The Bizzare World of Frank Zappa Coming to Boch Center Shubert Theatre April 26


Boston, MA (February 11, 2019) – The Boch Center and MassConcerts announced today that “The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa” hologram tour will take the Boch Center Shubert Theatre stage on Friday, April 26, 2019 at 8:00PM. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 15 at 10:00AM.

In 1974, Frank Zappa transformed his Los Angeles rehearsal space into a sound stage and cranked out some unbelievable performances seen and heard only by the camera operators in the room. The audio from these performances—locked away in the Zappa vaults for 44 years—will serve as the basis for what will be the world’s most ambitious hologram tour to date. The “can’t miss” concert spectacle is being produced in close cooperation with the Zappa Family Trust.

“The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa” hologram tour band is comprised of former Zappa bandmates, including guitarists Ray White and Mike Keneally, bassist Scott Thunes, multi-instrumentalist Robert Martin, percussionist Ed Mann, and drummer and Zappa archivist Joe “Vaultmeister” Travers.

“As a futurist, and hologram enthusiast, Frank fearlessly broke through boundary after boundary as an artist and in honouring his indomitable spirit, we’re about to do it again, 25 years after his passing,” said Ahmet Zappa, EVP of business development for hologram production company Eyellusion and co-trustee of the Zappa Family Trust. “We’re excited to world premiere a handful of Frank Zappa compositions; these mind-melting concerts we’re putting together celebrate the music, often surreal imagery and humour synonymous with Frank. We will be pushing the limits of what anyone has seen holographically on stage before in a live venue. Circumstances, objects, places and subject matter from Frank’s songs and imagination will be brought to life for the first time on stage.”

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 15 at 10:00AM and will be available at the Boch Center Box Office, or by calling (866) 348-9738.
