'Weird Al' Yankovic Will Play Castle Theater in March

'Weird Al' Yankovic Will Play Castle Theater in March

The Maui Arts & Cultural Center will present the zaniness, abundant creativity and laugh out loud humor of satirist, musician, and multiple Grammy-winning recording artist 'Weird Al' Yankovic Sunday, March 26. Opening the show is comedian Emo Philips. Billed as a stop for Yankovic's 'The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent Ill-Advised Vanity Tour', the show is in Castle Theater and tickets go on sale online only Wednesday, January 18 to MACC members and Friday, January 20 to the general public.

'Weird Al' Yankovic is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist of all time. A five-time Grammy winner, his 2014 release Mandatory Fun was the first comedy album in history to debut at #1 on Billboard's Top 200. He is one of only three artists to have had their own Top 40 singles in each of the last four decades, the other two being Michael Jackson and Madonna. On August 27, 2018 the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce awarded Weird Al with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This past November, the movie WEIRD: THE AL YANKOVIC STORY starring Daniel Radcliffe in the title role launched on The Roku Channel. Al produced and co-wrote the screenplay for the film, which People Magazine recently included in its Top 10 Movies of 2022.

Few would have guessed that 'Weird Al' Yankovic - who as a shy, accordion-playing teenager got his start sending in homemade tapes to the Dr. Demento Radio Show - would go on to become a pop culture icon with classic song and music video parodies such as Eat It, Like a Surgeon, Smells Like Nirvana, Amish Paradise, White & Nerdy and Word Crimes. Now in his fourth decade as America's foremost song parodist, he has been the recipient of numerous awards, including five Grammys (out of sixteen total nominations) and a string of Gold and Platinum albums totaling over 12 million in career sales.

In the spring of 2022, Yankovic set out on his massive, 133-show tour The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, where he and his band play a different set list every night, comprised almost entirely of his original (non-parody) material.

Tickets are $39, $49, $69, $79, and a limited number of $125 premium seats, plus applicable fees. MACC members receive a ten percent discount. Tickets go on sale at 10:00 am online only to MACC members first Wednesday, January 18 and to the general public Friday, January 20. To become a MACC member and receive advance purchase privileges among other benefits, log on to MauiArts.org/membership.
