Any idea what the new intro music is to Bob and co. walking up on stage? It sounds sort of like a movie soundtrack maybe? Lot's of horns, it has a clint eastwood riding on a horse through the wilderness type of feel

You can hear it here at the start of the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUiCuRYQJxw

Pretty sure it's the main theme to John Ford's How The West Was Won (start at around 10 seconds in and it's nearly identical). Original score by Alfred Newman.

Alfred E. Newman was not only funny, but talented too!

Since Stu's acoustic folk song instrumentals no longer open the show, seems like they've gone back to streaming a classical, orchestral piece as an opener. What is it exactly? I'm very familiar with it, I just can't put a title to it - from a film score perhaps? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_G6YZPz_7s

Or even a skosh. I really did like Spy vs. Spy and the way you fold the back page in to answer some kind of riddle. It's been a long time.

Oh man, memories! That really was the best part of getting a new Mad magazine!

It may have changed periodically this leg, but some nights it’s been an excerpt from Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Except at least Phoenix and Tucson, when they walked out, led by George, in a somewhat awkward silence...

Yeah, thought so Pie.
Had noticed some change - thanks for confirming, ID’ing.

What was it a couple nights ago?
What will it be tonight (in Charlotte)?

The three nights this weekend, it sounded to me like the Jaws Theme? I don't know it very well, but if not, it was some classical piece that sounds an awful lot like it. Haha.

Glad to see them mixing it up.

Last night (11 Nov) in Richmond, KY the intro music was definitely Stravinsky's The Rite Of Spring
