I’m actually pretty happy with the setlist for this show even though I was unable to attend, because I’m not a huge fan of any of these songs really (except Fun Zone and Generic Blues!!) so I have high hopes for the Mesa show!!! :lol:

Also, *I* wanna see that dang Albuquerque song!!! :lookaround:

I watched the Fake Albuquerque last night (funny little ditty). If you haven't seen it:

For the record, they fixed the sign. Not until the morning after the show, but at least it was fixed.

Does anyone know definitively if the alternate Albuquerque song is actually written by Al, or if it's a cover of an old ditty? I asked WOWAY's resident New Mexican, and she had never heard it before.

I did see it fixed after I walked out of the meet and greet. I swear I saw it unchanged when I parked my car before the show

Here are some pictures, I was in the front and center. It was an awesome show! It was nice to see a lot of details up front haha!! I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't much audience interaction, mainly because I scored a front row seat. But it was amazing to be that close to him for 90 minutes :) ImageImageImageImageImage

I'm pretty much 100% sure it's Weird Al's creation, just so he could introduce it to an expecting audience as a little song he wrote about Albuquerque. He wrote a similarly cheesy little ditty about Rio Rancho (A little city just outside of Albuquerque) when he performed there. Something about Rio Rancho being a great place to hang your poncho... He loves to tease New Mexico, and we get awesome exclusive songs as a result.

Didn't they also perform Sweet Home Albuquerque at one of the shows there? So this time they got the original version, or did he do that again?

Yeah, Sweet Home Albuquerque was at the Rio Rancho show a few years back. This time he played Sweet Home Alabama with no changes as his cover song. (Mostly so he could go out and say, "I have a little song here about a place you all know. ALLLL-ABAMA!")
