I think he is going to do that goatee trick every night of the tour!

This whole speculation is hilarious. Personally I'd like to see him have it live but its my assumption he won't. Smells Like Nirvana certainly won't be gone either, playing it earlier just made it easier than later and it was great use of a classic parody early in the set, where I am also assuming it will stay.

I'm kind of interested to see if the Denver 4pm show is shorter or, if it is indeed the full show, how hoarse he'll be for the next show!

He's doing an "early" show at 7 PM for one of them... does that mean that he'll start the next show immediately after? haha

He hasn't done too many two show dates lately. I remember seeing him in Morristown, NJ on a two show day in 2000 and saw the night show. It was a shortened show and that was the originally sold out show. I'm pretty sure at least two songs were cut. That 4:00 Foxwoods show is tempting though. We could be home at a decent hour.

There's no reason why they can't do full shows for dates with two shows. For Foxwoods the first show is 4PM and the second show is 8PM. That's plenty of time to put on a full show and clear out and clean the theater between shows. There's even time for the band to do some gambling in between shows if they want.

I don't think they'll be any shortened shows without full disclosure ahead of time and before tickets are sold. Maybe that festival in NYC, but that's expected at festivals and people who are going to that aren't going only for Al anyway. The last few tours they've been disclosing shortened shows ahead of time. Also I think they're not booking places like fairs and other venues that require shortened shows this time around.

He did two shows for the Alpocalypse special. And if I recall correctly most of the footage was from show 2

Only now did I find out that's a thing :S . I only knew about the 1999 live special, because Alpocalypse special isn't on youtube (or at least hard to find). Gosh, comedy central website sucks at buffering :wacko:
