Before getting to New York, Weird Al Yankovic's "The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour" will stop at the Victory Theatre in Evansville, IN on Wednesday, May 25th. This will be the first time Weird Al Yankovic has toured since 2019.

Weird Al Yankovic's ability to parody pop-culturally iconic songs, making them both hilarious and his own, is what has set him apart as an artist. One of his first big hits was "Eat It", his parody of Michael Jackson's 80s hit, "Beat It."

Don't wanna argue, I don't wanna debate
Don't wanna hear about what kind of food you hate
You won't get no dessert 'till you clean off your plate
So eat it
Don't you tell me you're full
Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it
Get yourself an egg and beat it
Have some more chicken, have some more pie
It doesn't matter if it's broiled or fried
Just eat it, eat it, just eat it, eat it
Just eat it, eat it, just eat it, eat it, ooh

Tickets to see Weird Al Yankovic's "The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour" stop at the Victory Theatre go on sale on Friday, December 10th at 10 am CST at the Ford Center Ticket Office or online at Ticketmaster.com.
