The last time weezer was at red rocks, they were opening for No Doubt in a monsoon thunderstorm that cut the set short and nearly killed them.

The equipment was damaged, everyone was soaked and freezing and the legend of what is often called the perfect natural outdoor venue was, to say the least, tarnished in Weezer's eyes.

Just about 5 years later the scene started much the same: a hot clear day in July, a breathtakingly beautiful location, a long line of concert goers snaking down the mountain side waiting to get in, and a bit of shortness of breath from the high altitude. Some nervous jokes were going around that the forcast called for rain that night, apparently a running gag at Red Rocks that those with mememories of '97 didn't find very funny.

But as the afternoon crept on, the 6500+ people poured in, and finally as Sparta hit the stage, a collective sigh of relief was had, as the stars came out proving that no nasty storm cells were on the way. Now this was what a concert at Red Rocks is all about!
