Weezer performed at the Ogden Theater in Denver, CO on November 6, 1994 as part of the Blue Album Tour. The band opened for Live.

Overview

This show is notable for being one of only two Weezer concerts to have been performed without Rivers Cuomo. Cuomo got sick and lost his voice on November 4, 1994 and was unable to sing for three days. As a result, Weezer's tourmates Live played without an opening act that night in Seattle, WA as a stop-gap. When Cuomo still wasn't ready to sing the next day, however, Live's management "threatened to find another opener," according to Karl Koch[1]. Pat Wilson, Brian Bell, and Matt Sharp agreed to play without him, performing an acoustic set and somehow dividing up vocal responsibilities. Cuomo's "Catalog of Riffs" archive corroborates this story, noting "Rivers couldn't sing" next to the November 5 date, as well as "Pat & Matt? play accoustic [sic]" by this November 6 date in Denver.[2].

This Denver show was perhaps more notable, as it featured the live debut of "Friends of P.,"[3] a song Sharp had only first recorded about a year prior[4].[Note 1]

According to Karl Koch in a Weezerpedia Discord Server Q&A, the three did Space Twins, Friends of P. and two Rentals songs, and Special Goodness songs. The set likely ended with Undone - The Sweater Song and possibly Buddy Holly.[5]
