"Weird Al" Yankovic and The National Symphony Orchestra

Filene Center at Wolf Trap

“Weird Al” Yankovic is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history, earning four Grammys. The legendary musical satirist is back with his biggest show ever! Weird Al’s Strings Attached tour is a high-energy rock and comedy production featuring all the hits and classics like “White and Nerdy” and “Amish Paradise,” his original band, costumes, props, and—for the first time—background singers and a full symphony orchestra. Doors are at 6:30 Show starts at 8 PM We will be sitting on the lawn, because that will be the easiest for us to get together.

I will post our location on this page after I get there. I will be wearing a black cap with "Geek" on the front. If you have problems finding the group, please post on this page or send the Host a Direct Message. TRANSPORTATION: If anyone needs or would like to give a ride, please post on this page. I can meet them at the Spring Hill Metro Station (along the Silver line) at 6 PM in the Kiss and Ride lot on the East side. Please post if you'd like a ride from there. I have three available seats in my car. Metro closes at 11:30 PM, so I should be able to get you back to the metro before then. However, if the show is still going on at 10:20 PM, I recommend getting the shuttle back to the Metro. It leaves the venue at 10:30 PM and goes to West Falls Church Metro Station (Orange Line). If you just want to use the shuttle, The Wolf Trap Express Shuttle, operated by Fairfax Connector, offers roundtrip service from the West Falls Church Metro Station (Orange Line) to all Filene Center* summer performances. Cost is $5 for round trip. As stated above, the last shuttle from Wolf Trap is at 10:30 PM. https://www.wolftrap.org/visit/directions/transportation.aspx
