He could pull out a newspaper and sit down while it plays like he used to do for the yelling bit in Jurassic Park

Spy Hard would be amazing too.
This Is The Life would be amazing! "Dare To Be Stupid" is my favorite album so I would love anything from that album

I personally think Mission Statement would sound especially beautiful with the Strings Attached.

Has there been any conformation wither this will be the same set every night? I mean, since the orchestras are all local. For example, he could have one city do "This Is The Life" and "Spy Hard" and the next do "Mission Statement" and "Pancreas". There just seems to be too many good songs that he should do, and not enough time. And yeah, they said there would be video screens, but there could be a section of a couple songs where there weren't any.

I think it's totally possible that there will be a couple rotating songs early on in the set, but nothing as drastic as the "different show every night" from last tour.

Whenever Al does "the hits," there is little room for rotating sets. I could still see them switching up a song or two each night, though.

The most he ever did was back in 2010 when they switched Frank's 2000" TV/You Make Me and You Don't Love Me Anymore/Good Old Days.

Oh yeah, no, the 2010 tour was exactly what I was thinking of. I know it wouldn't be more than that that change. (Or at very most, one more.) :)

I'd really like to hear Hamilton Polka and Genius In France. Real tubas and clarinets!
