Weird Al Yankovic is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history, earning four Grammys and fifteen career nominations. Now, the legendary musical satirist follows his sold-out 2018 tour of intimate venues – where he played deep cuts for his hardcore fans – with his biggest show ever. Check it out at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion on Saturday, June 15th!
Weird Al is back to playing the hits and classics with his Strings Attached tour, a high-energy rock and comedy production featuring his original band, costumes, props, a video wall and, for the first time, background singers and a full symphony orchestra. Whether you’ve long been a fan of Weird Al or simply enjoy a good laugh, this show is a must-see!
The foremost song parodist of the MTV era, Weird Al Yankovic carried the torch of musical humor more proudly and more successfully than any performer since Allan Sherman. In the world of novelty records – a genre noted for its extensive back catalog of flashes-in-the-pan and one-hit wonders – Yankovic was king, scoring smash after smash over the course of an enduring career which found him topically mocking everything.
Yankovic is best known for sending up the biggest hits in the world with his own hit parodies, including “Eat It,” “Like A Surgeon,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise,” “White & Nerdy,” and “Word Crimes.” Yankovic’s Mandatory Fun (2014) made history as the first comedy album ever to debut at #1 on Billboard.
