2009/08/29 Bleezer Tour: Hartford, CT: Comcast Theatre
SPECIAL NOTE: We have just learned that Weezer's set time tonight has been changed from 8PM to 7:30 PM.
+++ RIP DJ AM - Condolences to Travis Barker, the Blink clan and AM's family. +++
Today was the first bona-fide rainy day of the tour, so the peeps up in the lawn area had to put up with dampness, moistness and straight up wetness too. Fortunately the rain kinda spritzed and spattered more than a big downpour. It looked really full so apparently the hardy Hartfordians werent scared by a little water.
Today's pit denizens were the recipient of hundreds of guitar fragments, which they created in a spontaneous group activity session out of a guitar that travelled through the air after it left the hands of Rivers. The fragments are to be reassembled later into a perfectly working guitar at a special pit attendee town hall meeting. Please send in the photo of the reassembled guitar asap to claim your prize! Thanks guys!

...Check out Jillian's Blog - Scott Shiner's wife Jillian is blogging about her experiences on this tour as a new mother and rock tour wife. Good stuff!
...Twitter Search: Weezer - the power of the fans with the cams!
...Reminder: Weezer's new single, the first from their upcoming 7th album "Raditude" is called "(If you're wondering if i want you to) I want you to". And the super simple radio request phrase once again is: "(If you're wondering if i want you to play "(If you're wondering if i want you to) I want you to", yes, I want you to play "(If you're wondering if i want you to) I want you to". What could be easier? ***Debuted at #21 on 8/27! #1 most played on KROQ Los Angeles! Thanks to you!***
