Emo Phillips (the warm-up comedic act) said “I like this audience - you’re smart. If you don’t like something you won’t heckle but wonder why you didn’t find out more about what iou were buying tickets for …” It was obvious by the large amount of children and curly wigs in the audience that they hadn’t read the concert info. It plainly stated that there would be no parodies and that it was mostly all original songs by the band. Very talents musicians. Al has a great singing voice. I didn’t know any songs but was happy to be there experiencing the “weirdness”.

I didn’t know when I paid $400 for tickets that he was not going to play popular tunes…so that would have influenced my decision as my kids really like the pop tracks. So going in I didn’t know what to expect. The opening act guy was creepy/ sad, not my cup of tea. Weird Al’s group though have talents and can really play a wide range of music. We stayed a little more than half the concert as my daughter fell asleep. Though I didn’t know the songs it was still entertaining and the acoustics were solid. Wonder what I missed….

3.0 star rating Weird fan from Vancouver


I went in not knowing what to expect, but thought he would do all his funny parody songs. He didn’t do any songs I knew, he basically was just performing with his band. He’s a talented singer, but I was there to see what made him famous. I thought the opener Emo was terrible, but he got a standing ovation, so maybe I was the only one that wasn’t a fan

I was in high school when the parodies of songs became popular. They were iconic. These songs at the concert were played in short clips at the finally but I would have enjoyed a mix in of what songs made him a legend. It was disappointing. I wish Al could have felt the energy of the crowd change from disappointment to excitement at his finally. Perhaps he would change things up. At the 3 song in , I wondered if I made a mistake going to this concert. The songs chosen were probably picked because of his most dedicated fans. But most were songs I never heard. I understood many word but some I could Not. The concert was lacking energy and made me wonder if the stars had health problems. The band all sat throughout the concert. The audience didn’t seem to enthusiastic but one lady in front of me seemed to be a huge fan. She danced around… I feel there should have been more video imagery to help entertain the crowd. The stage wasn’t not set to impress but just set to the minimum. The flashing lights were annoying… perhaps the band wanted to see the audience. The concert would improve greatly with more video techno and staging crew. Weird Al didn’t wear a Hawaiian style shirt that he’s known for and the audience would have felt more connected to him if he did. Some of the audience wore Hawaiian shirts and past concert shirts. Some people tried to be look alikes. I have to admit I did like and was entertained by 3 of the songs I have never heard before. I was impressed also by his talent. He is talented in fast lyrical music and plays a variety of styles. The warm up comedian was low sad energy . No theatrics. He was funny though. Not what I’d expect for a show you’d think would have pizzazz… I’d say definitely go if you’re a big fan. Lower your expectations if you’re not.

I was so excited to see Weird Al. The band and orchestra were so loud and the acoustics so bad that I couldn't understand most of the words. When a singer is doing parodies you need be able to make out the words. Don't these musical experts know how to put on a show properly? I feel ripped off!

2.0 star rating J.B. from Nashville, TN


For weeks I told my friends I was going to see Weird Al once again. My two previous encounters at Weird Al shows were two of my favorites. The show in Nashville at the historic Ryman Auditorium was a big disappointment. You go to a show like Weird Al's because you want some fun...some mindless entertainment. The show I saw was dark, so loud it was hard to hear the words, and missed on the best, most fun songs of his career. I will always admire his talent and energy, but last night's show just wasn't fun.

2.0 star rating D Schaefer from Austin, Texas


We left the show last night very disappointed. We saw Weird Al's show at Bass Concert Hall a few years ago and it was easily the funniest show we have ever been to. This show made me thankful that it did not go longer. His parodies are what made him famous, but he mostly ignored then as he wanted to highlight his original works. While some of the lyrics from his original works are clever, the music was just average. What makes his parodies so entertaining is that he writes very clever lyrics on top of popular music...and most of the music he performed last night will never be on anyone's playlist because there is so much out there that is better listening. As far as the Moody Theater, there is not a bad seat in the house. Acoustics and sightlines are good. Concessions are basically limited to drinks as the Taco Deli vendor ran out of tacos 40 minutes prior to showtime, so eat before you go.
