Hot off the heels of his 13th studio album,_ Alpocalypse_, 3-time Grammy Award-winner “Weird Al” Yankovic will perform at City National Grove of Anaheim.
_Alpocalypse _(Sony/RCA Records) is Weird Al’s first full-length studio album in nearly five years and debuted at No. 9 on the U.S. album charts, marking the highest-charting album of his storied career. Alpocalypse features the much-talked-about Lady Gaga parody “Perform This Way” as well as parodies of hits by Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, T.I. and B.o.B featuring Bruno Mars. Al and his long-time bandmates were aided and abetted in the recording studio by guest appearances from Taylor Hanson and The Doors’ Ray Manzarek.
Al’s new web series, _Face 2 Face with “Weird Al” Yankovic _on The Nerdist Channel, features Al “interviewing” the biggest names in show business, including Nicolas Cage, Morgan Freeman, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Harrison Ford, and more. Al’s latest project, Weird Al: The Book, is an illustrated coffee table book on Al’s life and career set to be released October 1.
Weird Al’s mastery of pop-culture parody has been a constant in the music industry for over three decades. He is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist of all time, and his hit singles such as “Eat It,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise” and “White & Nerdy” have garnered him international acclaim. He recently added “NY Times Bestselling Author” to his list of accomplishments with the publication of his children’s book _When I Grow Up _(HarperCollins) – the app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has just been released. His 2006 album Straight Outta Lynwood featured the Platinum-selling Billboard Top 10 single “White & Nerdy,” the video of which has been viewed on the web over 100 million times to date and spent two months at #1 on iTunes.
