The world’s biggest selling comedy recording artist of all time, “Weird Al” Yankovic announces dates for The Alpocalypse Tour. The eagerly awaited U.S. Fall tour will kick off in North Las Vegas, NV on September 10th, 2011.  Touring in support of his highest charting album (No. 9 on the Billboard 200 albums chart) and 13th studio release,  Alpocalypse (Jive Records), Al and his band mates will perform songs spanning his storied three decade plus career. The 3-time Grammy Award-winner’s first album in nearly 5 years, Alpocalypse features the much-talked-about Lady Gaga parody “Perform This Way”  as well as parodies of hits by Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, T.I. and B.o.B. featuring Bruno Mars.

 Al and his long-time band were aided and abetted in the recording studio by guest appearances from Taylor Hanson and The Doors’ Ray Manzarek.
