Last night I went to Edgefest, and the show was great, Weezer played a really long set, but I was surprised when they sang atleast one song off of each album with the exception of Hurley. And they never really mentioned that Hurley had been released fairly recently. It seems like most weezer fans like the album atleast better than Raditude, and Hurley might not have sold as well as Raditude, but I think that could change if they tried to advertise it more by singing songs like Memories or Hang On live. Obviously people like the earliest albums best, but sometimes hearing a song live can completely change your perspective on it, so maybe if people could see a Hurley song live they would grow a new appreciation for the album.
What do you all think? And maybe I'm wrong, I don't know what songs they played in Birmingham.
I think if the members of Weezer read this, they would be a bit confused. They just had a very successful Memories Tour and it now has them playing more old songs instead of just singles. If I was a member of Weezer, I'd read this and think, "Wait, it was the lack of attention to the new material that has us playing more songs from Blue and Pinkerton again in the first place. That's why Hurley isn't being featured in sets."
The demand is greater for nostalgia and lesser for recent material. That's just the way it is.
Five seems a little much for an album that most of the audience won't own / love.
I think 1 would be too many.
Someone post a screen cap or link to said twitter post. I don't wanna be excited over nothin.
i'm glad. i hate hurley. imo, it's their worst album ever...
