Palace Theatre Brings Back the Dead for a New Concert


“The present-day composer refuses to die.”
– Edgard Varèse

That was one of Frank Zappa’s favorite quotations, and it’s never been more appropriate than it is right now. “The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa” is coming to Albany’s Palace Theatre at 8pm on April 28, marking Greater Nippertown’s first holographic concert.

Yes, a hologram of Zappa – who died in 1993 – will be “performing” on stage alongside a live band featuring several Zappa/Mothers alum including guitarists Ray White and Mike Keneally, bassist Scott Thunes, multi-instrumentalist Robert Martin, percussionist Ed Mann and drummer Joe Travers.

Tickets go on sale at 10am Friday, priced at $34.50, $44.50, $59.50, $69.50 & $79.50.

No word on whether “Zappa” will be doing a meet-and-greet…

    Just wrong. The ridiculous promo video speaks to the lack of class of this whole sorry enterprise.

  2. Ted P says

    Agreed. This stuff is abominable. Take a look on YouTube at the Roy Orbison hologram and creep yerself right out. Too bad that Keneally, Mann, et al. need the paycheck … I get it … but man. This is gross.

    Stop worrying about who’s making money and enjoy the music!!
