“Weird Al” Yankovic’s tour features the only comedy album in history to debut on the Billboard charts.
The party continues for “Weird Al” Yankovic and his loyal following on June 3, 2016, as he said he plans to continue the Mandatory World Tour. This tour encore is due to the success he experienced with the tour last year. Al will be visiting 76 cities, including Los Angeles and New York City.
“I’ve decided to do the Mandatory World Tour for one more year, after learning that some people didn’t make it out to the show this last time around,” said Yankovic. “Apparently, they don’t know the meaning of the word ‘mandatory’!”
This four-time Grammy-winning artistâ€™s album,Â Mandatory Fun, was the first comedy album to hit number since Allan Sherman’s 1963 hit, “My Son, the Nut.” Not only is this Yankovic’s first time with a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, but the comedy album is the first in history to debut there as well.
Yankovic also announced a flyaway contest where the winning fans will receive an all-expense-paid trip to see Yankovic’s performance at either the Hollywood Bowl or Radio City Music Hall. More information on how to enter the contest or purchase tickets is available at his website listed below.
