First World Problems cant go in the medley since its an original. Also i see Tacky as a great audience interaction song.

The Tacky video has Al and the cast moving throughout. When he performed the song on Conan, he walked though the backstage area and through the audience through the whole song. Having it as an audience number is a natural fit. He can also interact with both males and females, too.

Yeah, but there'd be no point to it. It's not like he's serenading anyone. (Unless he sought out the most distastefully dressed audience members. :lol: )

I think Tacky, Foil, and Word Crimes will be performed in full, while Inactive and Handy will be in the medley. Of the MF originals, My Own Eyes and Lame Claim to Fame are very likely to be performed. If Al got as far as writing any lyrics for Make It So, I'd love to hear it in the medley.

My dream encore would begin with the unplugged, Eric Clapton-y version of Eat It. The MTV Unplugged video would play earlier in the show, making the song feel like a "callback," much in the same way We All Have Cellphones was used on the SOL tour.

The point Is audience interaction- fans go nuts for it. Would you rather have him stay on stage the whole time or have the excitement flow through you when he walks down your row? Audience interaction is part of what turns a concert into a performance, and why WBUL is so special. It's also almost like a Neil Patrick Harris award show thing.

Anyway Tacky Tacky Tacky #Tacky #WBUL #AudienceInteraction ##

Also I am super down for the return of concert only songs. And I second Sporkman. (T)

Ooh! Homer and Marge would be an awesome medley song too! I think that with the new Hollywood Bowl lyrics it's justifiable enough as an "actual" Al song.

If they do Perform This Way in full again this tour, I hope they figure out something different for the costumes. The peacock suit is a funny visual for that moment in the video, and it was a good last-minute choice for the live performance given how little time they had to prepare between tour legs, but the song is just begging for a proper drag presentation. With more time to prepare, I'm sure Al's costume people can come up a more Gaga-esque drag outfit in Al's size.

Wouldn't it be cool if he threw in the Monk song from Galavant?

Somewhere in the middle of the show or during the Yoda chant... :lookaround:

I have read so many great wishes and dreams in here, but for me it would be ok if he "just" does a great show. ( :wordcrimes: , I know)
He has never been to continental Europe so this might be a first time for him and the fans as well. BTW: I don't consider UK being Europe. :nuke:
It sucks and that's no lie.
