He’s your favorite comedian who can carry a tune, “Weird Al” Yankovic Live! – The Alpocalypse Tour, filmed during his 2011 tour is more than just a show, it is a cinematic event featuring new songs along with his classics! Weird Al: Live is a brand new way for fans to experience this comedy icon.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Weird Al” Yankovic ranks as the most famous musical-parody act around. Al’s bracing wit has always found sure footing in hilarious videos that back up his songs, which invariably revolve around food, religion, disease and even mroe food! The problem is that it seems you are only deeply into Weird Al for a certain time range. We can’t all be thirteen forever, but it’s still worth watching.
The concert setup has remained the same for the last twenty-five years. Al will perform a song, dressed in an outfit relating to the song, perform it, and then repeat. When I saw him live, it only took him between four and eight minutes to change, if that. While him and his bandmates were changing, a clip would appear on the jumbo-tron from AL TV or an interview he had conducted with a celebrity earlier in his career. It was unique, but it also prevented emptiness and boredom.
The Blu-Ray comes with music videos and extra concert performances. Plus, you get a ton of Weird Al bonus material including some Youtube videos. The A/V Quality is pretty strong with a 1080p transfer and a rather supportive In the end, I’d recommend a purchase for fans.
