‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Sets 2 Weird Nights in Denver for 2022
In the end, we'll find that 'Weird Al' isn't all that weird at all. He's a a brilliant musician who puts a smile on our faces, with his great sense of humor.
The nation and world have loved 'Weird Al' since he burst onto the scene with 'The Dr. Demento Show,' way back in the day. His parody songs and original songs have made millions of people laugh out loud, and he's bringing those songs and fun to Denver.
'Weird Al's' 'The Unfortunate Return of of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour' will stop stop in Denver, Friday June 3, 2022, and Saturday, June 4, 2022, at Ellie Caulkins Opera House.
If you've never been to Ellie Caulkins Opera House, you couldn't ask for a more fun way to be introduced to the historic venue, known simply as 'The Ellie.' In 2022, 'The Ellie' will be celebrating its 114th year after opening in 1908, named after 'Denver's First Lady of Opera, Ellie Caulkins.'
Though he'll never be mistaken for an opera singer, 'Weird Al' has won five Grammy Awards (with 16 total nominations) as well as many other awards. His 2014 album, his 14th release, 'Mandatory Fun' became the first comedy album to ever debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. The album included the big parody hit, based on Pharrell Williams' 'Happy.'
With these smaller venues like Ellie Caulkins (capacity: 2,200,) Yankovic will not be focusing NOT on his parody hits, but his original non-parody material. Each show on the tour, however will have a different setlist.
He'll perform songs that big fans know, such as 'Everything You Know is Wrong:'
Supporting act on the tour is the equally, wonderfully strange Emo Phillips.
Tickets for 'Weird Al' ($50-$85) go on sale on December 10, 2022, through AXS.
