The undisputed king of the comedy song, Weird Al Yankovic is changing up his game, bringing something entirely fresh to his next stint on the road. Entitled 'The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour', Al is swapping his theatrical and multimedia hijinks for something more MTV Unplugged. With a set list of deep cuts, older creations, and almost no parody songs, it might not be for everyone, but to the die-hard fans - this is your time!
Low key, with scaled back production values, this is a more intimate way to experience Al in a brand new light. Each show will bring something a little different to the table, with Emo Philip becoming Al's first ever opening act.
If this doesn't sound like your metaphorical cup of tea, don't worry, Al promises this isn't the end of his comedy tours, just a new and exciting break from the norm.
As a leader of pop culture parody, Weird Al has sold more comedy recordings than any other artist in history. In a career spanning nearly three decades, he has amassed 30 Gold and Platinum albums, 7 Gold and Platinum-certified home videos and 3 Grammy Awards.
