A new show has been added to the Forest Hills Stadium that will bring some “mandatory fun” to the performance.

On July 20, 2019, “Weird Al” Yankovic will take the stage at the Forest Hills Stadium for his “Strings Attached” tour but with a twist — his back-up band will be a symphony orchestra.

“I wanted to follow up my most bare-bones tour ever with my most elaborate and extravagant tour ever,” Yankovic said. “We’re pulling out all the stops for this one.”

Yankovic, known for his parodies of popular songs such as “Eat It,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “White & Nerdy,” “Tacky” and “The Hamilton Polka,” will perform with the Queens Symphony Orchestra. The show will also include props, costumes and a video wall as he performs his high-energy rock set.

Yankovic’s 14th studio album “Mandatory Fun,” which was released in 2014, was the first comedy album to hit the number one spot on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart, making it the first comedy album to reach the top of the chart in over 50 years.

Tickets will be available starting Nov. 16 at 10 a.m. For more information, visit foresthillsstadium.com.
