"Weird Al" Yankovic will follow his massive 2015 world tour with a 78-date North American trek in support of his 2014 Grammy-winning album, Mandatory Fun.

The proceedings begin June 3rd at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida, continue throughout the summer and end with a September 24th date at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The trek also includes a concert at Nashville's famed Grand Ole Opry House on June 16th, and a two-night stand at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, July 22nd and 23rd. A complete list of dates is below.

Pre-sale tickets for the Return of the Mandatory World Tour will be available February 24th at 10 a.m. local time. General sale dates have yet to be announced, though information will be made available on Yankovic's website.

Along with his extensive tour itinerary, "Weird Al" is also set to appear as the new bandleader and co-host of Comedy Bang! Bang!, Scott Aukerman's surreal IFC talk show. Yankovic has made several appearance on the show — and Aukerman's podcast of the same name — but the gig marks his first regular TV series role since The Weird Al Show in 1997. Season Five of Comedy Bang! Bang! will feature 20 half-hour episodes and is set to begin this spring.
