If you've ever swapped the word "virgin" for "surgeon" while singing Madonna's 1984 hit or if you can't help but think of a horse and buggy every time Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" comes on, then the accordion-wielding, Ramen noodle-haired prince of parody, Weird Al Yankovic, has done his job.

To follow up this year's stripped down, deep-cut heavy "Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour," Weird Al is returning to his roots with his arsenal of hit inspired hits, costumery, visuals, and, this time, background singers and a full symphony orchestra.

The Strings Attached tour will roll through 64-North American cities including a stop at Rochester Hill's Meadow Brook Amphitheatre on Friday, July 5.

Tickets ($30) go on sale on Friday, Nov. 16 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here.
