About Dweezil Zappa Live at New Theatre, Oxford
Dweezil Zappa and his “rocking teenage combo” will be performing his father Frank Zappa’s entire “Hot Rats” album in sequence live on stage as part of his upcoming 2019 tour.
Dweezil has long undertaken a mission to re-acquaint the world with the sights and sounds of his infamous father and the incredibly talented group of musicians revive Frank’s music in a fresh context, whilst keeping true to Zappa Snr’s unique and impeccable sonic heritage.
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.
Sunday 08 December – 7:00 pm
