Weird Al brings Mandatory World Tour to Penticton

Fresh off the biggest year of his storied career, “Weird Al” Yankovic and his 2015 Mandatory World Tour will stop in Penticton on Wednesday, September 9 at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

Slated to visit over 100 cities throughout North America, Europe, and Australia, the tour follows the release of Weird Al’s #1 album, Mandatory Fun (RCA Records).  The album was released on July 15, 2014 and immediately shot to #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart.  This is the first time in over 50 years that a comedy album has topped the charts, and the first time ever that a comedy album debuted in the top position.  Mandatory Fun has also been nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Comedy Album.

 

"Weird Al” Yankovic is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history.  Now in his fourth career decade, he has won three Grammys (with 15 nominations) and countless accolades for classics like “Eat It,” “Like a Surgeon,” “Yoda,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise” and “White & Nerdy.”

Yankovic's “Word Crimes” debuted in the Billboard Top 40, making Al one of only three people to have had Top 40 singles in each of the last four decades (the other two are Michael Jackson and Madonna).

Tickets for “Weird Al” Yankovic 2015 Mandatory World Tour at the SOEC are $37.50 and $57.50.

Tickets can be purchased at www.ValleyFirstTix.com, by telephone at 1.877.SOEC.TIX (763.2849) or in person at the Valley First Box Office (at the SOEC) and Wine Country Visitor Centre.
