Weird Al announces a new tour. No parody songs.

“Weird Al” Yankovic has announced that his 2018 North American tour will be a “no frills” one that will feature obscure songs and no props, costumes, or video screens. It’s called “The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour.”


In Champaign Mar 30th, and at the Vic on April 6 and 7.

Met Al before. Holy horsefeathers is he a nice man. Incredibly gracious to fans.

Anyone else pretty disappointed in the direction St. Vincent went with the last two albums? She's still enormously talented, beautiful, and cool as horsefeathers, but I can't get into this whole industrial vibe with her.

She's always been someone I feel like I should like her albums a lot, yet her music has always left me pretty cold. This new one especially just feels like a collection of genre exercises, like, "hey, look how many different styles of music I can do while generically singing about how people are fake and plastic and like money and stuff!"

Yep. Even Strange Mercy is pretty detached lyrically/tonally despite being awesome, in my opinion. Still way more PJ Harvey than...whatever she is now

It doesn't help that my TV app version of YouTube wants to continually play her new singles before everything I watch, too. But you're dead on in how these last two albums are a really odd swerve to keep going. You do it once? OK, tried something new...but what's the point of going to this well again? Who the heck is this album even for?
