He didn’t invent the song parody, but for nearly 40 years, his name has been synonymous with it. Believe it or not, “Weird Al” Yankovic’s songs have been a part of our lives for a full generation. Even without the benefit of extensive radio play, most people are familiar with at least a sampling of his music: from trading tapes of 80s hits “Eat It” and “Like a Surgeon,” to clicking on the viral video of “Word Crimes,” we’ve never been far from Yankovic’s wit.

Now is your chance to see him live, as he brings his Mandatory World Tour to the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester. This performance promises to be a multimedia experience, with singing, video boards, and of course, polka!
“Weird Al” Yankovic performs at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester on Thursday, July 30, at 8:00 pm. Tickets can be purchased at the Capitol Theatre box office, on their website or by calling Ticketfly at (877) 987-6487.
