Madison, WI (December 2, 2012)
Dweezil Zappa’s ZPZ sold-out the Barrymore Theatre in Madison, Wi was a mixture of veteran and new Frank devotees.
A sign on the door of the Barrymore stated that seating was changed to standing to allow for dancing via Dweezil Zappa’s request.
Dweezil Zappa suggested those who wanted to sit to go behind the soundboard or in the balcony.
The 45-minute soundcheck covered snippets of songs to be played during the performance. Dweezil had his dad’s Gibson in his dressing room and stated he would be playing the guitar.
Zappa Plays Zappa took the stage at the Barrymore at 8:00 P.M. The front of the stage area was packed. Dweezil began with welcoming the audience and said he would like to begin with something from Frank’s “My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mother.” After “Eat That Question,” ZPZ followed with “Hungry Freaks Daddy” and “Teenage Prostitute.”
ZPZ covered 26 songs and played well past the scheduled 90-minute show.
