“Weird Al” Yankovic Unveils “Mandatory World Tour” 2016

You know him from countless humorous videos which include “Amish Paradise”, “Eat It”, “Fat” and “I Lost On Jeopardy” among many others and with my recent presentations about some legendary rockers touring runs, I felt now it was time to send for the clowns or is that send in the clown with the touring dates for the one and the only inimitable “Weird Al” Yankovic. This summer the comedic musician will embark on his “Mandatory World Tour” and be making stops at a whole lot of places in support of his “Mandatory Fun” album.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve had so many side-splitting laughs thanks to “Weird Al” over the years but have never before seen him in concert so I am going to try my best to be there at the regional show (which is actually also the tour closer) at the beautiful Radio City Music Hall. It’s a long way away of course but sure seems to be the kind of show one can look forward to after a long hot summer. Now you already know what I think about this one but what do you say? Is this the kind of thing you will support and let some laughs loose? Let me know in the comments.

One thought on ““Weird Al” Yankovic Unveils “Mandatory World Tour” 2016”

  1. He’s great. I saw him live and he started out “If you loved last years’ show, you are going to love this one, because It’s the exact same show”!
