"Weird Al" Announces "The Mandatory World Tour"
"Weird Al" Yankovic has unveiled a monstrous batch of global tour dates to help promote his latest LP, Mandatory Fun. Jokester that he is, he's calling the promotional trip "The Mandatory World Tour."

Yankovic revealed the hefty itinerary late last night (January 19), with a propaganda-parodying trailer for the trip asking fans to "enlist in the greatest musical spectacle ever seen." The musical humourist will be out on the road for several months, starting off with a five-night stand at Las Vegas' Planet Hollywood from May 12 to 16. Throughout the summer months, Al will make several Canadian stops throughout Ontario, the Maritimes, BC and Alberta.

You'll find the info on all the North American and European dates announced thus far down below. Yankovic noted that there will also be shows in Australia and New Zealand, though those date remain under wraps.
