US guitarist Dweezil Zappa will be returning to the UK this December with his Hot Rats Live! Tour. Shows will take place in London, Manchester, Southampton, Oxford, Leeds and Birmingham.
Dweezil Zappa and his “rocking teenage combo” will be performing his father Frank Zappa’s entire “Hot Rats” album in sequence, live on stage.
“We have always enjoyed presenting Frank’s music to audiences in the UK. This tour gives us the opportunity to perform ‘Hot Rats’ as well as other material from his huge body of work that is still as alive and relevant today as it was when it was composed.”
Hot Rats album played a pivotal role in establishing Frank Zappa as a composer and guitarist and was also dedicated to the new-born Dweezil upon its release in 1969.
The 50-year-old classic album will be surrounded by an assortment of other psychedelic, avant-garde odd metered toe-tappers well known to Zappa aficionados as well as being equally exciting for music fans new to his music.
