Perform This Way: The Music Video

Postby TMBJon » Wed May 04, 2011 9:33 am

If Al is indeed Performing This Way on his first night of the tour, he will probably release the video first. Has Al ever debuted a costume on tour before releasing the video? I think he would more likely not play the song until the video was out. Interesting timing. It's possible this video could debut before May 19. Within the next two weeks.

Any speculation on what you think Al has planned?

You purpose and interesting question. I would hope that he would release the video first before the tour. I mean the album is due next month. Its a reasonable time frame from the albums due date. I suppose I should get on seeing Lady Ga Ga's version of the video before I see Al's.

You'd think if he was shooting a live action video, he'd have it all done before the tour, even editing if he has a say in it.

He is probably shooting it now since some of his latest few tweets were in a way about it and he has not tweeted anything in the past few days so he is probably busy either filming it or developing it. So it could be releases in a few weeks and in time for the tour. I dont see why he wouldnt perform his new single in concert even if the album wont be out for a month. Other artists do it all the time, some do it even earlier.

At least once, yes. He started performing "Pentiums" in concert in full Diddy guise before the video was released.

Thats true! But it was the second single off the album, the album was out and people would have known the song well from the CD. I was wondering about this though, I assume he will be doing it though, even though I couldn't care less.

It'd be hilarious if the video wasn't out yet and instead of performing in a Gaga-themed costume, he performed the song in the Fat suit or the Amish gear :lol:

But yeah, I think he's working on the video now. Besides the slow down on his tweets, didn't an Al surfer find the ad taken out for a casting call for a contortionist?
in a complicated song does it look like al has no head

I'm hoping he'll get Ruben (and the other BITB) to put on some ridiculous outfit when performing this in concert! :lol:

However, don't forget that RWS was out before iTunes was making it as easy for people to release and acquire singles prior to an album release (back in the days of premiering things on the radio, ahhh miss those days), so by the time Al is touring this month, the song will have been out for a month already, so why wouldn't people have the ability to know the song already.

In regards to the video, however, I have little doubt that it will be out more than two weeks before the album comes out, maybe three or so at most, but that is just because it would probably help drive the album a lot more in June than it would if it was released now, let alone much more anytime before the month of June.
