Grammy-winning musical satirist “Weird Al” Yankovic has announced a show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 2019 with the Colorado Symphony.

“Weird Al” Yankovic holds the distinction of selling more comedy records than any other comedic artist in history. Out of fifteen Grammy nominations he has taken home four awards for parodies of hit songs like “Eat It” as well as his comedy albums. Yankovic’s 2014 album Mandatory Fun took home a Grammy for Best Comedy Album and is the only comedy album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. “Weird Al” also recently appeared as Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo in a parody of the rock band’s 1994 video for “Undone-The Sweater Song” in the visual for their cover of Toto’s “Africa.”
