I took my nephew to this one, it was his first concert. We did go to the Twine Ball beforehand, because you just have to!! I have only seen it once and it was his first time seeing it. It was just so beautiful!! hehehe!! We couldn't go inside to see any Al pictures because it was closed.
The seats weren't that great as I have had before, row X. We were at the 2nd & 3rd seat near the middle aisle so he went by us for the Tacky intro. I had two tall guys in front of me so that stunk. For WBUL he never made it by us and I saw a bunch of ladies switch seats with guys to get to the middle when he started that song :? During Word Crimes when he said Prince a lot of people cheered, of course :)
It definitely wasn't my favorite show I have been to cuz of the seats but it was fun to see me nephew go crazy. He said he knows now why I like to go to multiple shows. He kinda wanted to go with me to the Madison show but I told him too bad, haha! All in all, it was still a great show, I just can't go to a Weird Al concert, I need to be close :) !
We did get to a Burger King afterwards and went to the drive thru. I didn't realize it until afterwards but he got a burger and i got a chicken sandwich. No root beer though :D

I didn't get that great of pics

Thanks for sharing your experience! :)

You forgot some vital details: did you get curly fries, and did they remember the onions?

Well, I'm guessing that they probably weren't too bright... or maybe they were kinda burnt that night. :lol:

You can go into the pagoda and into a gift shop/museum, too, if you call ahead. I did. And the stuff I bought at the gift shop added up to $27!
