Lampoonist Weird Al Yankovic has announced 2018 The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour dates for North America. The singer will be joined by comedian Emo Philips at all shows. According to a statement on Yankovic's website, the tour will take place "in smaller, more intimate theaters, with limited production (no costumes, props, or video screens) and Al's set list will be comprised almost entirely of his original (non-parody) songs."
The 69-show performance schedule kicks off on February 27 in Poughkeepsie, New York and extends until mid June, concluding in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Seven concerts will take place in Canada.

A statement on Weird Al's Facebook page further details the upcoming tour:
Okay, obviously this tour is not for everybody. By design, it has extremely limited appeal. Instead of doing festivals, fairs and arenas, we’ll be doing small, intimate theatres. Instead of putting on a big flashy production, we’ll be trying to go for something very informal and low-key… kind of an Unplugged/Storytellers vibe. Like we’re just hanging out, playing in your living room. So if you’ve really got your heart set on seeing fat suits and Segways and hearing all your favorite parodies… this probably isn’t the tour for you. Chances are we’ll be doing that kind of show again sometime in the future, just not THIS time...
Because all my concerts in the past were so highly produced, they needed to be rigidly planned down to the SECOND, and therefore the shows were virtually identical from one city to the next. But since this tour is unencumbered by theatrics, we have a lot more flexibility. So… EVERY SINGLE SHOW WILL BE DIFFERENT. We’re going deep into the catalogue and mixing up the set list every night. This show will be loose, unpredictable, and maybe a little sloppy – we’ll be making it up as we go along.
