2013/01/08 Australasia Tour 2013: Jakarta, Indonesia: Lapangan Senayan Stadium
At long last the first show of the Australasia Tour is here, at a walled in outdoor area at the Lapangan Senayan Stadium in Jakarta. It rained quite a bit today so the grounds are quite wet and muddy (say goodbye to your shoes), but now the skies have cleared for the evening and the people have flooded in, and they are clearly ultra excited and ready to rock. It's about time we did this!
Outside the show area they set up a side stage where local bands have been entertaining the crowds before the main gates opened (and continue to till weezer starts), plus they had a giant weezer display that people have been taking their picture with while waiting to rock out. The vibes are great, the local staff has been super helpful, the tech people and our crew have been kicking ass and everything is ready to go - its time for the band and the crowd to join up for some magic. Thank you Indonesia!!!
