We'll definitely see both setlists, it's just that the early one might not be live-tweeted. Worst case scenario, we have to wait a couple hours before the set is revealed.

Completely on board with that! I love the live tweeting, but I don't think I'd want that distracting from my "in the moment" enjoyment at the shows. I'll be at 5 shows starting at the end of the month.

Someone texted me he did “Velvet Elvis”. Don’t know when in the set list. It was sent at 1:14 Vegas time. You figure it out. :P

After 30-odd years, I got to my first Al show. The guys are great (duh).

I can confirm that setlist is correct. Looks like a I got a real deep cut show. Still waiting for the chance to see Melanie live someday. Hopefully it won’t take me so long the next time. ;)

Also Al explained why YD&U hadn’t been performed before (original was in a purposefully ridiculously high key)... and it took him 20 years to remember that it is possible to transpose songs into a different key. So that’s what they did!

Man, that is a killer setlist right there. Happy to see Dog Eat Dog back, and SO MANY debuts at this show! I had originally said that YD&U wouldn't be done live, just because it would be too hard on his vocals. I guess I made the same mental error that Al did...
