Pop's reigning satire king Weird Al Yankovic will be making his triumphant return to the St. Louis region on June 3rd, when he'll play the Family Arena in St. Charles. That's also where he played in August of 2008. Refresh yourself on the man's theatrical brilliance by revisiting his top five music videos.
Yankovic's parody format has been especially dramatically impacted by the rise of the internet: There are suddenly a hundred homemade Youtube competitors for every song he sets out to redo. But he's also been able to get his parodies out much more quickly -- in the case of T.I.'s "Whatever You Like," Yankovic was able to get his version (also called "Whatever You Like") on iTunes while the original was still topping the charts.
Tickets go on sale Friday, April 15 at 10 a.m. at the Family Arena ticket office or through metrotix. Prices range from $26.00 to $56.00.
