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.
