'Weird Al' Yankovic has date with Duluth
Parody master is leaving the likes of 'I Want a New Duck' at home, though.
DULUTH -- "Weird Al" Yankovic will bring his "Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour" to the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center this summer, according to the longtime comedy-singer's website.
But he's leaving the likes of "Eat It" and the "Captain Underpants" theme song at home. This tour showcases original non-parody tunes.
Yankovic plays July 11 at Symphony Hall — one of 133 shows planned for the tour. Tickets go on sale Dec. 10 at Ticketmaster outlets , including the DECC box office. Emo Phillips opens.
In the past, the musician's shows have included props and videos. In 2018, he tested a show with songs like "Nature Trail to Hell," "Dog Seat Dog" and "You Don't Love Me Anymore," according to Rolling Stone.
Yankovic last played the DECC in 2007. In 2000, a reported 2,000 people showed up to see him perform at the DECC's auditorium, a performance that included 11 costume changes. A News Tribune reviewer credited him with bridging the audience age gap.
