White & Nerdy
The Saga Begins
This was my first time seeing Weird Al, and it was a blast. It's a multimedia experience: during the many costume changes (after almost every song), he shows various video clips, mostly his famous celebrity "interviews" from Al TV. There was also a trailer for a fake Weird Al biopic starring Aaron Paul, Patton Oswalt, Olivia Wilde, and Gary Cole that was hilarious, as well as clips from TV shows where Al has been mentioned or had a cameo. The songs themselves were great, of course. He puts on one hell of a show, that's for sure. He rode on stage on a Segway for "White & Nerdy," and had Stormtroopers from the local 501st Legion chapter join him onstage for "The Saga Begins." Long story short, go see him if you have a chance.
