There is an option to display all the lyrics to the songs on the featured concert. The lyrics are well thought out and finely composed. Some of the lyrics may be mildly offensive to a few people and the act is, occasionally, a little lewd, but within the limits of most people. Some may not like the one scene where he dances suggestively in front of a lady. It has a Canadian Home Video Rating of PG (which is the same as a PG rating in the United States). There is no foul language. I found much of the show amusing and entertaining.
The show includes a large backscreen, showing cartoons and videos.
I especially like the "Polka Face" mash, "Canadian Idiot" which parodies Green Day's "American Idiot," the "Medley" mix, and "Amish Paradise". I would like to point out that Mr. Yankovic actually has a fine voice and that his acts are carefully crafted with skill and talent.

I feel that I would have enjoyed it more if it had an 'in-the-audience' view. The close-ups were okay, but I wanted to feel like I was sitting right there (but at a high-enough level to not have anybody in the way, of course). I'd wanted to have seen the audience more and be enough rows back to get Al...the band...and the screens that were above and behind the stage all at the same time. Of course, when Al went into the audience, that would have been a time to follow him closer.
Frank's 2000-inch TV was played during the concert I saw, but it wasn't in this lineup. However, it is in an extra on the DVD. He doesn't do every tune in each concert but, for the most part, they are all identical.
A couple differences I recall from the concert:
- on the DVD, you'll see two effeminate guy-dancers during the "Perform This Way" number; they were not in the concert I was at
- I remember two moments when Al was presenting the drummer, John "Bermuda" Schwartz, with a drum solo. Each time, it was just a second or two of a 'tune' and it was funny to see him all proud of his achievement. It was silly and the audience was all ready for a big solo that never happened. This isn't on the DVD. UPDATE: it's in one of the extra live performances
I was really hoping that, with the DVD, it wouldn't just be one song after another. I saw a cut-down, one-hour version of the concert on Comedy Central. During the concert, there were a lot of costume changes throughout the performance. During those moments, there were great "Al TV" segments and other bits. For example, he had mock interviews with Robert Plant or Eminem and they were great.Read more ›
