4wish it was more complete...  Oct 14, 2011 By GratedTopping
I saw Al in concert in Florida a few days ago and it was fantastic. However, I wasn't that pleased with this DVD.

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. Also, there were silly parts from his "UHF" movie...other flicks (like from the first "Naked Gun" movie)...and mentions of him in various TV shows. To me, these were some of the best parts of the concert that had me cracking up and I was so disappointed they were not on the DVD. I wanted to see the full thing!

Ultimately, I liked seeing the concert on DVD, of course -- but it turned out that it was the stuff in between the songs that had a major impact on the enjoyment. It got me to laugh a lot, and the audience was cracking-up as well. This also built up anticipation for the next song.

This DVD loses a star for me. Al's great and it's good to have, but I recommend seeing this truly live for a better experience.

5Funny parodies in song  Nov 17, 2011 By Peter Tsang
"'Weird Al' Yankovic Live! The Alpocalypse Tour," blu-ray is an unusual comedic show done in parody in regard to song and performance. Sometimes, I know what Mr. Yankovic is parodying, but other times, I have to think, "what is he imitating and making of?". I recognize the melodies, but not the original songs.

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.

The track list from the concert follows.

Polka Face
TMZ
Smells Like Nirvana
Skipper Dan
Party in the CIA
CNR
Let Me Be Your Hog
Canadian Idiot
Wanna B Ur Lovr
Medley: Money for Nothing, Beverly Hillbillies, Whatever You Like, Another Tattoo, eBay, I Want a New Duck, Theme from Rocky XIII, Spam, My Bologna, Ode to a Superhero, Lasagna, Eat It
Amish Paradise
Craigslist
Perform This Way
White & Nerdy
Fat
The Saga Begins
Yoda

The concert is one hour and 25 minutes. It was filmed at Massey Hall, in Toronto, on July 16, 2011.

The blu-ray has four extra or bonus features.

1. More Songs! (under 14 minutes)
Frank's 2000" TV
You Don't Love Me Anymore
You Make Me

2. Music Videos! (7 minutes, 42 seconds)

Polka Face

3. Al's Youtube Clips! (3 minutes, 36 seconds)
(8) Youtube clips

4. Other Junk! (10 minutes, 49 seconds)
And the Band Played on
You've Got ... Lustrous Hair
One on One
The Five-Haiku Interview

4How can you not love Weird Al?  Oct 06, 2011 By Jason Peckman
I saw Weird Al in Denver on 9/20 and the show was great. This was the fourth time I have seen him live, and while each show has been magnificent, no two shows are identical. I watched the Comedy Central "Alpocalypse" special and it featured a few songs that he did not perform in Denver. He interacts with the audience and makes you part of the show (literally). My girlfriend was not familiar with his work beyond "Eat It" and "Fat", but she enjoyed the show and laughed out loud through "CNR". Weird Al is terribly under appreciated, and once you get it, you will be hooked for life!

5It Doesn't Get Any Weirder  Mar 11, 2012 By Jacquelyn Hamby
I had the pleasure of seeing "Weird" Al Yankovic when he was on "The Alpocalypse Tour" in 2011 and was wondering why he didn't have a dvd of this tour. I'm glad he finally made one and it doesn't get any weirder than Al. Although singing "Canadian Idiot" was concidered a compliment for the folks there in Canada, (which the concert was filmed), but that's what Yankovic does. When he parody's your song, he's a fan and is paying you a compliment in his "weird" way. If you are a fan then you will really like this show. He not only does his major hits like "Eat It", and "Fat" but his new hit singles "Party In The CIA" and "Perform This Way", which he appears on stage in a peacock costume, poking fun at Gaga in a way. Each song has a costume change that goes with the theme of that song and it makes it a lot more fun to watch too. Special features are really hillarious to watch, especially his youtube videos and unseen concert footage. But if you are a Yankovic fan then you will really like this dvd!
