My Weird Al wish list

Bear with me, this does have something to do with Colorado! “Weird Al” Yankovic, my idol for the past ~20 years, is currently on his Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour. Luckily there is a tour stop in Denver — I actually had to buy tickets back in October, before we left Ohio, making this concert the first concrete plans I had in Colorado.

Al has made it clear that this Vanity Tour is very different from his previous tours — no videos, no costumes, a chill vibe and more of his original work. This is fantastic news for me, a dyed-in-the-wool Al-coholic who much prefers the originals and pastiches to the straight parodies.

Local media from other tour stops has published hints about his set lists — which change every night, heaven help me! — but I’ve been avoiding them all as I’d like to be surprised on May 1, when he finally makes his way to Denver.
