weezlogo.jpgAndy and I along with my wife and son checked out the Foo Fighters/Weezer show tonight at the Frank Erwin Center. It was good for the rock. They allow cameras into the shows, so check out the ones that actually came out on my flickr page. We were a little late, so we only caught two or three songs of the opening band, Mae. Each headliner played about an hour and a half. Weezer rotated singers a few times with the drummer singing “Photograph” from the Green Album, while Rivers played drums. Rivers also appeared at the back of the floor halfway through the set for a solo version of “Island In The Sun”. They played a good mix of songs from all of the albums. I was glad they included “Why Bother?” from Pinkerton. They pulled somebody from the crowd to help with “Undone” and finished with “Surfwax America” and “Hash Pipe”. Let’s see what else? “Beverly Hills”, “Peace”, “Such a Pity” and “Perfect Situation” from Make Believe. They opened with “My Name is Jonas”. They showered the audience with confetti near the end of the show.

Foo Fighters followed after I took The Boy up to the mezzanine to get a Weezer shirt. The Foo opened with “In Your Honor”. They played “This is a Call”. We got a solo performance of “Everlong” from Dave Grohl. They covered “Born on a Bayou” as they did at the recent Katrina benefit concert. As with Weezer, we got a song where the frontman and the drummer switched places for “Cold Day in the Sun” from In Your Honor. We also got “All My Life”, “Breakout”, “The Last Song”, “Learn To Fly” and “Stacked Actors” where Grohl enters the audience for a little meet and greet. They ended with “Monkeywrench”.

Update: Andy’s photos from last night are here.
