It’s about to get weird (and funny) at Northern Quest Resort & Casino on September 13 when the never-more-popular
"Weird Al" Yankovic takes to the stage as part of his epic international tour
, dubbed the Mandatory World Tour.
For 30 years, this dude has sold millions of records parodying pop songs (think “Amish Paradise” and “White & Nerdy”
), yet 2014’s Mandatory Fun
was Yankovic’s first album to reach No. 1 on the Billboard
Charts. In fact, it was the first comedy album to top the charts since 1963. Taking full advantage of his newfound success with the selfie generation, Yankovic is getting back on the road.
Expect the usual amounts of accordion playing and over-the-top eyebrow usage at the upcoming Airway Height show, but there should be plenty of surprises too. Tickets have not yet been released for sale.
Check out this ridiculous song about the wonders of foil from his latest record:
