“Weird Al” Yankovic burst onto the scene over three decades ago and never looked back. For the first time in his storied career, the world’s foremost musical satirist and four-time Grammy-winner foregoes his usual high-octane, big-production show for an intimate evening of music, focusing on original (non-parody) songs from his 14-album catalog. After his 2016 world tour, including venues such as the Hollywood Bowl and Radio City Music Hall, this is a rare opportunity to get up-close and personal with this legendary performer.
Drawing from a back catalogue of 14 studio albums, Weird Al promises to deliver a different set list every night - no two shows along the tour will be the same. And rather than focusing on the hits from his career, the show will feature Yankovic’s non-parody material – the deep cuts and obscure tracks.
According to Al: “After 35 years of big productions, I just wanted to take it down a few notches and have a little musical palate cleanser. This show will be loose, unpredictable, and maybe a bit sloppy – we’ll be making it up as we go along!”
Opening the show each night will be Al’s long-time friend (and UHF cast member), the legendary comedian Emo Philips.
