Let’s face it, “Weird Al” Yankovic fans: If you’ve seen one “Weird Al” show, you’ve seen ’em all. Well, unless you saw last year’s “Ill-Advised Vanity” shows at Pabst Theater, which featured oodles of deep cuts and original songs. And, well, unless you plan to see the just-announced “Strings Attached” show coming to Miller High Life Theatre Saturday, July 27, which will feature Al’s “usual big production—costumes, props, video wall—supported by his band, background singers, and…a full symphony orchestra!” YES.
“I wanted to follow up my most bare-bones tour ever with my most elaborate and extravagant tour ever,” Yankovic says in a press release. “We’re pulling out all the stops for this one.” Do we smell another Weird Al Week here at Milwaukee Record? Yes, yes we do.
Per the rest of the press release:
“Weird Al” Yankovic is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history, earning four Grammy Awards® and fifteen career nominations. The legendary musical satirist follows his sold-out 2018 tour of intimate venues—where he played deep cuts for his hardcore fans—with his biggest show ever. Weird Al is back to playing the hits and classics with his Strings Attached tour, a high-energy rock and comedy production, coming to Milwaukee for one night only, featuring his original band, costumes, props, a video wall and—for the first time—background singers and a full symphony orchestra.
