The only tickets available for this show via the presale are the overpriced VIP packages, or the $75 seats. Love ya Al, but I may have to sit this one out, you're too expensive for me.

I know this thread is kind of dead, but if anyone reads this...
ONLY ONE MORE DAY!!!
I'm super excited, even though it is my THIRD show during the Mandatory World Tour :)
Few quick questions for anyone that has experienced this leg of the tour:

1. Is it any different from the first leg? I saw it at Foxwoods and in Port Chester, NY on the previous leg of the tour, and was wondering about any differences
2. What merch are they selling? Specifically, what T-Shirts, and are they selling the new NECA Action Figure?

Now a question just for the people who know the theater:

Does anyone know where the stage door/tour busses are for this, as I may want to do the bus-side meet and greet

Thanks! :accordion:

One other shirt that wasn't listed that I remember seeing is the "Weird Al is my Homeboy" shirt. On a side note, I went to a show early on in this new leg, and one item heavily requested by fans that they didn't have was a tour shirt with all the dates and places for this new leg on it. Hopefully they release one at some point, if they haven't (I've heard of new items popping up as the tour went on, and early date items selling out like the original UHF posters).

Also, yes, they're selling the new NECA action figure! I bought mine there, and it got signed at the Czar meet and greet following the show. On another side note, for anyone interested in the figure, it's available at Toys R Us online and in stores. I actually saw it a few days ago, with a significant number displayed prominently, at my local store. We rarely get cool items at my local TRU, so it was great to see! Also, I might have arranged them all to look even better and catch the eyes of shoppers more. :lol:

Hope you have fun and please come back and tell us about your experience! :)

Here comes the review!!!

Show was phenomenal, better than the first leg (in my opinion)
I'll talk abt some of the highlights

Tacky:
One of my favorite parts of the song. He started in a tractor trailer truck and walked through the losing dock and all through backstage, until he emerged and walked down the right (if you're facing the stage) side aisle.
NOW that's what I call polka
Before he screams "ARE YOU READY TO POLKA?!" And after raising the accordion, he did something that I hadn't seen in the first two MWT shows, played some really high notes on the accordion and squeaked along with them.
Dare to Be Stupid:
How can you go wrong with this song?
Medley:
Always the BEST part of the show. My favorite part was Canadian Idiot, but a close second was Inactive, I loved how he sang it one octave lower than on the CD, I enjoyed it more than the recording!!
Wanna B Ur Lovr
During the first half or 3/4 of the song, the camera wasn't working, so we couldn't see everyone, luckily he licked a woman both before AND after the camera started up!
Saga Begins/Yoda
I have no idea how he gets this many people to cheer for 3 straight minutes before Ruben comes back out for Saga and Yoda. UNBELIEVEABLE. Chant was amazing as always.
Loved some new clips between songs, for instance, I've never seen the Real Food video and couldn't stop laughing

Something I found weird and maybe someone knows the answer to;
There was a mic on each end of the stage pointed towards the audience, what were these for? Have they been there before? I'm wondering if they're there to record the audiences cheers for a live album (PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE)


All in all, FANTASTIC show, and sad to see the MWT go.

If you are referring to this thing:

that isn't a microphone. Its something that is involved in the sound system, and it helps (IIRC the explanation I was given a looooong time ago) the sound guys make sure the mix is good. Its some sort of transmitter? Adrian-do you remember that? I'm pretty sure you and I asked about that beast. Its not recording anything. That image is from the 2010 Internet Leaks Tour (June 24 2010) and was taken in Westbury NY. That piece of equipment is still on the stage, at least. I'm not sure if that is what you mean--I know we picked it out years ago and asked someone what it was.

ANYWAY.

It is indeed some sort of wireless transmitter, and I do believe it was related to the audio setup. I forgot about the part about making sure the mix sounds good but that seems to jibe with what I do remember.

Your pics came out great! I'm glad one of us remembered to have a camera that actually, you know, as a power source. X*
