Is it time for a new Encore?

I've been an Al fan for many years, and have seen him many times. That being said, I think I'm getting a little bored/tired of The Saga Begins/Yoda being the encore song. It was nice that he did a cover song on his last tour, but I'd like to take it further. I know we're unlikely to get a tour again that has such a rotating setlist, but what about dusting off songs that haven't been done in forever, or breaking something out of the medley?

I get why Al does the songs he does in the Medley, they're easy to sing along to and they're well known. I just wish it would be something different, something we haven't seen in a while. Full versions of Like a Surgeon or Eat it would be nice, or even other songs that he just doesn't do often like I Lost on Jeopardy or I Want a New Duck. Or, any original would be good too.

Remember the SOL tour had Albuquerque as the finale. I think pretty much the whole band agreed it felt weird having Yoda/TSB in the middle felt wrong

I feel like they should stop playing Yoda/The Saga Begins as the encore, the last encore that wasn't Yoda/The Saga Begins was Albuquerque, & before that, I Love Rocky Road. Maybe we can get something from Medium Rarities as the encore, like Happy Birthday (Old or New Version) or Spy Hard.

For the Medley, I feel like the Food Medley should come back, I always found the Food Medleys (like 1985s & 1995s) to be amazing.

One way to change things up would be to end the main setlist with TSB/Yoda, and then do a long medley as the encore.
