Well, it's not just you. The audio for that show clearly has only Al's vocals for the first 30 seconds of YDLMA. Surprisingly though, that wasn't just a "Stitcher show" error, that happened live! I'll link to the video down below. My guess is that the guys were able to hear the guitar via their in-ear monitors, but something wasn't mixed correctly in the house. You'll notice that there is a nervous chuckle from the crowd before Al starts singing, because they were all sitting there in silence for the intro of the song.

The Montreal show features Al telling a pretty funny story about when he met Eddie Vedder. It also had Al playing straight accordion on Larry, which he changed to an organ part when I saw it a couple weeks later.

I was at the Montreal show. Larry was amazing. I believe he went back to accordion after that, didn't hear about that.
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!

At the Longview show, Al did Buy Me A Condo with only Jim and Steve, which I'm pretty sure is unusual (except at Parallel Universe shows)

Was on vacation this past weekend with basically 0 cell service so cut into my progress. Currently on #10. I am hoping the shows will save once downloaded because I am pretty sure my month is over tonight or tomorrow.

Before Why Does This Always Happen To Me? in Green Bay on 6/10, Al talks about Ruben posing for a keyboard magazine centerfold and the band plays disco music. Not sure if that happened at any other show (didn't at the 7 other shows I saw).

On the spreadsheet, I just included it as a note for the intro to Why Does This Always Happen To Me?. But I'm considering if it should have its own line, since the band is playing. (Audience Inspiration Song has its own line)

Since we're on the topic of the band playing musical intros, I thought I would throw out another anomaly (that was probably already mentioned)

-On the April 14th show in Augusta, they started "Happy Birthday" by playing the intro of the Beatles song of the same name. To my knowledge, that is the only show that they did that

-Also at that same show, at the end of Generic Blues, Al messes with the band members, not throwing the sign indicating the music hit, resulting in Bermuda, Steve, Ruben, and Jim all hitting notes at completely different times.
