Weird Al’s “The Mandatory World Tour” – 3 October 2015, Birmingham O2 Academy
Loved by those cult followers who know him for his hilarious parodies of songs and for being a talented comedy song composer in his own right, with a career spanning five decades, this evening myself and my boyfriend had the honour of seeing ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic perform the first of four rare UK dates as part of his current world tour at the Birmingham O2 Academy.
- Lame Claim to Fame
- Now That’s What I Call Polka!
- Perform This Way
- Dare to Be Stupid
- First World Problems
- Smells Like Nirvana
- Party in the CIA / It’s All About the Pentiums / Handy / Bedrock Anthem / Another One Rides the Bus / Ode to a Superhero / Gump / Inactive / eBay / Canadian Idiot
- Wanna B Ur Lovr
- Eat It / I Lost on Jeopardy / I Love Rocky Road / Like a Surgeon
- White & Nerdy
- Word Crimes
- Amish Paradise
- We All Have Cell Phones
- The Saga Begins
I urge fans new and old of Yankovic not to miss this rare chance to see him live in the UK as I can guarantee an unmissable evening of hilarious live music and the chance to see this comedic legend up close and personal.
If tickets are still available, the three remaining UK dates are Sunday 4 October at Eventim Apollo, London, Wednesday 7 October at The Limelight, Belfast and Friday 9 October at O2 ABC, Glasgow, with him in between heading to Vicar Street, Dublin on Tuesday 6 October.
