My 13 year old son is as big a Weird Al fan as you'll ever find. When he got tickets to finally see him for the first time, he was beyond psyched! He could not wait for it!! However, once we made it to the show and as Weird Al went through his set, my son became more and more disappointed. He does like Weird Al's deep cuts and knows all of them, but his favorites (like almost everybody) are the classics. Well, nearly $400 and one super bummed out kid later, we got absolutely none! Not one classic, not one hit, then a blue ride home back to Indianapolis... I gave 2 stars because his band is awesome.

1.0 star rating HatedIt from Augusta, Georgia


I love Weird Al, and his concert in Columbia, SC back in 2016 was one of the best shows I have ever been to; but the Augusta show was terrible. Horrible song choices. Horrible VIP experience. Horrible theater. Emo Phillips was awesome, though- the only part of the show I enjoyed. He covered "Peaches" by the Presidents of the United States of America, which is probably one of the worst songs to ever be sung and proof that in the 90's you didn't have to have talent to have a hit song. Hopefully his next tour will be better. He can put on some awesome shows, but this wasn't one.

My family of three went to our first Weird Al concert, having been enjoyably exposed to his CDs for years. This concert was painfully loud, difficult to understand and generally excruciating. We stuck it out for two songs with our fingers literally in our ears, but when things were obviously not getting any better, we left our seats and went home, quite disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed Emo Philips, the warm-up act, however. The theatre was picturesque, as usual. No complaints about the venue.

1.0 star rating April from Evansville, Indiana


Weird Al played a 2 hour set of original songs polka style. His encore was a medley of a few of his hits but they played them polka style. The audience was so still you could hear a pin drop. I feel like he flipped us off, for the amount of money we paid. I still can’t believe people were applauding at the end of the songs. I believe they were afraid of being rude. No one should go to this tour expecting to see classic Weird Al.

I would've given a "0" star if that was an option. We saw Weird Al several years ago in Nashville, and he was GREAT! He was running up and down the rows, he had on silly outfits, sang his parody songs, it was funny, etc. It was a great show. The show we saw on Friday, August 19, 2022, was a severe disappointment. We brought our 16 year old daughter and her boyfriend. We told them it was going to be some good clean fun and lots of laughs. What the show ended up being was a hard rock and roll band with screaming lyrics that you couldn't understand. The couple in front of us walked out after song 2, and we walked out after song 4. As we were walking to our car, there were 3 other families that had walked out of his show as well. The show was terrible. It was a waste of $400.00. And I wish we never went. I would've rather kept my previous memory of the Nashville show.

1.0 star rating Kevin Gaines from Austin, Texas


The first half was a comic that was just ok. We didn't go to a concert to listen to a comic. Wierd al did not play any of his hits. In fact he flat out said that people said they wanted the famous songs but he wasn't going to do that. We tried to stay to the end but gave up. Save your money and just download your favorite songs. Big disappointment. We took our son and his friend who were really excited, but left extremely disappointed.

1.0 star rating from Raleigh, North Carolina


I was hoping for a lot of laughs but that did not happen. Every song sounded the same and I fell asleep through part of the show. I enjoyed the opener, Emo. The show was not what I expected but I could tell some of the audience was enjoying it, so maybe it wasn’t my cup of tea.
