On the Beat

Weird Al Yankovic headed for DPAC

Weird Al Yankovic is coming to Durham Performing Arts Center this fall -- and maybe this time, he’ll get to finish the show.

Last summer, the master parodist’s tour came to Cary’s Booth Amphitheatre while he was still in the glow of his first-ever No. 1 album. And his performance was a great deal of fun for the first hour, until a storm rolled in and cut it short.

But Sept. 9 will find Yankovic in the indoor confines of DPAC, on the latest leg of his “Mandatory World Tour.” Tickets go on sale Friday.
