“Weird Al” Yankovic has just announced the dates for his 2019 Strings Attached tour – a high-energy, rock and comedy show featuring costumes, props, a video wall, and – for the first time – a full orchestra.
For his 2018 Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, Weird Al wanted to reward his hardcore fans with an intimate, scaled-down show that showcased a rotating setlist of semi-obscure deep-cut non-parody album tracks, many of which he and his band had never performed live before. For his 2019 Strings Attached tour, he’s back to playing the hits and classics – but this time his band will be supported every night by background singers and an entire symphony orchestra.
According to Al: “I wanted to follow up my most bare-bones tour ever with my most elaborate and extravagant tour ever. We’re pulling out all the stops for this one.”
“Weird Al” Yankovic is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history, earning four Grammys and fifteen career nominations. He is best known for his hilariously irreverent parodies of hit songs, including “Eat It,” “Like A Surgeon,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise,” “White & Nerdy,” and “Tacky.”
Yankovic’s 14th studio album Mandatory Fun (2014) made headlines when it became the first comedy album in history to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart, and the first comedy album to even reach the top of that chart in over 50 years. The single “Word Crimes” debuted in the Billboard Top 40, making Al one of only four artists to have had Top 40 singles in each of the last four decades (the other three being Michael Jackson, Madonna and U2). He recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

WHITESNAKE: THE FLESH & BLOOD WORLD TOUR
Mega platinum WHITESNAKE, the legendary rock ‘n’ roll band founded and formed by DEEP PURPLE singer DAVID COVERDALE are proud to announce their first shows of the 2019 “FLESH & BLOOD” World Tour, which will feature songs from the new studio record to be released in May 2019 on Frontiers entitled “FLESH & BLOOD” alongside their biggest hits & songs from one of the greatest back catalogues in rock ‘n’ roll history spanning over 40 years. The tour will include a stop in Huber Heights, OH at Rose Music Center on Monday, April 29th.
The first single & video from the new record entitled “SHUT UP & KISS ME” will be released worldwide in 2019 prior to the “Flesh & Blood” World Tour.
Founded in 1978 by former Deep Purple singer David Coverdale, Whitesnake have earned multi-platinum albums including ‘TROUBLE,’ ‘LOVEHUNTER,’ ‘READY AND WILLING’ and ‘COME AN’ GET IT’ through to the explosive hard rock of the revamped ‘SNAKE sound with the multi-platinum ‘SLIDE IT IN’ and having celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2017, 1987’s self-titled mega-million-selling smash-hit album, ‘WHITESNAKE.’ From these albums came multiple top 10 hits worldwide, including 2 number 1 singles with “Here I Go Again” and “Is This Love” as well as the unforgettable hammer of “Still Of The Night” all leading to virtual 24-hour domination of MTV around the globe.
In 2017, to mark the 30th anniversary of their most successful album “WHITESNAKE”, a Deluxe Package was released on Rhino Records to colossal success. The partnership with Rhino has continued with the recent release of “UNZIPPED,” a collection of rare and unreleased acoustic performances over the last 20 years, a truly extraordinary opportunity to hear some of the Whitesnake classics as you have never heard them before.
Bombast, bravado, talent and passion have helped establish Whitesnake as the perennial platinum favourite they have become and they’re back with a vengeance in 2019. The world-renowned group featuring DAVID COVERDALE (vocals), REB BEACH (guitar), JOEL HOEKSTRA (guitar), MICHAEL DEVIN (bass), TOMMY ALDRIDGE (drums) and MICHELE LUPPI (Keys) have just finished recording their 13th Studio record.
