|Well, today's the day we had to say goodbye to our old buddies in Ozma and our new friends in Saves The Day. The tour was all too short, but I think everyone had a lot of fun on this one. Aside from one scary bus tire blowout and 'The Sickness', some kind of crazy flu that struck late in the tour, I'd say everything went pretty well. Today also brought a sweet bonus: home made cookies dropped off by my mom, in mass quantites enough to satisfy the needs of the whole weez camp. Pat was sure that it was this pre-show treat that gave him the energy to attack the drums tonight, as he is still battling The Sickness. Meanwhile, Rivers's version of The Sickness has attacked his voice, so besides singing, he's saying hardly a word till it gets better!
The Mars Music Ampitheatre has apparently been recently plagued by a bunch of road construction making it a nightmare to get in and park. There were fears that the negative press about the venue would keep weezer fans away, but in the end there was definitely a nice big crowd, singing along and rocking out in the cool night air.
