“Weird Al” Yankovic announces ‘Strings Attached’ tour for next year

Singer/songwriter “Weird Al” Yankovic has confirmed a lengthy U.S. tour for 2019 being called ‘Strings Attached.’

Here’s more info via Yankovic‘s official site: “Al is back to playing the hits and classics for this tour, with his usual big production – costumes, props, video wall – supported by his band, background singers, and… a full symphony orchestra!”

Previously speaking about the tour, Weird Al states, “We’re going directly from my most scaled-down, low-key show ever (this year’s Ridiculously Self-Indulgent Ill-Advised Vanity Tour) to my most full-blown, over-the-top extravaganza ever … No, we’re not cramming an orchestra on our bus – it’ll be a different orchestra in every city. Sometimes it will be a “branded” local orchestra (like, say, the Colorado Symphony), and other times we’ll basically just be putting together our own orchestra with local musicians. And yes, we’re back to PLAYING THE HITS.”

The run takes on NYC for a show at Forest Hills Stadium on July 20, featuring the Queens Symphony Orchestra [TIX]. The tour also hits NY venues in Syracuse and Lewiston, plus a few PA markets. Check out all dates below.

In more news, Al and comedy trio The Lonely Island recently took part in an episode of “Carpool Karaoke,” singing Yankovic‘s hit song “Fat.” Watch the clip after the dates.
