The only thing better than listening to a Weird Al Yankovic album is listening to Weird Al live and fans will be able to do that with the newly announced Alpocalypse Tour.
The U.S. Fall tour will kick off in North Las Vegas, NV on September 10th, 2011. Al is touring in support of his highest charting album (No. 9 on the Billboard 200 albums chart) and 13th studio release, Alpocalypse (Jive Records), Al and his band mates will perform songs spanning his storied three decade plus career.
Alpocalypse features the buzzworthy Lady Gaga parody "Perform This Way" as well as parodies of hits by Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, T.I. and B.o.B. featuring Bruno Mars. Al and his long-time band were aided and abetted in the recording studio by guest appearances from Taylor Hanson and The Doors' Ray Manzarek.
