But not in a creepy way. ;)

Why not Franks? I'm sure you know more than me, but I wouldn't have thought it would have been hard to play, since they did it a few tours ago. I want to see it really bad (missed it in 2010) but I'd live without it.

Man, I was really pulling for Everything You Know Is Wrong. Easily in my top 10 favorite Al songs

Oh, I believe we all were wanting that one. But that does leave something really amazing to be done in the future. Because it is certainly possible, theres no doubt there.

Probibly dreaming, but I've been wondering, this tour has been extremely well recieved by most fans, and most shows are sold out... Kinda wonder if he might do a similar tour in a few years. He could even get venues near where he played this tour and say "Well we played A C D AND F there last time, now we'll do B E G H I"

But i know I'm dreaming.

I'm hoping since there is no more album tours coming, they just play at least half the set originals and only do the essential costumed parodies. They love not having to change at all. Well the classic parody medley would have to come back of course.

This is what John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants does when coming up with setlists for each night. He reviews the setlists of the last few times they visited that city and makes sure to picks the new songs in the repertoire that haven't been played in that city recently or at all. It would be great if Al did the same thing. But first, let's hope there is indeed a second Vanity Tour. Don't forget, he apparently already has a plan for 2019.
