So maybe I don’t remember when Weezer opened up for Live, but I DEFINITELY remember this show. This particular tour was in support of their Blue Album. After almost a year from its release date, Weezer had become pretty damn popular. I was super excited to see them live. And from the amount of people who showed up to this show, I wasn’t the only one. I always loved the Metro as a live venue because it wasn’t a huge space & it was usually pretty easy to get close enough to the stage to enjoy the show. Well, that just didn’t work out on this particular evening. When I say it was crowded, it was PACKED!! I had no desire to push through the crowd, so my boyfriend, his brother, & I actually hung out on the balcony. I had to force my way up to the front of the balcony, so I could truly enjoy the show, which I did. But it was a constant struggle to find a good view throughout the performance. I remember Rivers Cuomo coming out in his little sweater and glasses and looking all kinds of dorky. I loved it! He totally reminded me of Mr. Rogers. They had a great set list, focusing mainly on their most current songs:
I was in love with this album, so I enjoyed it tremendously. The opening band was ok. I don’t remember liking them too much. They obviously didn’t make much of an impact since I never got into them. Weezer, though, did it for me then & still does it for me now!! GREAT show!
