The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour will begin in February 2018
Weird Al Yankovic will embark on a stripped-down, no frills production scheduled to run through June 2018. The new tour comes after the comedic musician’s 200-date Mandatory World Tour.
The Ill-Advised tour will “take a break from the high-octane theatrics that he’s known for and go bare-bones – no costumes, no props, no video screens” and simply feature Yankovic with his band playing music. Yankovic will play smaller theaters to accommodate the intimate nature of the show and he promises a different show every night.
“After 35 years of big productions, I just wanted to take it down a few notches and have a little musical palate cleanser. This show will be loose, unpredictable, and maybe a bit sloppy – we’ll be making it up as we go along!” Yankovic said in a statement.
Opening the show each night will be Yankovic’s longtime friend and legendary comedian Emo Philips. Tickets go on sale Oct. 20 at 10am local time.
