THE UNFORTUNATE RETURN OF THE RIDICULOUSLY SELF-INDULGENT, ILL-ADVISED VANITY TOUR
Almost four years after his first foray into unfamiliar concert territory with his highly-acclaimed
Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, “Weird Al” Yankovic is pressing his luck again,
this time with The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity
Tour. The tour marks Weird Al’s long-anticipated return to the concert stage after his hugely
successful Strings Attached Tour in 2019 where he performed each night alongside a full
Once again drawing from his back catalogue of 14 studio albums, Weird Al promises to deliver a
different set list every night, with no two shows the same. As before, rather than focusing on
the hits from his career, the show will feature Yankovic’s non-parody material – the somewhat
more obscure pastiches and original songs that have largely escaped the pop culture radar but
are adored by his long-time fans. And like the last Vanity Tour, he is leaving behind the
high-octane theatrics that he’s known for and going bare-bones – no costumes, no props, no
video screens… just Al and his band of almost four decades in smaller, more intimate venues,
hanging out on stage, playing music.
“Weird Al” Yankovic is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist of all time. A five-time
Grammy winner, his 2014 release Mandatory Fun was the first comedy album in history to
debut at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200. He is one of only five artists to have had Top 40 singles in
each of the last four decades, the other four being Michael Jackson, Madonna, U2, and Kenny
G. On August 27, 2018 the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce awarded Weird Al with a star on
the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Legendary comedian Emo Philips has performed over 7000 stand-up comedy shows across the
globe, including a two-week theater run in London’s West End. Career highlights include his
acclaimed comedy album E=MO Squared and the hour-long HBO special Emo Philips Live at the
Hasty Pudding Theatre. Emo is especially proud, however, of when he got to demonstrate the
proper use of a table saw to Weird Al in the film UHF.
At the artist’s request, proof of Covid-19 vaccination, or negative testing within 72 hours of show plus matching photo ID will be required to obtain entry to the venue for this event.
