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
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)
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.
