|The venerable (i.e. old) Municipal Auditorium in Nashville must have been designed by someone who liked inclines, because the whole structure was designed around these huge sloping pedestrian ramps that made it a skateboarders paradise. Perhaps all Municipal Auditoriums across the country are subject to a "Muni Challenge", like the one in Kansas City? It sure looked good... Unfortunately, a wicked illness was going around as of sometime last night, and both Rivers and Pat (not to mention our tour manager) were battling high fevers all day. Pat even registered a 103 teperature about 1 hour before weezers set was to begin! So instead of following his instinct to careen around on the scooter, Pat took Rivers's lead and had lots of naps and drank plenty of fluids all day. The show was sold out to the rafters with a very cheerful crowd tonight, and thats the kind of show that Must Go On! With Rivers and Pat struggling to keep their energy up, the overall band presence was a bit less aggressive than in recent shows, but they managed to sufficiently rock it out! One fan whos seen 2 other Hyper Extended Midget shows said that this one was actually the most rocking of the 3, so they must have been doing something right...
