Weird Al will perform at the Foellinger Theatre, a facility of the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation department.</p> <p>For his 2018 <em>Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour</em>, Weird Al wanted to reward his hardcore fans with an intimate, scaled-down show that showcased a rotating setlist of semi-obscure deep-cut non-parody album tracks, many of which he and his band had never performed live before.  For his 2019 <em>Strings Attached </em>tour, he’s back to playing the hits and classics &#8211; but this time his band will be supported every night by background singers and an entire symphony orchestra.</p> <p>According to Al: “I wanted to follow up my most bare-bones tour ever with my most elaborate and extravagant tour ever. We’re pulling out all the stops for this one.”</p> <p><span><br />The concert is presented by Sue McLean and Associates</span></p> 3411 Sherman Boulevard Fort Wayne, IN America/Indiana/Winamac
