Really wish he would stop playing Casino Rama. I'll probably be there either way though.

I really hope they play Poison, School's Out and a drum solo. The preceding sentence was brought to you by Sarcasm - it does a body good.

Finally a new tour to properly promote Paranormal, at least 2 songs we haven't heard in addition to "pp"should be played I would hope so hence the Tour name. I DEFINITELY going to the Uncasville show!!

Does anyone know if it will be AC.COM that will have the VIP/Front row packages or LiveNation?

I expect it will be LiveNation. It was last year. I think the days of AC.com doing the VIP packages are over.

So early? After 4 months? I am really happy that Alice is able to play 100 shows in a year but he will be 70 next year. After this year He and the whole band could have a little time, like every year until april-may.
Where's my make-up, where's my face ?

He does have a break he's off tour from December after Europe is over to the first week of March, he will be 70 next year but he's in the greatest shape of his life even he said so, and Alice said he will never retire only stop if my performances start slacking or if I get really sick were it's impossible to do it anymore. An he usually only tours 6 months a year but for an album tour it's always continues into the following year and start early in the new year. This kinda schedule is normal for Alice just look back at his tour history especially on album tours.

I think the tour is early next year because it has to fit in with Hollywood Vampires availability. He has said that next year will be a new Vamps album and a tour, and with the people involved he has to fit in wit their availability.
It's a guess, but I think that's why it's almost exactly one month of dates. April, or soon after allowing for rehearsals, will see Vampire activity.

Does the front row vip package still exist from live nation or will it be separate (front row ticket AND a vip)?

LiveNation doesn't do separate, AFAIK, so I expect it to be a package deal that includes the ticket. I also expect the first dozen rows to be blocked out of the presale because of the packages. That was the case last year in Louisville.

Yeah that was my thought too, Si. Some early solo dates and then a few months of Hollywood Vampires touring (probably more late Spring into Summer) and then I would suspect this Fall would be more solo dates in the United States and other places.

VIP package price went up. I sprung for it though, not sure how many more chances I’ll have!

In a bold move, Weird Al has just announced that on his next tour, he's going on without the theatrics, playing very few parodies and performing mostly his original, more obscure songs. He'll be playing mostly smaller venues and doing a different set list every night. He's warned fans that this will not be his typical show but so far, ticket sales seem to be doing fine. He is also offering the VIP experience for about $500 less than Alice.

My question is this, if someone known for their elaborate show as Weird Al is can do a tour for the die-hard fans, why can't Alice try the same. Just come out as himself for a small tour, play the songs we've wanted to hear for years, and then go back to the regular show. Drop the hits for one tour and play different fan favorites every night.

Coincidentally, Weird Al and Alice are playing the same night at a town near me. Do I spend my money on a show I've seen already several times before, or do I spend it on a once in a lifetime show? Never thought I'd say this, but in this instance, Weird Al gets my money.
Cooper took the stage,put on the best rock show since Gloria Estefan/Miami Sound Machine in 1987.
