I’m so sorry to have to be the bearer of bad news, but Al shaved later that same day, before he played the Cannery concert.
I like to call his facial hair the come-and-goatee. He seems to let it grow when he’s on vacation (he mentioned once in an interview that his wife likes it, and that strikes me as a sufficiently good reason)and go clean-shaven when he’s on tour. It’s probably easier for the audience to see his facial expressions when he’s not sporting any facial hair… and do you REALLY want to see him parody Lady Gaga while wearing a goatee?
