Frank Zappa hologram will go on tour starting next month and on March 1st the first video with the technological image of the musician appeared, which came with a critical discourse. “I’m a person who likes to do whatever I want, even if people like it or not. And what I do is designed for those who like it, not for those who do not like it, “says Zappa’s message that it is taken from a manifesto he made against censorship.
Zappa has always been a guy who fought against the censors and, interestingly, the production of the show of his hologram is a fight with Ticketmaster because of an art that the ticket site refused to post on their social networks because it presented a penguin with human buttocks. The censored image is a tribute to the 1974 song “Penguin In Bondage” by Frank Zappa & The Mothers. The company claimed that the image is “questionable content.”

The hologram of Frank Zappa will tour on April 19 at a show in the city of Port Chester, New York. There are 9 scheduled dates in the United States and another 7 in Europe.
Eyellusion, the company behind the hologram, signed a contract with representatives of Zappa’s family to bring the artist’s image and voice to a world tour and set up the Bizarre World Of Frank Zappa Band, made up of former stage mates of the musician.
The band includes guitarists Ray White and Mike Keneally, bassist Scott Thunes, multi-instrumentalist Robert Martin, percussionist Ed Mann and drummer Joe “Vaultmeister” Travers.
“Let’s push the boundaries of what anyone has seen, holographically, on stage,” Ahmet Zappa, the artist’s son, told The Guardian newspaper earlier this year. According to him, his father was a futurist and sought to break down barriers, so taking him to the stage after being dead with the help of technology is part of that paradigm.
