Welcome back to the weirdness that is! Weird AL!
OK maybe a little over the top, but welcome anyway :)
The arena was pumped without any help from the obligatory opening speaker (some official for the fair). Weird Al busted out on stage as the band broke into Polka Face which for a fluff song, is actually fun to listen to.
Right from the start the big screens behind the stage and to the side had synchronized video with the band playing and Weird Al's singing. He utilized the fact that a lot of hilarity of his songs come from the videos associated with them. It was as much fun to watch the background videos as it was to watch Al! Especially with the fun antics he did at seemingly random times till the band joined in and hilarity ensued.
There were videos in between the songs as well which was an awesome way for the audience to stay entertained while there were costume changes. Between Al interviewing celebrities, clips of UHF and general Al Weirdness, we had no time to be bored.
During the booty shaking, the woman receiving it put both of her hands out and was totally ready to grope him. I'm still laughing from it. To top it all off, every picture we were able to get of Weird Al in this song has him looking like a psycho stalker. Mmmm baby. LOL
He went through most of his new album songs with a good chunk of his best loved classics. The crowd absolutely exploded (me included) when he went into White and Nerdy. Of all of his songs, this was the one sung the loudest and best from the crowd. (It is our anthem after all ;)
I do feel sorry for the people that were sitting in front of me though. I was screaming my head off at times (what can I say, I was enjoying myself lol). Noticing the lady plugging her ears numerable times, I tried to aim my screaming above their heads whenever I could remember. They seemed to appreciate it.
After an hour and half of concert, Weird Al thanked the audience, gave a nod to his band members and acted like it was over. The audience seemed to know that there was more. It took for a minute but the crowd started chanting "Weird Al", and sure enough there was more.
After it was finished the Vadar/storm trouper team left and Weird Al went into his Yoda song. A minute into it Mom and I realize that the Star Wars vigures had come down into audience are were doing some dancing and picture posing with audience members! Oh you know I just had to get in on that! (Check out the pics on my Facebook page!) This really was his last song and the crowd was happy and satisfied. The one thing I regret about the end of the concert is that we left quickly. I heard that Al did some autograph signing for those that waited. Oh well, hopefully there will be more Weird Al in the future!
