|Well, in many other states, a hot summertime day leads to a cool evening. But Arizona collects a hell of a lot of heat over the course of a summer day, and the air remained fairly furnace-like for the whole show. Not that that was a problem, as the Arizonans know that heat rock, and rock they did. Weezer was 'on fire' as well, with a killer setlist, bombastic performance and all kinds of interesting comments from Rivers and the gang. The Cricket Pavilion was not sold out, but was still more full than the previous San Antonio gig, and a bit louder and rowdier as well. Speaking of rowdy, tonights show saw the first stage diver at a weezer gig in a long time! Despite the professional security staff in place, somehow a lone dude slipped by, ran out in front of Scott, and dove the 12 feet over the pit back into the crowd. Well, I hope he reached Enlightenment. Kids, dont try this, its no fun to miss the rest of the show when you get the boot!
