I am so upset right now. Yesterday I find out that not only is Weezer playing in Aspen, Colorado that day(!!!) but that was their second of two shows. I subscribe to the band page on Facebook and Twitter, check this site every week and never saw any mention of these shows! I only found out because of an article in the Denver Post about the bar they were playing at. That combined with the fact that tickets were $170 each makes me wonder if this was about the fans at all. I wouldn't even mind the ticket price (not to mention the 10-12 hour drive time, round trip) to see the guys if I only had enough time to get the cash! I really get the impression that this was all about catering to the Aspen crowd AND ONLY the Aspen crowd. The Flying W in my heart is flying a little lower today and I don't know how to feel about it.

Hey man, it sucks that you missed it but they did mention it on Twitter way back in October, here.. https://twitter.com/Weezer/status/394899945443971072  and also on this very site... http://weezer.com/profiles/blogs/new-shows-11-24-huntington-ny-the-...  ..and it's been listed under the "Events" tab on this site for about two months.

Well, I feel stupid! I can't believe I never saw either post! I still can't believe there was only these two instances to let people know about the shows. I feel much better at least knowing Weezer made the attempt to let us average fans know about this gig. Thanks a lot, man! I appreciate the info.

I'm right there with you.  We decided to go to my in-laws for Christmas, they live in Colorado Springs.  I found out about the Aspen show while it was happening through Karl's Instagram feed.

While I don't blame anyone but myself for not knowing about the show, it sure sucked to realize I was an hour away and missing the  show.  Oh well...

I check in monthly to see if there are any shows in my area.  I found out about the Aspen show about a month ago, and was able to purchase tickets and attend.  Although it was the most expensive show I've been to, it was fantastic.  I didn't get the feeling that the show only catered to the Aspen crowd.  There were quite a few drunk kids in the front row, and Rivers pulled some 18 year old kid on stage.  I met people from all over the midwest that were just as thrilled to be there as I was.  Sorry you missed it, but if they play there again... I'll see you there :-)

Aww that's too bad you weren't able to go. :(
