This cool double-sided concert tee is a souvenir from Weird Al Yankovic's Poodle Hat Tour from the early 2000s. The tour was to promote the popular parody singer's eleventh studio album of the same name. Weird Al's career started in the late 70s, when he got a comedy song aired on the Dr. Demento Radio Show. From there Weird Al has made a successful career out of spoofing the songs of mainstream artists. He's garnered five Grammy Awards and six platinum records over the years, and some of his most famous hits include "Eat It" a parody of Michael Jackson's "Beat It", "White & Nerdy" a spoof of "Ridin'" by Chamillionaire and Krayzie Bone, and "Smells Like Nirvana" a parody of Nirvana's signature hit "Smells Like Teen Spirit".
Poodle Hat featured spoofs of songs by Avril Lavigne, the Backstreet Boys, and Billy Joel, as well as several original comedic songs and a polka medley called "Angry White Boy Polka", which reinterpreted some of the most popular nu metal, garage rock, and rap tracks of the era, including "Last Resort" and "Chop Suey!". Yankovic's live performances are known to be a musical comedy multimedia extravaganza, and concerts often include a large video screen and plenty of costume changes. The Poodle Hat Tour was notably Weird Al's first time performing live overseas.
