|The first night of the Memories Tour was consigned to history tonight, with a packed Gibson Amphitheater seeing Weezer nail the entire Blue album, after a rousing set of other album's hits, including the Pinkerton track "Falling For You" which wasn't a "hit" by radio standards but is certainly a very much well loved "hit" by hardcore weezer fan standards! Certain songs had not been tackled by the band in many years, like "Holiday" and "Only In Dreams". And "The World Has Turned" hasn't been played on stage by weezer in 16 years!
It was an emotional night for yours truly, having been on the weezer scene for 18 years running now. And the audience was clearly as stoked as I. Many chills were running down many many backs...
At the same time, like with any tour, once you have the first show you see what could be improved. And the tweaks and minor adjustments are coming that will take us into the stratosphere!
Thanks to all for enduring my Memories slideshow during the intermission. It sounded like most people really enjoyed the trip down memory lane. I enjoyed hosting it!
Huge props to all fans, all old school fans, all original fanclub members, all RWA-ers, all boardies no matter what site you hang out on, and the I Love All Access VIPers who looked pretty darn stoked with their meet-n-greet with the band, backstage pre-show tour (w/ yours truly), VIP only merchandise goody bag, and front row spots! Thansk to the ILAA folks for kicking butt and Im looking forward to working with you on all these shows. Ups to Jorge who sang on "If Youre Wondering.." with Rivers, Bethany from Best Coast who sang with Rivers on "Island", Elena Jensen and all the old schoolers in attendance, and to the people who came VERY far to see this show - Australia, Japan, France... you know who you are... thanks.
Post show, Brian ran up to the merch booth to do a special signing of his new Relationship CD. He had the full on notary public set up, making sure each of his autographs was official! He will continue to do this at every Memories show, FYI!
