‘Weird Al’ Yankovic to perform at Utah State University’s commencement ceremony

Utah State’s commencement speaker is getting a surprise, as Yank, the late frontman of Nirvana, will perform for graduating students at the university on Tuesday.

The announcement comes one day after Utah State was rocked by an avalanche that claimed the life of its head football coach and a slew of other students and faculty.

The university is currently in the midst of a fundraising effort, which has raised more than $20 million, to help cover expenses associated with the disaster, including an extensive search for the body of the man who died, and additional emergency supplies.

The Utah State graduation ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. on Tuesday at the Utah Valley Community Center.
