Parody song master "Weird Al" Yankovic has announced his 2019 Strings Attached Tour, and among its 64 North American dates is a July 3 show at Kettering, Ohio's Fraze Pavilion.
As the tour's title suggests, Yankovic is performing with orchestras on the tour. In a press release, the tour is described as "a high-energy, rock and comedy show featuring costumes, props, a video wall, and — for the first time — a full orchestra."
For the Fraze show, he will be joined by the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra.
This year, Yankovic's Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour was a more stripped down affair and included a rotating setlist that featured deep cuts and non-parody songs never played live before. This time, he's going in a somewhat opposite direction.
“I wanted to follow up my most bare-bones tour ever with my most elaborate and extravagant tour ever," Yankovic said in a press release. "We’re pulling out all the stops for this one.”
Tickets for Weird Al's Fraze show are $41.50 (lawn and terrace) and $61.50 in advance and go on sale Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. Click here for more show info.
Yankovic's most recent contribution to the weirdo pop cultural zeitgeist was his starring role in Weezer's video for their cover of Toto's "Africa."
