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.

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.

EMO PHILLIPS AND WEIRD AL
I thoroughly enjoyed the event. Even the blair claws mishap. Would love to get the keyboard solo for Melanie on tape :)

WEIRD AL GETS BETTER WITH AGE!
Saw him in Greenville last year. I wasn't super excited about the Vanity tour returning, but I think the song choices he had for this tour was better than the last. More of his better-known original songs.
I hope his next tour features more parodies, though, but he always puts on a great show! Family-friendly too! And, it showcases his band members' many talents. Emo Phillips was a perfect addition, too!
