We Know Genius is out. This Is The Life and Everything You Know Is Wrong will definitely not be done. Unfortunately for me I'm doubting Hamsters will be done, damn it!

Where was it confirmed that Trigger Happy and I'll Sue Ya are being performed?

I thought he didn't want to do I'll Sue Ya because it gives him a headache. I'm definitely hoping for Trigger Happy, good chance it will be done a few times.

He performed I'll Sue Ya at the 501st Bash last year, which he proclaimed to be some kind of preview of the upcoming tour, if I recall correctly. Seems reasonable that he'd play it again. Trigger Happy was brought up in an interview with Jim recently, and while Jim didn't seem to remember if they rehearsed it, he certainly didn't say no.

Harvey the Wonder Hamster has been performed before. It used to be a sing a long thing going all the way back to the 80s. Wouldn't be a bit surprised if that was a regular for this tour.

I would take a strong guess that Talk Soup is out, since that show has long been off the air, Weasel Stomping Day & Christmas At Ground Zero since those really don't suit the live 5 piece. I imagine Ringtone would be too challenging to do live. And I don't expect Trigger Happy will get a warm welcome in Florida or Las Vegas.......

Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if they were planning trigger happy, but scrapped it after the latest shooting.

Certainly imagining wrong if you don't think Ringtone can be pulled off. I'm sure they'll pull out Trigger Happy, shootings have been happening before and after and will always go down unfortunately. It's still an Al show, he shouldn't care about sensitivity relating to his songs, it's an obscure original and that's what this tour is about. Hoping they do it, only because it's fun and they want to.

Songs that will probably have stools if they do them:

The Check's In The Mail
Such A Groovy Guy
Mr. Frump In The Iron Lung
Buy Me A Condo
Good Enough For Now
Don't Wear Those Shoes (jus Al on stool)
Melanie (though he walked before)
Good Old Days
Generic Blues (though makes more sense to rock out)
You Don't Love Me Anymore
The Biggest Ball Of Twine In Minnesota (could sit this time, stand at end)
Truck Drivin' Song
Why Does This Always Happen To Me?
Bob
Pancreas (possible with two keyboards)
If That Isn't Love
Mission Statement (band may have to stand)
Jackson Park Express (may not be done, if it is he'd probably start on stool)

plus Don't Download This Song and Stop Forwarding This Crap To Me which if they wanted to do they should just have the crowd act as the choir, many songs can be done without all the backing tracks and female backup vocals. Just riffing here.

Sorry, triple post. Keep in mind, doesn't take long at all before stools become an uncomfortable pain in the bum and back of legs so he most likely won't want to spend a really long time on a stool in the end.
