the unfortunate return of the ridiculously self- indulgent ill-advised vanity tour
The undisputed king of the comedy song goes low key once more as he serves up another outing of 2018's The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour. Hitting an eye-watering 133 venues across the country, the show drops the props and theatrics to offer another side of Yankovich and his band outside of the parody song genre. Whilst there may be a few fan-favorite comedy tunes, Al and Co are more focused on playing some of their original material, deep album cuts, and the like. So if you're looking for belly laughs and 'Amish Paradise', it's probably best to wait until the next tour.
As a leader of pop-culture parody, Weird Al has sold more comedy recordings than any other artist in history. In a career spanning nearly three decades, he has amassed 30 Gold and Platinum albums, 7 Gold and Platinum-certified home videos, and 3 Grammy Awards.
