Post by YankoSwag 8888 »

Yankopunk said earlier that on both the DVDs songs were omitted on TWS Bilbillies, Fast Food, Spuds, Delivery & Laundry were omitted but what about the Alpocalypse Tour DVD what was removed from that?

Why is this its own topic?

The Alpocalypse Tour DVD did not omit any songs, just the video clips. Al deliberately removed all of the concert-only songs for that tour so that he could use every song in the DVD.

The only reason songs were removed from the first DVD was because Free Delivery, Fast Food and Laundry Day cluttered up the first several minutes of the medley, and Al didn't have permission to release them.

No. I did not make this. A mod did.

If you're referring to what I remember, yeah, I was talking about what OneWAY said: concert-only songs and the videos are always omitted. That's why I said I wish that we could have an all-inclusive Blu-Ray or DVD before all is said and done. I know rights issues would make it very expensive, but I would gladly pay.

Tens of thousands of dollars? Possibly hundreds of thousands? You realize that's the range we're talking, right?

Yes, I'm well aware that is what it would cost them. Licensing of anything in the media world is not cheap.

We can dream, right? :)

Very true. I definitely want Al to make lots of money. :)

Anyway, if I ever won a lottery jackpot, I'll just hire Al for a private concert and everyone here will be invited! :D
