...MB '05 Tour: Day 99: Los Angeles, CA - Jimmy Kimmel Show
Hollywood back alley mini concert! Today we (luckily) woke up and assembled from various points in L.A. behind the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, where the Jimmy Kimmel Show does its 'Pontiac Garage' outdoor shows. The show tapes inside, but a seperate audience assembles in the rear parking lot where they set up a fancy stage. Todays show featured a kid with his 2 goats, Clay Aiken, one of the Ocean's 11 actors, and Weezer.
For the first time, weezer tried a new shenanigan, the wire harness. Scott and Rivers 'flew' around while playing and singing with wireless headsets. It... probably(?) won't happen again, but it was fun to try, sore bits notwithstanding. Weezer played 5 songs total, but only the first 2 were aired on TV. Unfortunately the shows airtime was pushed back pretty late due to Monday Night Football going overtime. But check it out, you can see the performances online - go here to see streaming video of the songs that weren't shown.
