“WEIRD AL” YANKOVIC – RETURN OF THE MANDATORY WORLD TOURs
Call your brother, your sister, your high school buddies and your coworkers for this one, because when the King of Parody hits the RiverEdge Park stage in all his curly-haired, accordion-playing glory, it’s going be one big party at the Park.
“Weird Al” Yankovic is the best-selling comedy recording artist in history. His mind-blowing ability to parody world-famous musicians like Michael Jackson, Billy Joel, U2 and Madonna launched Al into superstardom himself, and after almost 40 years of leaving millions of fans of every age in stitches, he’s still going strong. His 2015 studio album Mandatory Fundebuted on Billboard’s Top 200 at #1, marking the first time a comedy album debuted with top marks in Billboard history.
Weird Al’s fame doesn’t solely spawn from his hilarious and wildly-popular musical style, though. From chart-topping albums to Comedy Central, MTV and VH1 specials to perpetually viral videos (his 2006 “White & Nerdy” music video garnered over 150 million hits on YouTube) to becoming a New York Times Bestselling Author, Weird Al is a true pop culture icon.
