The company, which recently signed a contract with representatives of Frank Zappa’s family to bring the artist’s image and voice to a world tour, said that the band that will follow the technological performance, Bizarre World Of Frank Zappa, is formed by former comrades 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.

At the end of last year Eyellusion released a promotional video about the tour for Zappa’s official YouTube channel. The interesting thing is that this film brings an audio with the voice of Frank Zappa talking about hologram.

Take a look:

Zappa died, after his long battle with prostate cancer, on December 4, 1993, 17 days before his 53rd birthday at his home with his wife and children by his side. At a private ceremony the following day, his body was buried in a grave at the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery, in Los Angeles. The grave is unmarked. On December 6, his family publicly announced that “Composer Frank Zappa left for his final tour just before 6:00 pm on Saturday”.
