Ladies and gentlemen, The MOB is thrilled to be back in New Orleans! We have many fond memories of Bourbon Sreet, if "memories" is how you describe waking up with a strange tattoo and a half-eaten alligator.

It's always a party in New Orleans, but it's even more exciting during the annual Voodoo Fest. We know from folklore that Voodo is a key element to getting revenge or your true love. We have something like that in Houston, but we call it: money.
Live and Let Die
Show Assistants take large poles and ram them into the band's Voodoo-doll shape. An appropriately-hated character (on field) convulses in pain corresponding to the poles' (pins') positions. Giant scissors are used to cut a limb off of the formation.
With Halloween coming, it's time to prepare for the putrid stench of mindless zombies seeking pagan debauchery.
Then again, you see that every night in the French Quarter.
Smiley face. As the song progresses, shifts into a skull. (Bottom of circle pinches inwards and eye dots transform into X's.)
Two groups of Show Assistants dress as party-goers and zombies. They wander the field, with the party-goers playing drinking games and doing keg-stands. Eventually, these yummy morsels are eaten by the zombies.
Once again, thanks for having us, New Orleans! After experiencing Ike, we must agree that the best hurricanes are at Pat O'Brien's!

Leave the field, swirling away as we go.
