Zappa Plays Zappa To Honor One Size Fits All Anniversary

Advertisement
Earlier this month, guitarist Dweezil Zappa announced plans to record an album of original material, but that doesn’t mean the end of Zappa Plays Zappa. In fact, the Dweezil-led band will not only celebrate their 10th anniversary next year, they will also honor the 40th anniversary of Frank’s landmark 1975 album One Size Fits All by performing the LP in its entirety on a 2015 world tour.

One Size Fits All features 15 tracks including beloved classics “Inca Roads,” “San Ber’dino,” “Andy” and two different versions of “Sofa.” Zappa Plays Zappa will play additional “Zappa music” at each performance. There’s no word yet whether that will include any of the original music Dweezil is currently working on.

The first leg of the tour, which takes place in North America with a focus on the South and Midwest will be announced later today (UPDATE: full list now below). Master classes taught by Dweezil wil also be offered at many tour stops. Tickets for most shows go on sale this Friday, November 21 at 10 a.m. local time.
