GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Nothing says "Weird Al" Yankovic like a stripped-down, no-frills production.

That's what the comedy singer is bringing to the Meyer Theatre in Green Bay next June 10. It's part of The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour. There are no costumes, no props and no video screens, just Weird Al and his band on stage, playing music.

No two shows in the tour will be the same -- except that they won't feature Weird Al's hit parody songs, but instead his deep cuts and obscure tracks.

“After 35 years of big productions, I just wanted to take it down a few notches and have a little musical palate cleanser,” Weird Al said in a news release. “This show will be loose, unpredictable, and maybe a bit sloppy – we’ll be making it up as we go along!”

Comedian Emo Philips is the opening act.

Tickets are $49.50 and $59.50. They go on sale at noon Oct. 20 at the Ticket Star Box Office in the Resch Center, by phone at 1-800-895-0071 and online.
