Weird Al Yankovic first act announced for Britt's 2015 season
Britt Festivals has announced one act for its 2015 season, nearly three months before the full list is released.
Iconic parody songwriter Weird Al Yankovic will take to the Jacksonville venue's stage Sept. 2 as part of his Mandatory World Tour, according to a news release from Britt.
Yankovic has won three Grammies and has recorded 14 albums. His latest, "Mandatory Fun," which features parodies of Pharrell Williams' "Happy" ("Tacky") and Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" ("Inactive"), debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard's Top 200 chart, the first time a comedy album clinched the top spot in Billboard history.
General public sales for lawn tickets will be available online only at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 30, although Britt members can buy tickets earlier.
The full 2015 season will be announced April 9. The festival's full Classical Festival lineup will be announced Feb. 5. Ticket sales for full season start Friday, May 15.
