The legendary musician Weird “Al” Yankovic will collaborate with the Queens Symphony Orchestra next summer, mixing his humor and parodies with classical accompaniment to Forest Hills Stadium.

The Grammy-award winning Yankovic will continue his sold-out “Strings Attached” tour at the famous stadium on Saturday, July 20, 2019.

Yankovic, whose real name is Alfred Matthew Yankovic, will perform classics like “Eat It” and “Amish Paradise” with his original band, costumes, props, a video wall and — for the first time — background singers and a full symphony orchestra, according to the Forest Hills Stadium website.

Tickets range from $40 to $125 and go on sale Thursday, Nov. 16 at 10 a.m. for the general public. VIP ticket sales, where fans can meet Yankovic backstage and rack up swag go on sale Tuesday.
