Wouldn't it be something if Al performed the original American Pie (or, God forbid, the Madonna version) and then sang Saga Begins?

What if Al performed Madonnas' arrangement of American Pie but with his own Saga Begins lyrics?

Is Al more likely to do an actual Buddy Holly song or Weezer's "Buddy Holly"?

Could he bring "Lasagna" out of mothballs despite not fitting the tour's theme?

I mean, they could do La Bamba. I actually think this is the most likely song if they were to do one of the three. They are already familiar with the music, and Al has a teleprompter. I would love to see him do Peggy Sue or Chantilly Lace. But the more I think of it, the more I think it will be American Pie.

I happen to be heading there tomorrow night, 5th row. Pretty excited! What would you all like to know from the concert?

You can upload the setlist and any amusing things that took place.

At the very least what cover was performed.

Elvis and I get really particular and love to know if any tiny musical moments happen like when Al sings one word of "Reunited" or when Al returned to the old Audience Inspiration Song gag.

Wonder how extended the last show of the Tour will be? Maybe a bit longer than this one, yet to be seen. Also will be long since we're in the final two now. Slightly depressing.
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!

All 50 rotating originals, all 70+ covers from throughout the tour. 10 hour final show. :P
