Dweezil Zappa is returning to St. Louis to perform at 8:00 p.m. Thursday, October 13 at The Ready Room.
His tour this year will feature music from and celebrate the 50th anniversary of Freak Out, the 1966 debut album by his father, the late guitarist and composer Frank Zappa.
However, since Dweezil (pictured), who is Frank's eldest son, has been involved in a legal battle with his three siblings over use of the Zappa name, his band can no longer use the moniker Zappa Plays Zappa, which they've toured under since 2006.
As a result, this year's series of shows is being billed as “50 Years of Frank: Dweezil Zappa Plays Whatever The F@%k He Wants — The Cease and Desist Tour.”
Tickets for Dweezil Zappa at the Ready Room are priced from $25 to $50, and will go on sale at noon this Friday, July 15 via ticketfly.com.
RIP Greg Lake
