I sought out this site because I wanted to stay abreast of Dweezil's tour schedule. Dont see one
from Greece more than a 2000 members+friends of FRANK ZAPPA FUN CLUB GREECE wait for a new tour from you Dweezil ( last was 2006) Athens. @frankzappafanclubgreece3204 you tube.http://mellifera-action.blogspot.gr/ at this blog you can find also the events and more info about this club.Thank you Nick Agortsas,founder.
Obviously, I am disappointed that there will be no tour coming in 2023 -- however, when Dweezil set out on this enterprise way back in 2007 ( and I was there at the start and all the way through) his goal was to bring his father's music to a new generation -- and to make people aware of the genius of Frank Zappa and his music. He has more than accomplished that goal. When one looks all over the world there are credible bands playing Frank's music with integrity -- many made up of musicians who were not even alive when Frank was touring. Granted none have come close to the precision with which Dweezil approached the music -- but Zappa music is as known today as during Frank's day -- and in many cases, even more so -- and by a younger and more diverse audience (that means you ladies). Clearly during the past 3 years (the last DZ show was March 12 in Tarrytown, and yes, I was there), Dweezil has been consumed with other projects: his studio, the EVH series, new music, finishing older projects... I am sure that Dweezil has more in store for us down the road. Maybe at some point he might return to the road with more of FZ's music, and when he does, I will be there in support. But I know that Dweezil has much more in him than FZ's music and I look forward to that journey as well. I am forever grateful for FZ's impact on my life, and DZ made that so much more apparent to me through the ZPZ project -- I was able to relive the thrill of seeing FZ live, and listening to his music with the same excellence and urgency as when I heard each piece for the first time. Thanks for the past -- looking forward to the future.

Hello- Unfortunately a newly acquired teething puppy just got a hold of our beloved "Zombie Wolf" Tee shirt we purchased at your first concert in Philly when you just flew in from Reykjavik Iceland. We remember seeing Deva(with knitted hat) & Gail by the mixing board. Excellent concert as always & Then another great music extravaganza at the Kirby in Wilkes-Barre Pa.(Rutabaga). If you happen to have a Zombie Wolf Tee left over from first tour hiding in your basement we would happily purchase at any price.(Looked Everywhere) Doesn't hurt to ask. Thank You for your great music Automatic, via zammata, go with what you know..... & all you do to keep FZ Look Up in the Sky;) Your Friends Diane, Anya & Jerry
I can understand that touring with a large group, a la Mothers of Invention scale, would be a huge burden and expensive and hard in general to do.
How about a smaller size group (band) of just a few folks (and yourself of course), in small venues ? There are many Zappa plays Zappa pieces that
only require a few talented folks. (I'm thinking of Hots Rats stuff for example), not to mention you own compositions.
Then we fans could see you more often.
Dweezil, live your life-be happy and fulfilled! Will be forever indebted to you and and all the fabulous musicians in this and previous incarnations of your ZPZ band!
As far as introducing Frank's musical genius to new generations of fans...Mission Accomplished Sir!
Would be so happy to see you all perform again live, but at the same time, am eternally grateful for the four times I did see ZPZ!
There are two dates in 2022 posted on the net. July 2 in Italy and July 9 in Austria. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NpssEKCe7A
