So the tour is obviously called "Choice Cuts" not "Prime Cuts"
Not sure why I thought it was Prime, hence the error in the read title.

Dweezil Zappa recently wrapped the North American leg of his Choice Cuts Tour. At one of the tour’s stops, Zappa spent some time detailing his equipment setup for a newly posted Rig Tour video.

Zappa showcased his guitar rig for Nick Bowcott of Fort Wayne, Indiana-based musical instrument retailer Sweetwater Sound. The pair toured Zappa’s gear ahead of a show at The Vogue in Indianapolis. Zappa goes into a deep dive on his Sweetwater-repaired Gibson Roxy SG guitar, the type of strings he plays with, his use of dual Fractal Audio Axe Effects units, and all the various pedals and other effects his utilizes onstage.

Zappa talks about his father Frank Zappa’s rigs and throughout the 30-minute video demonstrates the various components that makeup Dweezil’s eclectic tone. Watch his Rig Tour here: https://www.jambase.com/article/dweezil ... s-rig-tour

This week, Dweezil Zappa announced an extensive run of North American fall dates that will extend his ongoing Choice Cuts! World Tour through mid-December. The shows will continue to see Dweezil and his band play “a collection of the meatiest tracks” and “boldest compositions” from the extensive catalog of his father, the illustrious guitarist, composer, and bandleader Frank Zappa.

Dweezil also recently announced a detente with his siblings and the Zappa Family Trust after a highly publicized and contentious feud over the usage of their father’s music and trademarks which lasted for multiple years.

You can see a full list of announced fall tour dates below.

Yes, we've known for some time now. Thanks for the reminder, Ghosty!
I want my Hollywood show ticket mailed to me. They're only selling electronic tickets right now; so I'll have to wait a bit.

^^I’m open to it. Are you suggesting Monterey only or in addition to Napa? I should probably only commit to one show at this point.

I’m excellent at playing it by ear. As a matter of fact, I originated the two ear tapping technique which seems so commonplace today.

Can I ask anyone who saw this tour how long the show lasted? Was thinking of the Harrah’s show in November but the last time we saw Deeezil there the venue only allowed them to play for so long- at least that’s what Ben told us. I assume they want people to spend more time gambling.

Anyway I see this show starts at 9 PM so that wouldn’t leave much more than 2 hours for them to play. This set list looks awesome and I’m curious just how much of it we’d be missing.

Dog Meat- Yes, casino shows are usually shorter for the reasons you mention. The AC show will be 1 hr 45 min.
