New Year's Eve Maui Food Bank Event

Postby Wizzerkat » Wed Jan 08, 2014 11:17 am

Since Al has done this for 3 years now, I figured it should get a topic. A 3 and a half minute video has finally come along for the most recent one:

And Alice Cooper opines about taking the act on the road:

There is a video somewhere on Instagram of Al performing "Gump". According to Twitter buzz, the only other song he performed was "You Don't Love Me Anymore."

I'm wondering what other songs he may have performed (although he may not have had time for anymore) since he bought some songs out of mothballs from the Scissors/Internet Leaks tours and obviously was playing with other backup musicians.

He probably only did those two songs. He wasn't the only performer, and he most likely would have been the lowest on the totem pole

After seeing all the YouTube and Instagram videos, here is my best guess for Al's set...

Gump
The Night Santa Went Crazy
You Don't Love Me Anymore
All You Need Is Love (joining in w/all other guests)

OHMYGOSH LOVELOVELOVE

I love the way this one sounds like with all the guitars and everything. It's so cool. Also "GUESS THEY WON'T HAVE THE FAT GUY TO KICK AROUND ANYMORE" is just one of my favorite things ever. The guy filming this had the best angle for that part it was sogreat. LOVE Al's energy ohmygosh

Oh to be in Hawaii for New Years

Also is it just me or does the guitar guy kinda look like Star-Burns

Now I just really want to know what Al asked the audience
Like was it the usual "ARE YOU READY TO ROCK" joke or

I really want to see more of Gump, but TNSWC is pretty awesome. As soon as I saw it, I added it to my favorites, haha.

My guess is that the "Are you ready to ROCK?" question was the lead-in for You Don't Love Me Anymore, like it was during the Internet Leaks tour.
"I'll never feel awesome until October."

I'm guessing that backup band is just Cooper's usual backing band.

That video is awesome! Happy we finally have some actual footage of Al at this year's event. In the past we've just seen him in group numbers and a small clip from a song or two.
