'Weird Al' Yankovic is coming to Toronto next summer

Nov 14 2018, 2:12 am

He’s the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history, and now, “Weird Al” Yankovic is coming to Toronto next summer, as part of his just-announced Strings Attached Tour.

Billed as a “high-energy, rock and comedy show featuring costumes, props, a video wall, and – for the first time – a full orchestra,” the comedic spectacle will perform live at the Budweiser Stage on July 8, 2019.

Best known for his hilariously irreverent parodies of hit songs, including “Eat It,” “Like A Surgeon,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise,” “White & Nerdy,” and “Tacky,” the musician has said of this upcoming tour: “We’re pulling out all the stops for this one.
I wanted to follow up my most bare-bones tour ever with my most elaborate and extravagant tour ever.”

Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday at 10 am, through LiveNation.
