...MB '05 Tour: Day 123: The Tonight Show With Jay Leno - Burbank, CA
Today was weezer's second appearence on The Tonight Show, having first played it on July 27, 2001. However Pat can claim yet another personal appearance, as he was randomly selected to sing Elvis songs on a "Jaywalking" segment back on January 9, 2001.
For the first time I actually sat in the TV audience for the show, and was pleased to discover that the sound was quite excellent in the studio. The challenge, as always, would be in how it translated to TV, as there are a number of ways the sound can be (and many times is) messed with before it gets broadcast. However, today it seemed that everything went right. The band sounded tight, the sound was translated well to TV, the camera moves were good, and everone in the band got featured nicely. In my opinion this was the best weezer TV appearance of the year so far, and it was a real treat for it to go so well after such a long string of hard work for the band and crew over the last week.
...Check out Weezer hosting MTV2's T-Minus Rock (MTV2's Rock Countdown show) every day this week, Monday thru Friday from 11am - noon (est) or 8am - 11am (pst)! Weezer was interviewed by Jim Shearer for these segments of T-Minus Rock, and it went really well.
...In case you havent been paying attention: "Perfect Situation" has just been released to radio as the 3rd single from "Make Believe". Call your local station and request it! Let's push this great song to the heights it deserves!
...Plus the remaining Foozer shows in Long Beach, Portland, Seattle, and Oakland.
...Weezer on AOL Sessions (taping) on Wednesday 11/01 - air date TBA (schedule change)
