E a causa del Covid salta di nuovo il giro di concerti di Dog Stab! che i Residents avevano in programma in mezza Europa nelle prossime settimane. Tutte rinviate di un anno le date previste: ai fan non resta che cercare di consolarsi con i documenti audio e video pubblicati da Grand Chess Records in seguito a una delle pochissime uscite del 2021, quella di inizio giugno per l'anniversario di Night Flight filmata da John Sanborn.

Originally conceived as a tour to support the new album Metal, Meat & Bone (the songs of Alvin Snow, aka Dyin' Dog), with a second set of Duck Stab material to fill out the evening, this show underwent a few changes when it was cancelled two (and a half) times due to the Covid-19 pandemic that hit in 2020. The North American tour was originally scheduled for April and May of that year, but was postponed for a full year, and then to August and September of 2021. Eventually all but the California dates were cancelled. A European tour scheduled for early 2022 has been postponed to 2023. During the downtime, The Residents went into a studio to record a performance of Duck Stab to be featured on Night Flight's 40th anniversary program. By the time the public California performances finally did happen, the show began to be billed as the 50th anniversary tour, with an encore performance of The Third Reich 'n' Roll.
