2011/07/09 Knebworth, England, UK: Sonisphere Festival

After an overnight drive from Ireland, including a 3.5 hour ferry ride and encore screenings of "Borat" and "Pulp Fiction" right off the bus's hard drive, we made our way to Knebworth in England, there the annual Sonisphere Festival is held on its stately grounds. "The pen is mightier than the sword" said Knebworth's Edward Bulwer Lytton, who probably would have had a hard time concentrating on his…

2011/07/08 Punchestown, Ireland: Oxegen Festival

...After an eventful planes trains and automobiles type day where team weezer was divided into various units who all tried to get to Ireland in different ways and different times (with highly varying degrees of success), everyone has finally reconvened in Dublin, a city that's hard not to love. Naps were had, delicious food was eaten, work was done, and streets were wandered. From there today we took a ride out to the country, to Punchestown… Continue

2011/07/05 Travel To London, England

After the 6 hour flight from Montreal, we arrived at Heathrow and were happy to find it was sunny, not too warm, with a little breeze. Speaking of breeze, we breezed thru immigration, baggage claim, and customs, with hardly any lines or waiting aside from a random 10 minute pause in middle of the baggage claim process. Then we zoomed into central London in little vans and in 45 min we were at the hotel, only having had to fight a little spot of traffic in a city which is… Continue

2011/07/02 Saint-Éphrem-de-Beauce, Quebec, Canada: Woodstock-en-Beauce Festival

Theres a lot of Canada that they wisely designated as "the hinterlands" many years ago - or perhaps there simply arent enough Canadians to fill up all the land they have! Either way, we are deep in the Canadian hinterlands today, marveling at the natural beauty and small town good vibes. The good vibe small town in question is Saint-Georges, which is a few miles from the Woodstock-en-Beauce festival site. The whole area is about 60 miles south of Quebec City, and only about 30… Continue

After several weeks in the woodshed, Team Weezer has assembled north of the border in Toronto to help Canada celebrate Canada Day. Its a sold out show, and the 25,000 attendees have been streaming in since they opened the gates mid afternoon. Actually, these might be the only 25,000 people left in Toronto, as it looked like just about everybody else was driving south on the QEW. But these 25,000 people are here to rock, and Weezer is here to rock them, along with Buck65, Hey… Continue
