Big Bird introduces who he'll be bringing: his back-up singers (the Tweet-Along Little Birdies) and a giant rock (which Telly carries). Big Bird explains that his tour will go everywhere, and with a map, he describes the route: first the Fix-It Shop, then Hooper's Store, and finally at the bus stop.
Big Bird and his group go over what they need for their tour: the microphone, Big Bird's costume, the back-up singers, and the rock. Telly points out the two things they left out: music and songs.
Big Bird has finished the music, and tells the band it's time to rehearse. Telly asks that if he can pretend to hold the rock since it's only a rehearsal, but Big Bird says that everything has to be perfect, so he has to carry the rock. The back-up singers can't seem to get in the right place (behind him), forcing Telly to be in immense pain.
At the Fix-It Shop, Luis is puzzled to hear an announcer call out Big Bird's Yellow Ambition Tour. Big Bird welcomes his audience (Luis), and performs "The Rock Song".
At Hooper's Store, Luis tells Mr. Handford about Big Bird's concert. Big Bird enters (after his announcer's introduction) and gives his biggest fan, Luis, a shout-out. He introduces his next number: his first one was a rock song, so his next song is a rock and roll song! The band performs "You Cannot Eat a Rock", about how he receives a roll from a baker. Telly now has to carry the roll and the rock.
Luis waits at the bus stop, and once again finds himself the audience of Big Bird's rock concert. The band performs "Gimme Some Rock 'n Roll" with a clock and a sock (and camera effects). Telly is once again forced to provide visual aids. When the song is over, Big Bird hounds the "stage" and takes a bow, causing Luis to miss his bus.
Big Bird announces that the tour is over. As the back-up singers leave, Big Bird helps Telly put down his rock. Big Bird notices how heavy it is, as Telly comments, "They shouldn't call it rock music--they should call it BOULDER music!!" Telly refuses to do any more rock-carrying for the next tour. Big Bird assures him that there won't be any more rock-carrying next time; instead, they'll be doing heavy metal. Telly faints, as Luis tells the sponsors.
