I've wanted to see the Memories tour so badly, and I just got my tickets to Riot Fest.
I think that at a punk rock festival, people would love to hear older stuff compared to newer stuff.
Play it like Vegas, and play Blue and Pinkerton!
The crowd would respond more to that than newer hits like "Pork and Beans"
I know I would.
Anyone on this forum know if something like this might happen?
But its a punk festival, and its not really even a festival.
You pay to see Weezer individually, its just associated with Riot Fest.
Im thinking it might happen.

festival show means festival set.
Scott Heisel (journalist for Alternative Press) says more details about the show will be released on Wednesday. Doesn't sound like just greatest hits to me, Max. Maybe you'll get your wish.
It would feel kinda weird to do this though, since Chicago already had a Memories show in January. Not sure why they would get another one.
I understand that its a fest, but it is also more geared towards the individual shows as well, so its a little different.
I really wanted to go to the other shows this year, but do to money I have to stick with Weezer.
Exited about the news!!!!
The facebook for Congress Theater said "Big announcement coming your way via Weezer mext week... grab your tickets before they're gone". At first I figured this just meant that the other bands were being announced, but it would be weird for Weezer to be the one to give that news instead of Riot Fest, so I think it may be them playing the Blue Album or something along that line. I would like to find out who else is playing though too! But it actually is a festival. You can buy a pass for all the shows, which I do every year.
1. Where did everyone hear that there would be news on Wednesday? I can't find anything like that said anywhere.
2. For people that have gone to recent shows, do they sell the Blue and Pinkerton shirts at the shows, even if it isnt a Memories show?
