Addressing the specifics of the 70th birthday tour, Dweezil posted this announcement on zappaplayszappa.com:
Hello Friends,??Has it really been 70 years? In honor of my dad's 70th birthday, which would have been December 21st 2010, we are celebrating with a special Dweezil/Zappa Plays Zappa musical tour in the fall 2010. One day is not enough so we are extending the birthday festivities from November through December.??Not only we will be performing with him once again via the technological wonderment of enhanced video during live performance but we will also be performing the works from one of his most well known albums. That's right, Apostrophe ('), played in it's album running order. It's always been one of my favorites and it's certainly a fan favorite as well. ??And, but, also we will be adding more new material that has not yet performed by us as a band on any previous tour. More textures, more tunes, more aural excitement! Come help us celebrate starting in November.??Regards, DZ
Is there any NorCal Zappa fan worth his or her weight in zircon encrusted tweezers that is not going to attend?
