'Weird Al' Yankovic Announces 10 Shows In Canada
“Weird Al” Yankovic has announced 10 Canadian dates on his 2022 tour – but don’t count on hearing his famous parodies like “Eat It” or “Like a Surgeon.”
A message on Yankovic’s website warns: “This is a scaled-down tour with limited production (no costumes, props, or video screens) … and Al’s setlist will be comprised almost entirely of his original (non-parody) songs.”
The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour is a sequel to his 2018 tour and consists of 133 shows between April and October.
“I’ve loved doing every single incarnation of my live show, but honestly the Vanity tour is the most fun I’ve ever had on stage,” said Yankovic, 62, in a release. “So I’ve been dying to get back out there and torture everybody with it once again!”
Comedian Emo Philips will be the opening act.
