The show was awesome! For 2 hours, and and his long time band members (Jim West, Steve Jay, Reuben Valtierra, and John Schwartz) played a knockout fun
show covering from the title album to Mandatory Fun and all in between. Complete with costume changes and video clips, it's a show not to be missed!

STILL A BANGIN' SHOW!
Weird Al busted it out again, another amazing show. His energy was top notch, full costume
changes all throughout, and a special lounge version of some very classic Al fav's. Did not
disappoint, except that it was only 2 hours long instead of like... 4 or 5 hours long! Always a
great time at the Mandatory Fun tour.

John from Boxford, Massachusetts
WEIRD AL AT THE WILBUR
This was an excellent show. Weird Al, his band, his awesome songs, minus all the usual costumes and props and video screens and dancers. I went to one of those previous shows with costumes etc., and awesome as it was, it sometimes felt like Weird Al was acting out a caricature of himself. Not so this show: he was sitting on the stool, singing like crazy. My only (minor) complaint is about the balance: the drums and, to a lessor extent, the bass were enough too loud to make it a bit hard to hear all the lyrics clearly.

"WEIRD" AL YANKOVIC IS A MUST SEE
Absolutely stunning show. Imagine Zappa-esque arrangements, yet with better, or at least more accessible songs. 2nd row seat were so worth it: band is still strong, 3 female backup singers are excellent, and I was blown away by just how good of a singer he is (talk about range..). Oh, and the 41-piece orchestra backing him. A once-in-a lifetime experience, musically and emotionally.

SOMETHING NEW FOR MOST CONCERT GOERS
Emo Phillips (the warm-up comedic act) said “I like this audience - you’re smart. If you don’t like something you won’t heckle but wonder why you didn’t find out more about what iou were buying tickets for …” It was obvious by the large amount of children and curly wigs in the audience that they hadn’t read the concert info. It plainly stated that there would be no parodies and that it was mostly all original songs by the band. Very talents musicians. Al has a great singing voice. I didn’t know any songs but was happy to be there experiencing the “weirdness”.
Weird fan from Vancouver
I went in not knowing what to expect, but thought he would do all his funny parody songs. He didn’t do any songs I knew, he basically was just performing with his band. He’s a talented singer, but I was there to see what made him famous. I thought the opener Emo was terrible, but he got a standing ovation, so maybe I was the only one that wasn’t a fan
Lisa Thomas from Seattle, Washington
I was so excited to see Weird Al. The band and orchestra were so loud and the acoustics so bad that I couldn't understand most of the words. When a singer is doing parodies you need be able to make out the words. Don't these musical experts know how to put on a show properly? I feel ripped off!

THIRD TIME....NOT ALWAYS A CHARM
For weeks I told my friends I was going to see Weird Al once again. My two previous encounters at Weird Al shows were two of my favorites. The show in Nashville at the historic Ryman Auditorium was a big disappointment. You go to a show like Weird Al's because you want some fun...some mindless entertainment. The show I saw was dark, so loud it was hard to hear the words, and missed on the best, most fun songs of his career. I will always admire his talent and energy, but last night's show just wasn't fun.

AUGUSTA'S WORST CONCERT EVER
I love Weird Al, and his concert in Columbia,
SC back in 2016 was one of the best shows I
have ever been to; but the Augusta show was
terrible. Horrible song choices. Horrible VIP
experience. Horrible theater. Emo Phillips
was awesome, though- the only part of the
show I enjoyed. He covered "Peaches" by the
Presidents of the United States of America,
which is probably one of the worst songs to
ever be sung and proof that in the 90's you
didn't have to have talent to have a hit song.
Hopefully his next tour will be better. He can
put on some awesome shows, but this wasn't
T Scott from Lexington, Kentucky
OVER LOUD, UNDER FUNNY
My family of three went to our first
Weird Al concert, having been
enjoyably exposed to his CDs for
years. This concert was painfully loud,
difficult to understand and generally
excruciating. We stuck it out for two
songs with our fingers literally in our
ears, but when things were obviously
not getting any better, we left our
seats and went home, quite
We thoroughly enjoyed Emo Philips,
the warm-up act, however. The
theatre was picturesque, as usual. No
complaints about the venue.
April from Evansville, Indiana
WORST CONCERT I’VE EVER ATTENDED
Weird Al played a 2 hour set of original songs polka style. His encore was a medley of a few of his hits but they played them polka style. The audience was so still you could hear a pin drop. I feel like he flipped us off, for the amount of money we paid. I still can’t believe people were applauding at the end of the songs. I believe they were afraid of being rude. No one should go to this tour expecting to see classic Weird Al.
