Once in a while, despite having traveled the world to rock out for nearly 30 years, weezer sets up the rock at a new (to them) location. While this show was the 3rd ever weezer show in Indonesia, it was their first ever in the beautiful resort town of Bali. The legends of Bali proved true for the weez, everyone was blown away by the natural beauty of the island and the warm kindness shared by the locals. This show's rundown is provided once again by longtime weezer Fan Club member #1312, Hasief Ardiasyah, who has been holding down weezer fandom in Indonesia since the 90's!

"...Taking place at the kind of breathtaking locale that "Island in the Sun" could've been written about, Weezer's headlining set at Road to Now Playing Festival in Peninsula Nusa Dua, Bali turned out to be just as epic in its own right as the Jakarta show three nights earlier. Besides the big hits, the band also brought out deeper cuts like the Blue Album's "The World Has Turned and Left Me Here" (for the first time since 2019 apparently) and Pinkerton era b-side "I Just Threw Out the Love of My Dreams" which has received a new lease on life recently. Rivers even modified his now-famous Indonesian banter and specifically tailored it to the Bali crowd, making it all the more memorable for all in attendance.

You could also see the extent of Weezer's influence on the Indonesian bands on the bill. Ariel, superstar frontman of Noah, was down in the crowd and singing along to "Say It Ain't So" like he was transported back to his days of covering the song when he was still a junior high kid in Bandung. Meanwhile, Ario and Pandu of Jakarta favorites The Adams got onstage to add something special to Weezer's second performance of "Anak Sekolah" and most likely the last...unless Rivers, Brian, Scott and Patrick come back to Indonesia. Considering how fun these two shows were, why wouldn't they return? Let's just hope it doesn't take over eight years next time..."
