Fan reaction

Eddie Muñoz wrote briefly about the concert and seeing Rivers Cuomo on his personal website www.59productions.com in 2002:[2]


Chuck and I went to this show, and it was cool. I went in not knowing who was opening, but was pleasantly surprised. After the show we were out back, hoping to maybe get an autograph, when the lead singer of Weezer walked by mumbling about his sweater. We asked for his autograph and he walked on mumbling "Yeah, yeah, good to see you, where's my sweater?"


- Chris Macneil, 59 Productions, 2002

An article by Gavin Edwards in Details further describes the aftermath:[3]


After a concert in Lawrence, Kansas, Rivers’s bandmates and road crew peer through the tour bus’s windows and watch him disappear into a Holiday Inn with a girl. It seems that the self-cleansing didn’t succeed.

“Rivers just got here.”

“Does he have some hot little number?”

“She’s not really hot. She’s not even Asian.”

“Man, he’s slipping.”
- Gavin Edwards, Details, February 1997
