I'm listening to these songs as the setlist gets updated, random comment: I remember the very first time I heard 'Twine', when Al said "Maybe we'll tie it to the back of our car, but I was only teasing!" I thought that was foreshadowing that the kids were going to tie it without anyone noticing (somehow) and then he was going to drive off and be in huge trouble. XD That would have been an interesting twist. I remember actually being dissapointed when nothing happened with that. xD

I have now heard Mr. Frump in the Iron Lung live. I never thought I'd be able to say that.

Weird @alyankovic also gave us a crisp yet thunderous CNR, one of my very favorite pastiches, and a confessedly pandering cover of the Standells' "Dirty Water" that had this Boston crowd screaming in the aisles.

I was at this show and I didn't think to keep track of the bass, guitar, and drum solos. I don't remember hearing 2 bass solos and a guitar solo in this show, and I thought there was a drum solo, but I cannot confirm or deny any of them, since I wasn't keeping track. I also went to 3 shows in a row, so I may be confused. :lol:
I have a feeling that fans tweeting/posting the songs online might not include the solos, so the spreadsheet may not be entirely accurate for those. I guess when the audio streams are available it can be confirmed. :D

8 PM show had 2 Bass solos, one drum solo and no guitar solos.

Bittersweet concert,
I Remember Larry is one of my favorite songs of all time so to hear it performed live for the first time ever was amazing
Sadly, it also marked my second and final vanity tour show :(
I was hoping to go in NYC but don't think I can swing it.
Unfortunately, 50% of the set list was the same at the 8PM show as the first show i went to (Foxwoods), but reading through the matinee set list makes me jealous as heck!!!

Well, they were still both very fun and different concerts, and I'm glad I got to attend 2 at all [Foxwoods takes the cake because Jackson Park, Albuquerque, Nature Trail to Hell and Good Old Days :)]

That all my tour talk until June when the streams are released, and 2019 when he sets out again!
