Following a triumphant twelve months in which he scored the first US number one album of his career, pop’s premier parodist has now revealed that ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic dates will soon be announced for a North American tour.

The 55-year-old, who reached the top of the Billboard 200 with his 14th studio effort, Mandatory Fun, back in July, took to Facebook this week to announce that a series of dates will be confirmed on his official website on January 20.

The three-time Grammy winner has already released ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic tickets for four shows in 2015 including Greensburg’s Palace Theatre on May 31, Vienna’s The Filene Center at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts on June 12, Erie’s Warner Theatre on July 10 and Melbourne’s Maxwell C. King Center for the Performing Arts on August 31.

But fans will soon be able to get their hands on ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic tickets for a whole host of further performances which will no doubt feature his recent spoofs of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy,” (“Tacky”) Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” (“Word Crimes”) and Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” (“Handy”).

However, Yankovic isn’t averse to playing his classic parodies either, and his last major trek, 2013’s ‘Alpocalypse Tour,’ also included his much-loved takes on Michael Jackson’s “Bad” (“Fat”) and “Beat It” (“Eat It”), Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” (“Amish Paradise”) and Chamillionaire’s “Ridin’” (“White & Nerdy”).
