The volunteers of the Troubadour Concert Series and Highbridge Spring Water announce “Weird Al” Yankovic and The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour – a stripped-down, no-frills production coming to the Lexingtington Opera House Monday March 26, 2018. After his highly successful Mandatory World Tour (200 dates including the Hollywood Bowl and Radio City Music Hall), Yankovic decided that he wanted to take a break from the high-octane theatrics that he’s known for and go bare-bones – no costumes, no props, no video screens… just Al and his band of three decades hanging out on stage, playing music. Because of the nature of the show, Yankovic will be performing exclusively in intimate theatres and settings. Drawing from a back catalogue of 14 studio albums, Weird Al promises to deliver a different set list every night – no two shows along the tour will be the same.

A  “Weird Al” Yankovic concert is more than just a concert. He changes into a countless number of different outfits and shows funny, home-made videos in which he takes clips of celebrity interviews and inserts his own colorful commentary, drawing from stand-up comedy and theater in the process.

“Weird Al” Yankovic burst onto the scene over three decades ago and never looked back.  For the first time in his storied career, the world’s foremost musical satirist and four-time Grammy-winner foregoes his usual high-octane, big-production show for an intimate evening of music, focusing on original (non-parody) songs from his 14-album catalog.  After his 2016 world tour, including venues such as the Hollywood Bowl and Radio City Music Hall, this is a rare opportunity to get up-close and personal with this legendary performer.

Weird Al’s most recent album Mandatory Fun was the first comedy album in history to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.  In 2018 he will be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.



Mavis Staples

The Legend!

In concert Saturday May 12, 2018 7:00PM

Lyric Theatre, Lexington KY

The volunteers of the TROUBADOUR CONCERT SERIES are excited to announce music legend MAVIS STAPLES a special concert event with one of the most influential singers of our time. and her full band on Saturday May 12 for a 7PM concert at the Lyric Theatre.
For six decades, Mavis Staples has been the solid rock of American music. Alongside the family group she is so indentified with, the Staple Singers, she has managed to transform herself as she goes, yet never alter. From the Delta-inflected gospel sound she helped create in the 1950s, to the engaged protest of the civil rights era, and then, amazingly, on pop radio in the Stax era with a series of soul anthems, from “I’ll Take You There” to “Respect Yourself,” Staples carried on, her warm embrace of a voice the only constant. How many musicians can claim this: to exist outside a scene, outside genre, yet weaving themselves into the fabric of soul, R&B, jazz, gospel, rock and blues?
