Weezer -- Windsor, Ontario -- July 11th, 2013

I had seen Weezer once before circa 2002 at Pine Knob on their tour w/ Sparta, Loudermilk, and Hometown Hero. I LOVED that show, so I made the trip across the river to land of hockey, beer, and Bryan Adams to see Weezer at Ceasar's Casino in Windsor. I pictured this place being a little 2,000 seat theater. I was wrong. This place was HUGE. It was probably 8,000 people, and the place was completely full. Weezer absolutely rocked the house, and the crowd was having a ball. Wow, what a fun show! Normally I'm not a huge fan of that genre of music, but these guys write great songs, and there's a sincerity about them that I love. They're also the coolest nerds in the world! The setlist was fantastic. They opened w/ "My Name Is Jonas" and then basically played all their hits. I would've loved to have heard "Only In Dreams" and "Why Bother," but maybe next time. Before playing "We Are All On Drugs" Rivers talked about taking too much Advil & Tylenol mixed w/ soda pop. hahaha. Before playing "Dope Nose" they announced it was Scott's birthday, and he sang that song. Normally I am not a fan of "Beverly Hills," but that was one of the highlights of the show... just a great live song! I went to concerts 6 days in a row (Killswitch Engage, 311, Megadeth, DMB, Sevendust, and Weezer), and I can honestly say that this show (surprisingly for me) was the best of the bunch.
