Re: The Weird Al Yankovic Appreciation Thread

The wife and I saw him last night at the Greek. Great show. We had seen him twice previously at the fair here (all three times in August now). It was a beautiful night, and a great crowd. I believe he does the same set list for each stop on this tour. He had four big costume changes (Smells like Nirvana, Dare to be Stupid, White and Nerdy with his Segway, and Amish Paradise. He also changed and brought out the 501st for encores of The Saga Begins and Yoda) and he showed Al TV as usual during the switch.

Mostly. Some nights he does "You Don't Love Me Anymore" and other nights he does "One More Minute" instead. Otherwise it's the same show every night.

Actually except for his his tour last year (The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour), where he did a different show every night, the variation that we're getting on this tour is more than he normally does. With how tightly scripted everything is with videos, costume changes, etc, there is normally no variation throughout the entire tour.

The show sunday night was great. I had a smile on my face the whole time. I wish the orchestra was louder, though. I've seen him 5 or 6 times over the last 25 years.

My crazy ex-girlfriend was probably there. She's a huge fan of his, which is funny considering how much she's lacking in humor herself.

I thought she lived in the greater Niagara Falls area?
