Palais Theatre | Melbourne, VI
Advertisement“Weird Al” Yankovic burst onto the scene over four decades ago and never looked back. Making his first concert excursion across international waters in over eight years, the world’s foremost musical satirist and five-time Grammy-winner foregoes his usual high-octane, big-production show with The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, an intimate evening of musical comedy focusing on original (non-parody) fan favourites from his 14-album catalogue. The tour marks Weird Al’s long-anticipated return to the world stage with his original band of four decades, where they have performed at such iconic venues as the Hollywood Bowl, Radio City Music Hall and Forest Hills Stadium, and most recently at The Kennedy Center in Washington DC and New York City’s Carnegie Hall. This tour is a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with this legendary performer.
Opening the show is Al’s long-time friend, the legendary comedian Emo Philips.
“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 three artists to have had their own Top 40 singles in each of the last four decades, the other two being Michael Jackson and Madonna. On August 27, 2018 the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce awarded Weird Al with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
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 The Vidiot From UHF.
