    The Alpocalypse is nigh!

    The world's biggest selling comedy recording artist of all time, "Weird Al" Yankovic, is getting ready to embark on "The Alpocalypse Tour." The eagerly awaited US tour will kick off in Las Vegas, NV on September 10th, 2011. Touring in support of his 13th studio release, ALpocalypse, Al and his band mates will perform songs spanning his storied three decade plus career. Hell to the yes! I hope he performs "Dare to Be Stupid," which is my fave Al tune.

    The new album features parodies of hits by Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, T.I. and B.o.B featuring Bruno Mars. Al and his longtime band were aided and abetted in the recording studio by guest appearances from Taylor Hanson and The Doors' Ray Manzarek. What a pair of helpers Al had.
