The Colorado Symphony Announces Weirdest Collaboration Yet

Fresh off of a downright odd collaboration with the funk band Lettuce, the Colorado Symphony has announced what may be its weirdest collaboration yet: This summer, the Mile High City's symphony will join forces with the legendary satirical musician "Weird Al" Yankovic.

Fans of classic Yankovic (think "Eat It," "Like a Surgeon" and "Smells Like Nirvana") have a lot to look forward to: He's going to be digging back through his catalogue and dredging up the hits, replete with costumes, props and a video wall. He'll perform alongside his original band, background singers and the full orchestra.

See the music video for "Smells Like Nirvana" below:

The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. on August 1 at the world's most majestic venue, Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Tickets, $49.95 to $90 plus service fees, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, November 16, online at AXS and by phone at 888-929-7849.
