Weird Al To Play With The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra

(Classic Rock) Weird Al Yankovic says he'll play with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra at his shows there in July. The parody singer says that, though the concerts at the venue will be shorter than usual, fans will get to hear him perform with a string ensemble for the first time.

Weird Al tells Rolling Stone: "We're doing a shorter set because the Bowl will not let you go over. I think 84 minutes is the cutoff. It's going to be a truncated set, but on the positive side, the show is with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.

"So, as we speak, there is an arranger that is arranging my set for them. I'm extremely excited about it. I'm going to be playing all the hits with an orchestra. I never imagined Smells Like Nirvana with strings before, but you're gonna hear it that night." Read more and see the dates for the tour here.
