AEG Presents Weird Al Yankovic
Tickets are $60.50 (very limited amount)
“Weird Al” Yankovic is the biggest selling comedy recording artist of all time. Few would have guessed that Yankovic, who as an awkward, accordion-playing teenager got his start sending in homemade tapes to the Dr. Demento Radio Show, would go on to enjoy a varied and successful career that is now entering its fourth decade.
Over that time he has won 3 Grammys (with 12 nominations), racked up 31 Gold and Platinum Albums, and won countless awards and accolades for Weird Al classics like “Eat It,” “Like a Surgeon,” “Fat,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise” and more. Yankovic is also well-known for his cult-hit feature film UHF (1989), his ate ‘90s CBS Saturday morning series The Weird Al Show and the numerous AL-TV specials that he’s made for MTV and VH1 over the years. His previous album Straight Outta Lynwood (2006), spawned the Billboard Top 10 single “White & Nerdy,” the video of which spent two months at #1 on iTunes and garnered over 100 million hits online.
He is touring in support of his first full-length studio album in nearly five years entitled Alpocalypse, the highest-charting album of his career debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200, and featuring the Lady Gaga parody “Perform This Way”.
