I <3 Weird Al Yankovic! He has a lot of stuff going on this fall, all of which I will tell you about now.
First, Comedy Central will debut the world premiere of "Weird Al" Yankovic Live! – The Alpocalypse Tour on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 9 PM.
On Oct. 4, "Weird Al" Yankovic Live! – The Alpocalypse Tour will be released in North America on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download via Comedy Central Home Entertainment. The extended DVD and Blu-ray include nearly an hour's worth of concert footage not seen on Comedy Central, plus over 30 minutes of bonus features that include: music videos for "Perform This Way" and "Polka Face," three extra live concert performances, a bunch of Al's personal YouTube videos and more.
"Weird Al" Yankovic Live! - The Alpocalypse Tour was shot this summer at the venerable Massey Hall in Toronto during Weird Al's tour to support the release of ALpocalypse. His first full-length studio album in nearly five years, Alpocalypse (released by Jive/Sony in June) debuted at #9 on Billboard's Top 200 chart, Yankovic's highest-charting album ever. "Weird Al" Yankovic Live! - The Alpocalypse Tour features hits off of Alpocalypse like "Perform This Way," Weird Al's parody of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," which garnered over six million video views in its first week of release, as well as many of the legendary artist's greatest hits, including "White & Nerdy," "Amish Paradise" and "Fat."
In another element of the multi-platform deal, www.comedycentral.com will be premiering "Polka Face," Yankovic's next video from Alpocalypse, on Sept. 25 and will be its exclusive home for two days. The song and video features accordion-driven versions of songs by Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Britney Spears, P!nk, Lady Antebellum, Katy Perry and of course, Lady Gaga.
