Weezer Gig Date Mysteriously Disapears from Pollstar Schedule

I subscribe to tour schedule updates on a site called Pollstar.com.  If you haven't checked it out, it is the website of record for all touring acts, worldwide. 

 

The notification system they offer sends me an email whenever my selected artists tour schedule is updated within my specified radius from my home of 200 miles.  A few weeks ago, I got one for Weezer playing in Greenwich, CT on July 23rd at Conyers Farm Polo Field. Since they have a few wacky venues on their tour schedule this year, I thought it was legit.

 

A day or two later, the listing was pulled from Pollstar.  I contacted the management at the Polo field and they said my information was incorrect.

 

Greenwich is a crazy place in the fact that, I've seen concerts listed in Pollstar for Greenwich for big named acts like James Taylor, Dione Warwick, John Mayer etc, and there is no publicity about them anywhere.  They are usually benefit concerts in some wealthy person's backyard.  But Pollstar lists them all the same.

 

I'm wondering if this is one of those over-the-top Sweet 16 parties where the parents went out of their way to book Weezer for a private party for several hundred of the kid's closest friends.

 

Or it was a typo. 

 

Anyone know anything about this phantom gig?

If you were able to get in, why didn't you stay? It's a free Weezer show aswell as a rich kids party -.-

So, turns out, it was a private gig at the polo grounds.  I don't even know who it was for or what the occasion was.  

I drove in early in the day by just telling the guard I was there for the Weezer show.  He took me for a worker and waved me through.  

As I drove in I saw that is was a white table cloth affair and guessed I probably wasn't on the guest list.   Here is a photo of the setup this morning.  It looked pretty posh.  Air conditioned tents, stemware, floral arrangements, outdoor living room furniture.  I'm thinking I wasn't too far off with some rich person's kid's birthday party.  I wonder if I'll ever know?

 

Yeah, the worst they could do is throw you out.

It was 11am and I had no idea how I'd stay there all day. It was a big open field.  No place to hang out till the gig.  Sweltering heat.  I couldn't figure out how to do it.

 

Also, I found out later, through this link that there were 4 bands playing, http://anknotts.tumblr.com/.  Check out the photos on the site. 

Who is Mike?

You missed out on the Outlaws, Cracker, Weezer, and Everclear... Aren't The Outlaws those guys that wrote Green Grass and High Tides?

I know.  Don't rub it in.  I noticed there were 6 tour busses.  And I thought that was a lot for Weezer, but I thought, maybe it was the crew.  Or perhaps it was a movie crew as they are shooting a big movie in Greenwich at the moment.  It looked so over the top, it didn't hit me that there were multiple bands.  

 

The Mike dude must be rolling in cash.

You should plan a daring heist. Then one day you can have a party with 4 bands
