a North American club tour this fall.
The tribute band, helmed by Frank's son Dweezil Zappa, will kick off the trek with a Sept. 3 performance in Providence, RI, and move across the eastern portion of the U.S. through early November. The itinerary concludes with a three-night stand at Los Angeles' Roxy Theatre, the same club where "Roxy & Elsewhere" was recorded in 1973.
The Grammy-winning Zappa Plays Zappa will perform the entire album at each show, according to a press release.
"I think my father's music deserves the chance to be discovered by a contemporary audience," Dweezil said in a press release. "His creativity and discipline is inspirational."
