2011/10/09 Chicago: Congress Theater: RIOTfest

Today is a hard day for weezer and all weezer friends, fans, and family. While everyone is still in shock over  yesterday's tragic loss of Mikey Welsh, we know damn well he would never have wanted to stop the rock at today's RIOTfest, the show he was planning on attending. On the contrary, the rock was what he loved, both in music and art. To play the show and play it well tonight is to honor him and his memory. We have a feeling he will be watching.

Tonight weezer plays as part of the multi-day Chicago RIOTfest, with Chicago legends Urge Overkill who have reunited after a long hiatus, and who were also a big favorite of Mikey's. Also rocking tonight at the Congress Theater are Teenage Bottlerocket and White Mystery. As voted on by the fans, Weezer will include a complete performance of the Blue Album in their set tonight.

Mike Starr (Alice in Chains) + Mikey Welsh - my two favorite bands have lost their ex-bass players

yes, they dedicated the whole show to him, Rivers made some very endearing comments at the top of the show, right away...
