Good to know his plan for the next tour seems to be an (extended) all acoustic parody medley bookended by an all original setlist.

It's gonna be pretty strange to have Albuquerque start in the middle of the show, but I remember when Al played The Saga Begins and Yoda in the middle of the set about a decade (it's been ten years already? GEEZ) ago.

I'm also really curious to see what songs Al will be adding/alternating next year. I imagine more obscure oldies will make it into the set list, along with a few newer tracks from the last few albums. I would like to see something like The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota or I Was Only Kidding.

Totally awesome! I'll Sue Ya making a comeback. Anybody got the rest of the set? I guess not yet

Setlist fm sais the medley was lounge style which I'm guessing is a new approach, maybe not the candles, to the medley. Albuquerque would be nice to see again!

It was just the acoustic medley. Same one from the Mandatory Tour, but with Amish Paradise, Smells Like Nirvana, and White & Nerdy added

Ahh. I pictured them in like lazy boys or something. I don't think they'd keep doing Smells Like Nirvana unplugged regularly. Wish I could have seen this set!

I would pay so much money if Al inserts the 'friends-only' verse of "Melanie" into the 2018 tour.

There's a video on YouTube that has a little bit of Amish Paradise Unplugged, it sounds hilarious!

I'm really excited to hear Smells Like Nirvana and especially White & Nerdy unplugged. I think it's a safe bet that those will be making it into the 2018 tour.
