Is that a little wheeze you have there?

Last night I went to see Weezer.

Today I feel old and broken.

It was such a good night, such a good band, no pretentions, no bullshit just fun and good songs.




The set list:

Undone - The Sweater Song

My Name Is Jonas

El Scorcho

Holiday

Pink Triangle

Susanne

Island in the Sun

(With intro about London by Rivers)

Teenage Dirtbag (Wheatus cover)

The Good Life

The World Has Turned and Left Me Here

Say it Ain't So

Tired of Sex

You Gave Your Love to Me Softly

Pork and Beans

Across the Sea

The Greatest Man That Ever Lived (Variations on a Shaker Hymn)

Only in Dreams

Paranoid Android  (Radiohead cover)

Encore:

Hash Pipe

Buddy Holly

During the show Rivers spied a kid in the audience that had an outfit on that he approved of and he said he could come up on stage to sing  along to a song and let him pick which song and true to his word he remembered and called the kid up on stage.  The show ended with all of Weezer behind the drumkit.

I don't care if you like the band or not, there is a lot that 'celebrities' could learn from the behaviour of a band that have been around a long time, have been successful for a long time, and have no silly airs and graces.

  1. That band sounds familiar to me, On the radio long ago they played a few songs constantly, for got the titles tho. I cant go to such events, but im glad you had a great time and i agree with you on that such public people are a major influence to others and am glad weezer is one group that shows the good behavior, whereas Prince made sexually absene siloette at a sporting event, and i heard that taylor swift flashed her breasts at a concert some months ago.

  2. Buddy Holly was a massive hit of theirs some years ago! They are such a good band. The singer is funny - he gets his geek side and plays up to it in a humorous way. I hear you about some bands today and some of the crowds that you get out there, kind of unnecessary.
