“WEIRD AL” YANKOVIC WITH SPECIAL GUEST EMO PHILIPS

Date: June 6th, 2018

Time: 8pm show, 7pm doors

Admission: $59.50-69.50 +fees
VIP Meet and Greet: $256.50 +fees

Age Restrictions: All ages welcome

In 2018 “Weird Al” Yankovic will launch The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour – a stripped-down, no-frills production.

After his highly successful Mandatory World Tour (200 dates including the Hollywood Bowl and Radio City Music Hall), Yankovic decided that he wanted to take a break from the high-octane theatrics that he’s known for and go bare-bones – no costumes, no props, no video screens… just Al and his band of three decades hanging out on stage, playing music. Because of the nature of the show, Yankovic will be performing exclusively in intimate theatres and settings.

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.
