Performing with a historic new lineup and reimagined repertoire as part of their 2011 world tour, RTV IV will be joined by Zappa Plays Zappa, the musical tribute to Frank Zappa.

The all-star quintet brings to the stage incredible depth of creative collaboration, debuting all-new compositions as well as a vibrant combination of Return to Forever classics and highlights from each member's solo repertoire.
