Aww, it sounds like Al didn't want to leave. That's so cool that he did all those songs. Man, I wish I could have been there. Thanks for the update, Braider!
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

I have never been to a Weird Al concert nor considered going to one but my daughter (who is 9) likes him and has been wanting to go to a concert so I took her. I do like some of Weird Al's stuff so I know many of his songs I just never thought I would see him live.

Weird Al really does put on a great show. I haven't been to a concert that had so many props involved during the show. I would probably go again if he did come because it was that good of a show. The above two posters have got the encore right except the Rio Rancho song came before Sweet Home Albuquerque and the latter was cut short and halfway through it, the real Albuquerque song started. Also, Al said he forgot the words 11 minutes in so he started the song over! After about 1 minute of that though, he went back to the end because he said he remembered them.

One important thing that happened last night that no one posted about:

DANCING STORMTROOPERS!!

Wow, this Albuquerque concert is definitely one for the Al Annals of Fame!

(Al, if you want to do "Smoke On The Water" at the Greek next Saturday, we won't mind)
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

Yeah I forgot about the dancing stormtroopers. I believe they were all part of New Mexico's 57th(? I forget the number) Infantry. A group that specializes in making and wearing Stormtrooper armor and shows up to major SW-related events. They were actually having dinner at the local IHoP afterward and talking about the show, but I didn't have the guts to approach them. :^)
