FARGO—Tickets for three concerts go on sale at noon on Friday "Weird" Al Yankovic returns to the region next summer with a concert at the Fargo Theatre on June 6, with comic Emo Philips opening. Yankovic most recently played Bluestem Amphitheater in August of 2016 to a full house of 2,700. That tour prompted him to want to take a step back from all of the costumes, props and videos he used on stage. The new tour will be stripped down to just the singer, his backing band and some of the deeper cuts from his career.

1 'Urinetown: The Musical' Tonight - Saturday North Dakota State University's theater program is producing "Urinetown: The Musical", a comedy featuring a dystopian future where water is scarce and toilets are a luxury for the wealthy.

Tickets range from $10 to $20 at www.ndsu.edu/performingarts or (701) 231-7969.
FARGO—On the surface, Danielle Colby may seem like a great fit as the featured guest of this weekend's tattoo and motorcycle show, Roughrider Iron & Ink Expo. The star of the History Channel's "American Pickers" has a number of tattoos, one arm centered on her mother and daughter and the other on her father and son. Her retro looks give her an in with the motorcycle crowd.
FARGO—In the 1931 film "Frankenstein," Henry Frankenstein memorably exclaims, "It's alive!" when he sees that he's successfully animated his creature. Michael Shapiro shares the same enthusiasm about his arousing score for the classic movie. "No question about it. I'm giving it resonance that did not exist before," he says. For 71 years the movie lacked a score because early talkies didn't have the technology to have a musical track and a track for dialogue.
Troy Pedersen is changing his business’ name back to Collectors World, and the shift is significant to the local art collecting world. For years the backbone of his enterprise was magazines, but Pedersen’s new store at 211 Northern Pacific Ave., Fargo, will be fronted by his new venture in second-hand art sales, most of it from his own collection. The store opens today.
The Fargodome announced its first big show of 2018 with Kevin Hart taking the stage on Jan. 19. The popular comedian/actor played the Fargodome in fall of 2015 on his “What Now” tour, which grossed over $100 million worldwide. He has starred in movies like “Ride Along,” “The Wedding Ringer” and “Get Hard.” Later this year he’ll appear in “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”.
FARGO—Do you remember Tiffany, the red-haired, teenage, bubblegum pop star famous for shopping mall concerts in the late 1980s? She's playing the Fargo Theatre Sunday night. Except that Tiffany isn't this Tiffany. This one is a 46-year-old mother of an adult son who belts out rock tunes, plays casinos and makes B movies and reality TV. About the only thing that's the same is the red hair. Forget what you thought you knew in the '80s; today's Tiffany isn't that kind of girl. On the phone from her Nashville, Tenn., home, the singer talks about her touring show.
MOORHEAD—Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. When Kim Deal left the reunited Pixies in 2013, it threatened to break up the group. Again. After a false start with another Kim (Shattuck, of The Muffs and The Pandoras), the group brought in singing/bassist Paz Lenchantin. The lineup stuck and the group released its sixth album, "Head Carrier," in late 2016, an album that sounds like it contains lost gems from the group's prime years in the late 1980s.
