Truthfully though, even J-Dub has not been here long enough to know the extents of what tour chasing fans have done in the past because he started with Al on the Mandatory Fun Tour. We know Elvis is thaa maaan!!! WrestleMania party next year, brother!
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!

I didn't know anywhere else to ask this, and if I'm being annoying feel free to ignore me! But, my show was in Ohio: https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/weird-al ... f0c3d.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Not to go to any trouble but just offhand, for when the concerts get released, can anyone recommend any shows they saw to listen to that were either a very differen't set list and/or was just a great show with great stories. (I felt like my show lacked a little with stories, and I was looking forward to that part of it.)

Hi! I was at the Atlanta show, about five rows back. Best night EVER! It was my first VIP experience. I met Al, as well as Kimo and Jim, on the last tour, but it was a bus side meeting with no pics. I finally got a chance to have my picture made with Al, and I was so nervous that I stammered my way through it like a school girl! So much I wanted to say to him and I froze! Plus, I looked like I'd been stoned a month!

Even with all that, I was still walking on air when i left that grand old theatre that night, and the Parallel Universe tour the next night was over the top awesome, as well!

Can anyone who attended a show this year where Party At The Leper Colony was performed confirm whether the saxophone part was played by Al on MIDI accordion or Rubén on keyboards?

It was all Rubén for the horns! Al actually played the piano parts on his Accordion!

Has anyone calculated the minimum number of consecutive shows you would have to go to on this tour in order to see the full rotation of every original song played?

Just wondering if anyone who had VIP and attended the early shows before the watches were available has heard anything about getting their watch? I have yet to hear anything.

I've been listening to them chronologically and have now heard the entire roster (Except for Fake Albuquerque and whatever "Audience Inspiration Song" is) after finishing up the second Ontario show. There may be a more efficient way to do it, but I'll start the bidding at 9 shows.
