Conan Kicks Off Tour, Performs 'I Will Survive' (VIDEO)

Conan has returned. For months, we've been teased with Conan tweets, Cheetos, and billboards. But yesterday was a big day for the real deal. First, the TBS news. And then, the opening night of his live tour.

According The Comic's Comic, the show kicked off with appearances by Andy Richter, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, and Masturbating Bear, who has been rechristened "Self-Pleasuring Panda" to avoid a sticky situation with NBC over intellectual property.

Here's a clip of Conan fronting his band for a rousing rendition of "I Will Survive." Fitting song selection. No sign of Max Weinberg, but La Bamba's definitely in tow.
