Dweezil Zappa: 50 Years Of Frank

August 3, 2017

Event Facility: FM Kirby Center
Event Address: 71 Public Square
Event Town: Wilkes-Barre
Event Phone: 570.826.1100

For the fourth time in the past five years, Dweezil Zappa will take the stage of the F.M. Kirby Center, this time bringing his Cease And Desist tour to Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, August 3 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are on sale and can be purchased at the Kirby Center Box Office, online at www.kirbycenter.org or charge by phone at (570) 826-1100. Zappa toured under the banner Zappa Plays Zappa for 10 years before changing the name to Dweezil Zappa Plays Frank Zappa last summer amid legal disputes between the guitarist and the Zappa Family Trust over trademarks and music licensing. As the family feud over copyright infringement rumbles on, Zappa is now performing his father Frank's music under the banner of the " Cease and Desist tour“ also known as "Dweezil Zappa Plays Whatever the Frank He Wants."

"I understand there may be some public confusion about all of this," Zappa said in a recent blog post. "Multiple name changes etc. I also understand that this drama may be a turn off to people. At the end of the day, I believe my father's music deserves to be heard not silenced. I will now be playing it with an even stronger resolve than ever before under the name my father gave me "Dweezil Zappa."
