2 (Bad Hair Tour) + 14 (Touring With Scissors) + 13 (Poodle Hat Tour) + 9 (Straight Outta Lynwood Tour) + 5 (2010 Summer Tour) + 3 (Pre-Alpocalypse Shows) + 10 (Alpocalpyse Tour) + 9 (Mandatory World Tour) + 4 (Ridiculously Ill-Advised Tour).

Wish I could have hit more on this year's tour to put a bigger dent in my Path to 100. X*

I wish I had the money and resources you guys had D: (ESPECIALLY this tour...) I'm lucky if I get to see him once a tour.

(But at least I'm super happy with the show I got this time- I mean, he couldn't have done ALL I wanted to see in one show, but only did 2 I don't care for, so that's a win. :) )

This...or it was this until the last few years he has been through. It is not resources for going to multiple shows that causes me from only seeing him in Dallas. It is the wife would not approve of me running off to see him a couple more days while he was in TX. :)

I dug around to see how many shows I have seen and it is only 6. 2000 was when I first got to see him thanks to my sister and her boyfriend at the time buying me a ticket. Then I missed Poodle Hat tour and probably due to me not knowing I had friends who would go with me since I don't enjoy doing concerts/movies alone. Then I found a poker buddy who I heard liked Weird Al and wanted to go see him in 2008 for the SOL tour. That got us hooked and we have been every time since..except one show I saw on a list that had been in Garland, TX and I never even know happened. I now have so many resources for Al via the internet that I should never miss a show again.

that show in Garland took place at the Special Events Center (now the Curtis Culwell Center), down the street from my high school and was also the venue for my graduation!

Unfortunately, I didn't get to go, because that was one of the few times I didn't live in Texas.

I am still wondering how I missed it being here entirely. The one back in Ft Worth at the Bass Music Hall I knew about but did not have anyone to go out there with nor did I really have the money for it. Oh well...I am gearing up for next month and hopefully everything works out and we have a great time there.

Tuesday night, April 10th marked my 4th -

08/14/2004 - Arnold's Park Amusement Park, Arnold's Park, Iowa.
09/27/2007 - The Riverside Theater, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
08/02/2013 - Wisconsin State Fair Park, West Allis, Wisconsin.
04/10/2018 - The Pabst Theater, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

I'm trying to find setlists from the first two concert I went to back in 2004 & 2007 without much luck so far. Even setlist.fm is missing those shows.

I'm pretty new here and I'm in awe of folks who have seen Al so many times!! Since I just added 2 shows to my total I figured now was a good time to jump in here and share my list:

8/8/1996 Bad Hair Day - Allentown PA
9/19/2000 - Running with Scissors - Ashland KY
9/28/2007 - Straight Outta Lynwood - Champaign IL
7/4/2015 - Mandatory Fun - Milwaukee WI
7/2/2016 - Mandatory Fun - Aurora IL
4/6/2018 - Vanity Tour - Chicago IL
4/7/2018 - Vanity Tour - Chicago IL

7 isn't too shabby considering my fandom had some lapses over the years as life interfered with how closely I was following him. And when I was a fan as a young kid seeing him live was never something it occured to me I could DO!
Hoping to get into the double digits in the near future! Can't wait to hear what he has planned for 2019!
