29 years ago today, Frank Zappa made his final concert appearance in Portland, Maine.  On March 15, 1988 Frank’s US Tour stopped at the Civic Center. We were very fortunate along with the thousands of other Blimpsters to witness this very special night as sadly, 5 years later he was gone from prostate cancer.

This was Zappa’s third concert at the CCCC. It will forever be in our memory as the time we heard the coolest cover of Stairway to Heaven ever! Here it is in Vienna a couple months after the last Portland show.

Join us tonight at 6:20 for live Frank Zappa on the WBLM Mini-Concert!
