DWEEZIL ZAPPA 50 years of Hot Rats

Son of infamous musician Frank Zappa, Dweezil Zappa will be performing his father’s 1969 album Hot Rats when touring Australia for Bluesfest in 2020. Stopping locally at the Astor Theatre on FridayApril 17, 2020, Dweezil Zappa will be celebrating his Father’s legacy with the people of Perth.

Now, in celebration of 50 years since the album’s release (also the year Dweezil was born), the Hot Rats live tour features his father’s 1969 album in its entirety. Dweezil has long undertaken a mission to celebrate the sounds of his father in a fresh context whilst keeping true to Zappa Senior’s unique and impeccable sonic heritage.

The Hot Rats album played a pivotal role in establishing Frank Zappa as a composer and guitarist and was also dedicated to the newborn Dweezil upon its release. The 50-year old classic album will be surrounded by an assortment of other psychedelic, avant-garde odd-metered musical marvels, making this not only a show for both Zappa aficionados but a great entry point for a new generations of fans as well.

Dweezil Zappa plays Hot Rats at the Astor Theatre on  April 17, 2020. Tickets available Monday, November 25 from
