The undisputed king of musical parody, Weird Al Yankovic is bringing his witty tunes down under for a five-show tour across Australia in March 2023. Planning his first trip to our sometimes-sunny shores since he was down here for Falls Festival in 2016, Weird Al will perform with his long-standing band as part of what he’s calling “The Unfortunate Return Of The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour.”

An extension of the same tour that ran through North America in 2018, the string of Australian shows will be fashioned as a more intimate evening of musical comedy which, according to a press release, focuses on “original (non-parody) fan-favourites” from the man’s illustrious 14-album catalogue.

With plenty of material to choose from, it shouldn’t matter that Yankovic hasn’t released a new album since 2014’s Mandatory Fun. Recent set lists from the satirist read like a bit of a greatest hits round-up with the likes of ‘Amish Paradise,’ ‘White & Nerdy,’ and ‘Smells Like Nirvana’ forming a closing medley.

And although Yankovic hasn’t released much new music as of late, the comedian has been trending lately off the back of a biopic – Weird: The Al Yankovic Story – with Daniel Radcliffe taking on the title role.

American stand-up comedian Emo Phillips will serve as the support act for all six shows, helping Yankovic kickstart his Australian tour at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre before heading to Adelaide’s Norwood Concert Hall, Sydney’s Enmore Theatre, Perth’s Astor Theatre and finally Brisbane’s QPAC Concert Hall.
