CANTON, Ohio — He’s back!

Weird Al Yankovic is coming to the Canton Palace Theatre with his 2022 tour on Tuesday, May 17. It’s being called “The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour.”

Tickets go on sale Dec. 10 at 10 a.m. and prices range from $42.50 to $99.50. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination -- or negative testing within 72 hours of the concert (plus matching photo ID) -- will be required to obtain entry.

There's one other Ohio stop on the 2022 tour as Weird Al is also set to perform at the Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center in Dayton on Aug. 23.

“Once again drawing from his back catalogue of 14 studio albums, Weird Al promises to deliver a different set list every night, with no two shows the same,” according to a press release. “As before, rather than focusing on the hits from his career, the show will feature Yankovic’s non-parody material – the somewhat more obscure pastiches and original songs that have largely escaped the pop culture radar but are adored by his long-time fans.”

Comedian Emo Philips will open the show each night.

“Like the last Vanity Tour [2019], he will be playing smaller, more intimate venues, leaving behind the high-octane theatrics that he’s known for and going bare-bones – no costumes, no props, no video screens… just Al and his band of almost four decades hanging out on stage, playing music.”

The tour will feature 133 shows for six months throughout North America, culminating in New York City with Weird Al’s first-ever concert appearance at Carnegie Hall on Oct. 29.
