The sound was pretty amazing, really loud and getting the crowd going. What made it special was that every band member sang a song.

Sound: The sound was pretty amazing, really loud and getting the crowd going. Especially liked the way Rivers sang on the set opener, 'Don't Let Go'. Rivers' voice was on top form. This hasn't really got anything to do with the sound but the Weezer amp with the flying W was cool. // 10

Perfomance: Totally amazing, I swear that everyone was singing and jumping along throughout the whole show. Great setlist - all my favourites, but then again I love every Weez song. They played some songs they don't play that often such as El Scorcho and Perfect Situation. What made it special was that every band member sang a song. Rivers even played the drums on Photograph, while Pat took over at the mic. The acoustic rendition of Island In The Sun is something I won't be forgetting for a long time. Rivers even crowd surfed for the first time ever (well according to Karl on the official). Best gig I've been to, hopefully I'll see them again sometime. // 10

Overall Impression: UK, Manchester, Manchester Academy - 25/08/05. Openers: Nine Black Alps. I loved Weezer and how Rivers got involved with the crowd. I hated the fact they didn't pick me to go play Undone while Rivers was crowd surfing. Ticket cost 25, worth the money! Rivers crowd surfing, Rivers' solo Island in the sun on top of the bar, and just seeing Weezer live was pretty unforgettable. Will defo go to their next gig, hopefully the rumours aren't true and they will tour the UK again. Looking forward to it. // 10
