“Weird Al” Yankovic will perform in Victoria next summer


Are you ready to get weird, Victoria?

Rock comedy legend “Weird Al” Yankovic” is ready to take centre stage at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre in August to bring you some of his greatest hits live in concert.

Victoria is one of the stops on Weird Al’s 64-city “Strings Attached” North America tour, described as a “high-energy, rock and comedy show featuring costumes, props, a video wall, and – for the first time – a full orchestra.”

The Grammy award winning artist’s last tour – called the “Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour” in 2018 – was meant for his most hardcore fans and featured a set list of non-parody album tracks.

“I wanted to follow up my most bare-bones tour ever with my most elaborate and extravagant tour ever,” said Al, in a press release. “We’re pulling out all the stops for this one.”

Best known for parodies like “Eat It,” “Like A Surgeon,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise,” “White & Nerdy,” and “Tacky”, Al recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

He will also be performing in Vancouver, Abbotsford, and Calgary, as well as 61 cities in the U.S. Tickets for his tour go on sale this Friday, November 16th on his website at 10 a.m. local time.
