The bizarre and hilarious works of Lonely Island were on full show at The Armory in Minneapolis Saturday night, complete with some unexpected special guests.

The comedy trio of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer brought their increasingly weighty back catalog of parody songs to Minneapolis, the last stop on their first ever live tour.

But the Lonely Island weren't alone after all, with their fellow SNL alum Seth Meyers performing the introduction a night after he performed standup at the Pantages Theatre for the Minneapolis Comedy Festival.

Things took a turn for the bizarre halfway through the set as former MLB MVP Jose Canseco came on stage after the performance of "Jose and Mark," the Lonely Island's Netflix special about Canseco and Mark McGwire (which features multiple references to steroids).

Wielding a baseball bat and looking absolutely ripped, Canseco led the crowd in the chorus before making his exit.

Elsewhere, there was a "live" video appearance from Michael Bolton for their collaboration on "Captain Jack Sparrow," while Samberg and a puppet Justin Timberlake recreated their SNL duets that include "D*** in a Box" and "Motherlover."

The 80-minute, 30-song/skit set hit on most of the hits from Lonely Island YouTube, SNL and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, opening with "J*** in my Pants" and closing with "I'm On A Boat."
