"Weird Al" Yankovic was my first concert ever. I saw him at the Adler in 1996! A lot has changed since I was in 5th grade, but my love for Al has not. He's been keeping up with trends and producing hilarious pop parodies for nearly 40 years! He truly is a living legend. "Weird Al" revealed his 2016 tour dates on Tuesday, and he'll be coming to CR August 9th at McGrath Amphitheater.

The Mandatory Fun tour hits many more Midwest stops this summer, such as:

7/2 RiverEdge Park - Aurora, IL

7/3 Star Plaza Theatre - Merrillville, IN

7/7 White River State Park - Indianapolis, IN

8/19 State Theatre - Minneapolis, MN

8/20 Fox Cities Performing Arts Center - Appleton, WI
