I was there for both. Rivers wore my green hat. I was so happy about that. My dad got pictures of him with it on, and I even got it BACK! Also, to top it off, I got my Relationships CD signed by Brian and a picture with him. Overall, the best weekend of my life. Hearing you guys play Across The Sea was absolutly outstanding. And also, Jamie was a very nice surprise. I didn't expect to hear you guys play that until I saw the roadie change the setlist like 20 minutes before the show. My dad zoomed in with his camera and turned out, it was Jamie. Very awesome weekend.

I was there for Blue, and I loved that Rivers felt compelled to traverse the crowd -- putting on a woman's jacket (and having trouble because of a scarf in the sleeve), coming to the back of the crowd and rocking out; He really gave ALL the fans an up-close experience and I just thought that was so cool and organic feeling for the "greatest hits" set.  And so glad we got a Pinkerton tune in the first set, too.  I agree with prev posters about the moshing -- I was in the center area that had a large circle of moshing that some people were getting annoyed at (I wasn't, but I can see why some would) but it was mainly just enthusiasm for songs we've never heard live! "World has Turned" was a highlight! And the slideshow -- Karl, "you da man".  Some sweet sentimental stuff that made me feel like I was really part of the family.   Free energy - loved the main singer' dance moves!

This was an epic weekend for me.  I was at both shows and was VIP for the Pinkerton show.  The guys are so nice and welcoming, and they know how to rock!  I'm with you guys on saying it's the best set of =w= shows I've ever seen, and this puts me at like 12 or so now.


Brian, what you said is true about the moshing during Pinkerton.  I was right up front by the barricade and got crushed between people so tight I could barely breathe at times.  But it was still a great show!  I can't believe they played Jamie!!!!!

I agree.  It was the greatest Weezer concert I've ever seen.  I met so many great people and had an awesome time.  Jamie and Susanne were amazing treats.  And The energy during every song was like nothing I've ever experienced before.  And even the warm up band, Free Energy, wasn't bad.  Thanks a lot Weezer and Karl!!!

This was THE BEST weezer show I have ever seen, Not much could top this show tonight. Jamie and Susanne followed by Only in Dreams priceless. The only thing I could complain about was some fans were getting a little to violent, as a huge fan of metal I see it and do it all the time but at weezer concerts a "pit" doesnt really have a place its not moshing music its rocking music. Saw to many kids getting crushed, knocked over, one guy was bleeding, and another two starting fighting each other. I mean really guys and Gals? I think weezer has one of the greatest fan base and we are all here to have fun, but I think tonight went a little to far. Im not saying my experience was ruin in any way but this is something that shouldnt become a Weezer tradition.

Literally just got back from Pinkerton in NYC tonight. I was blown away by hearing "Jamie" and Susanne" live! It's been a long time coming man. Pinkerton was cool to see from start to finish, but honestly, the intermission I could have did without...lost some steam there energy wise. But once "Tired of Sex" kicked in all was forgotten. Strange set list for the first half, no Raditude was a bit shady, but I'd take some vintage B-sides over "I'm Your Daddy" any day. Would've been sweet if Matt Sharp flew in on a helicopter like his "Waiting" video and played at least ONE song!
