I really like this set list. I wish they kept Like A Surgeon. I find One More Minute to be a bit awkward here, because of Wanna B Ur Lovr. But overall it's a great show that I highly recommend watching. 9/10

2007 New Hampshire

I love this as an opening song.

One of my favourites. It works great at the beginning.
Drum Solo
3. Close But No Cigar

Notes: Al plays a bell with a ball on it.
An great underappreciated original.
4. Why Dose This Always Happen To Me?

Another great underappreciated original.

5. It's All About The Pentiums

A great song, but by 2007 it was irrelevant.

A Good Medley

9. I'll Sue Ya

A good performance of a hilarious song.

A classic song.
11. Yoda

It's really awkward having Yoda this early in the show.

12. Smells Like Nirvana

13. Amish Paradise

Another Classic

A great song. I say it was worth getting rid of Couch Potato over.
Video: Al-Unplugged
15. Fat
Costume: Fat MJ suit
Special Effects: Ho
A good song. It probably could have gotten switched for something else.
16. Cell Phones
Costume: Hawaiian Shirt / Black Pants
The greatest song ever made in the history of the world.
17. Albuquerque
An amazing finish to a great show.

I think this is a hit or miss show, The song choice wasn't the best, but I love Albuquerque. I think he could have ditched Saga/Yoda completely, I also think he could have given Fat a rest this tour and replaced it with Like A Surgeon. It's All About The Pentiums could have been put in the medley instead of Couch Potato. I feel a song like Virus Alert could have been added aswell. But overall a great show. 8/10
