The biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history, earning four Grammys and fifteen career nominations, “Weird Al” Yankovic is basically a walking meme.
If you didn't already know, he is best known for his hilariously irreverent parodies of hit songs, including “Eat It,” “Like A Surgeon,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise,” and “White and Nerdy,” and he just announced his 2019 Strings Attached Tour.
According to a recent press release, we can anticipate the performance to be “a high-energy, rock and comedy show featuring costumes, props, a video wall, and – for the first time – a full orchestra.”
Contrast to 2018’s Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, which was more of an intimate, scaled-down show that showcased a rotating setlist of semi-obscure, deep-cut, non-parody album tracks, 2019 Strings Attached Tour is said to showcase Yankovic's hits and classics – but this time his band will be supported every night by background singers and an entire symphony orchestra – which actually sounds pretty amazing.
“I wanted to follow up my most bare-bones tour ever with my most elaborate and extravagant tour ever,” Yankovic said in a press release. “We’re pulling out all the stops for this one.”
The tour includes a stop at the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio on June 16, 2019.
