Dweezil Zappa Announces UK tour titled ’50 Years Of Frank, Dweezil Zappa Plays Whatever the F@&k He Wants’

50 years on from the first Mothers Of Invention album release ‘Freak Out’, Frank Zappa’s son Dweezil and his amazing band hand-pick their favourite tracks from Frank Zappa’s extensive back catalogue.

Exposed to the music industry from an early age, Dweezil Zappa developed a strong affinity for playing the guitar and producing music. Able to learn directly from world-class guitarists such as Steve Vai and Eddie Van Halen, Dweezil quickly developed into a musical star in his own right, releasing his first single (produced by Eddie Van Halen) at the age of 12.

Since 2006, Dweezil put his own original music on hold, assembled a virtuoso band of musicians and devoted himself to performing the music of Frank Zappa extensively at venues across the world, the only official act to do so since his father’s death in 1993.

In 2009, they were awarded a Grammy Award for best rock instrumental performance for their version of ‘Peaches en Regalia’. They were nominated in the same category in 2010 for their performance of ‘The Deathless Horsie’.

Witness Dweezil and his band bringing his father’s musical legacy to life on stage, fifty years since The Mothers Of Invention first toured the UK.
