FOXWOODS RESORT CASINO WELCOMES “WEIRD AL” YANKOVIC TO THE FOX THEATER FOR ONE HILARIOUS NIGHT
01.30.2015

Foxwoods Resort Casino, the Northeast’s premier entertainment destination, is thrilled to welcome Grammy Award winner and the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history “Weird Al” Yankovic to the Fox Theater on June 6, 2015.

 

Now in his fourth career decade, Yankovic has won three Grammys (with 15 nominations) and countless accolades for classics like “Eat It,” “Like a Surgeon,” “Yoda,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise” and “White & Nerdy.” Yankovic ‘s 14th studio album, Mandatory Fun (RCA Records) , was released in July 2014 and immediately shot to #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart.  This is the first time in over 50 years that a comedy album has topped the charts, and the first time ever that a comedy album debuted in the top position.  Mandatory Fun has also been nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Comedy Album.

 

Yankovic’s upcoming tour is slated to visit over 100 cities throughout North America, Europe, and Australia. Foxwoods’ guests are in for an entertaining night of comedic genius with a historically accomplished performer.

 

Tickets to “Weird Al” Yankovic are $55 and are available for purchase at www.foxwoods.com or by calling the Foxwoods’ Box Office at 800-200-2882, Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000, or in-person by visiting the Box Office.
