10/02/08 Troublemaker Tour Show 12: Chicago - Allstate Arena


Back to sweet home Chicago! Tonights show at the O'Hare adjacent Allstate Arena was big rock as expected, though the vibe in the room felt a bit subdued for some odd reason. No real crowdsurfing going on, though the peeps were indeed loud! One never can tell how it's going to feel untill the lights and the gear is set up and the people are let in. The band delivered and the crowd cheered and sang along, though I couldnt help but feeling that Chicago wasnt quite the same as the last time through. Perhaps the Sox/Cubs matchup had people a bit distracted. Who knows, maybe it was just me? Oh wait, I know - it was the absence of Anuj, original Weezer.net webmaster (1995-1999) - usually he makes it to every Chicago area show, but was not able to make it down tonight. I'm tellin' ya, it had an effect! Anuj - missed ya buddy!

Also - to the post show Chi-town parking lot peeps - meant to chill with ya a bit, but somehow you dudes vanished by the time I got back outside?! Sorry about the delay.

Here are some pix from tonight's show (click on them to see them bigger)




New Webisode #11 "The Flame Of Desire" is now up exclusively on Weezer's Myspace Page! check it out!

RIVERS NEEDS YOUR STICKERS! Rivers needs to decorate his drum kit (the one on the side of the stage, not Pat's in the middle), and he wants stickers to do it. Years ago, you served my father in the Clone Wars; now - er, wait - I mean, years ago, Rivers asked for stickers for his guitar, and hundreds of you tossed envelopes loaded with crazy stickers onstage for days - his Stratocasters were quickly plastered! Can we count on you guys to come thru again? However you can get them to us works - if you see me (in the pit or elsewhere), pass 'em over - if youre close to the stage, toss em up there! Just write "Stickers for Rivers Drums" on the envelope! Thanks people!
