“Bizarre Al” Yankovic introduced this morning that he’s going to be traveling in 2019 with a complete symphony orchestra, neatly, a number of complete symphony orchestras.
Two weeks from as of late – Monday, Nov. 12 – we’ll be pronouncing the dates for my 2019 excursion, which we’re calling Strings Connected.
We’re going at once from my maximum scaled-down, low-key display ever (this yr’s Ridiculously In poor health-Recommended Self-importance Excursion) to my maximum full-blown, over-the-top extravaganza ever. No longer simplest are we bringing again the costumes and the props and the large video display, but in addition… each and every unmarried evening we’ll be acting with a FULL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA. For actual. No, we’re now not cramming an orchestra on our bus – it’ll be a unique orchestra in each and every town. Infrequently it’ll be a “branded” native orchestra (like, say, the Colorado Symphony), and different instances we’ll mainly simply be hanging in combination our personal orchestra with native musicians.
And sure, we’re again to PLAYING THE HITS… however we’ll additionally throw in a couple of deeps cuts too (together with a pair songs that we’ve by no means performed sooner than – now not even at the In poor health-Recommended Self-importance Excursion!) In fact it’ll be the similar wonderful band as at all times – Jim, Steve, Ruben and Bermuda – plus, for the primary time ever we’ll be traveling with feminine background singers (Lisa Popeil, Monique Donnelly and Scottie Haskell – implausible vocalists who’ve gave the impression on a lot of my studio recordings).
I believe it’s in point of fact going to be a different display, and I will be able to’t wait to get began! I’m now not allowed to mention a lot else about it sooner than the 12th, however I will be able to say that it’s mainly a 3-month summer time excursion, and sure, we’ll be enjoying a host of puts that we didn’t get round to at the ultimate one (hi, Vancouver, Las Vegas, and all the state of Florida!) However unfortunately, I’m afraid that, as soon as once more, it’s only a North American excursion – optimistically we’ll hit Australia, Europe, and different portions of the arena any other time.
Anyway, tickets cross on sale Friday, Nov. 16 at 11:00 AM Japanese… all dates and data can be on weirdal.com. Hope to peer you at the highway subsequent yr!
