Parody Song King "Weird Al" Yankovic's Orchestral Tour is Coming to Southwestern Ohio Next Year

Tickets to see Yankovic's Strings Attached concert at Fraze Pavilion this coming summer (featuring the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra) go on sale Dec. 1 at 10 a.m.

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."
