After finishing his Australian concert tour, Weird Al has decided to play the rest of the United States tour in Australia also.   “It’s just so beautiful out here, I figured ‘Hey, why not?’  So I called up my tour manager and forced him to move every venue previously located in the United States brick by brick to Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth.   It took 5 billion man hours and I had to call in A LOT of favors on this one, but really feel it was the right choice.  I mean, come on, look at this koala bear!”

NPR: Tiny Desk Concert

Can’t make it to any concerts this year?  Seriously?  Not one of these?  Aw man, sorry to hear that.

Well, you can still get your concert fix thanks to NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series and even feel like you’re standing right next to him as he sings.  Here is Weird Al and the entire band playing “You Don’t Love Me Anymore,” “Good Old Days” and my favorite, an acoustic version of “CNR.”   Graciously, NPR also provides an audio version for download at the top of the page.
