Sunday Night Beach & Motown
6:00pm-9:00pm
"Weird Al" Yankovic had 'em rollin' in the aisles at the DPAC!
Sunday, October 9th, 2011 - The legendary "Weird Al" Yankovic performed at the Durham Performing Arts Center in NC and had a packed house rolling in the aisles!   He played songs from every era of his career, doing musically note-for-note parodies of hit songs from the 80's all the way to soon-to-be classics from his latest album "ALpocalypse."   Starting the show off with a rollicking version of his Polka Medley from the new album, "Weird Al" made his way through a set over 2 hours long showing off his accordion skills & singing while his class-act backing band never skipped a beat.    Many costume changes by "Weird Al" throughout the show complimented various songs including Michael Jackson parodies "Eat It" & "Fat" while the whole band decked out in bizarre outfits for the Lady Gaga parody gem "Perform This Way" off the new Yankovic cd.   A well-coordinated show full of great visuals on the video screens, flashbacks to "Al TV" clips, plus an exciting encore featuring all star cast of "Star Wars" characters had the crowd begging for more of the warped humor from the master of the parody song.
