Weezer performed in Clovis, California for the KFRR New Rock 104.1 Birthday Bash on September 17, 2000 as the final show of the Summer 2000 Tour. The show ended with Mikey Welsh setting his bass on fire and slamming it against the ground while the rest of the band jammed which led to a short performance of Van Halen's "Eruption".

The Clovis Show took place in a big fenced-in zone of a water park, so we watched people sliding down the refreshing water halfpipes and stuff while we toiled in the sun, struggling to get a very rough sound system to obey our wishes. This show was another low-budget adventure, with incompetent sound company people to keep in line and some seriously poor PA systems to fix up to weezer standards. As the other bands went through their sets, our crew worked hard to get things working right in time for weezers 7 PM set.

of course, whats a rural outdoor rock festival without 100 extra police around, ready to kick everyones ass on a moments notice? here we see some of Clovis' "finest", as well as their canine and equine partners...there they are even sniffing around weezer's bus!

Even poor catering, police overkill, terrible sound equipment and a chronic shortage of bottled water could not stop weezer from taking that stage and rocking it to the ground. The 5000+ crowd roared in approval!

...and in the end, Mikey did what he had to do... ignite his bass, to pay tribute to the gods of rock n roll!

...The police (by now in riot helmets and wielding truncheons) were disturbed by all this rock, but fortunately didnt jump in and arrest everyone. The band then sat down and signed autographs for all who would wait in line for them... About 500 kids waited, which was impressive considering that the cops wanted to force everyone to leave immediately...all in all an awesome end to an awesome tour...
