I'm curious to hear about other people's experiences with other Weezer fans at the concerts/events. So far I haven't really met any cool/nice Weezer fans. Most of the people I have into contact with have either been really rude or obnoxious.

I know a lot of people have formed awesome friendships through the shows, etc. So I am interested in hearing your best and or worst stories about experiences with other Weezer fans.

I have had good experiences. At the Memories Shows at the Gibson last year were amazing. Little to no douchie people. Got to meet Weezer both nights, too. Scott remembered me from both nights so that was cool. Interacted with the people that sat in the same section both nights and they were nice. I was mostly keep to myself as I didn't really want to bother anyone. For the most part, people have been nice. I didn't have a great time at the Huntington Beach show since it was free and super crowded. But that is due to a phobia of large groups of people. So I just hung out in the back and enjoyed the show. I can't wait to see the band again and am eagerly awaiting new music. 

At the Brixton show last year me and my friend bumped into a couple and the guy was crazy about Weezer just like me so we were talking for the whole time whilst we were waiting to go in. Just before we got in he asked to switch tickets because our tickets said the name of the opening act and his didn't, but his ones didn't actually work so he quickly gave us our ones back whilst it all got sorted out. When Weezer were playing we were singing along to all the words and at the end a roadie was giving out the setlists so I shouted 'its his birthday!' loads of times and they gave it to him, I always caught a drumstick!. We had to run to the train station which was fun on the way back to get the last train, but at one point we had to switch trains with each other, but we still stay in contact

When I first saw weezer in 2009, there were two drunk sisters behind me and this was before the show started. One of them got a cell phone call from her dad, and as she was trying speak to him the other sister grabbed the cell and started yelling the Say It Ain't So bridge into the phone. It was pretty funny and they were nice. 

When I saw weezer last year, when they were playing a festival thing opening for the tragically hip, my cousin and I got in line really early to be the first in line for the show and get a good spot at the front. The second group of people were a group of college guys who turned out to be really cool. They offered to hold our spot in line if we ever needed to use the washroom or anything. I remember we got into a discussion about weezer and one guy ( jokingly) started defending raditude of the best album of all time or something. It was pretty funny. 


I think weezer fans are nice once you get to talk to them. Stereotypically, weezer fans are pretty awkward and 'nerdy' people, and that's why some of us relate to Rivers' geeky songwriting. So you can't really go to a weezer concert and not expect strange/awkward/obnoxious people. But from experience, if you start up a conversation they all turn out to be pretty funny and friendly. 

I've met many great people at various Weezer shows. I've been fortunate enough to have people walk up to me and ask if I'm Gohi (although I hate hearing people say that sn).

The one that sticks out the most is this really beautiful girl I met at the Austin Blue album show in June last year. She asked if she could stand in front of me (because I am tall, sort of) and then we started talkin'. She said she was going to another country for school and so she had to miss Pinkerton. We talked a bit about our favorite Weezer songs. I was trying to figure out how to get her number and then when the band came out I lost track of her. She probably ran away.

were you pokin her from behind gohi? you know that ain't cool at a show

I have had some good experiences, but mainly terrible ones.  Kind of like these forums. 

I hate people that stand around at rock shows, which in-turn probably makes those people hate me because I'm always jumping up and down, dancing and singing along.

Everyone I have met have been so nice! I always say Weezer fans are the best!

Try keeping your shirt on, Gregor.  That might help.
