Weezer in Singapore

What a thrill to see Weezer in Singapore. Good old alternative rock. Ahh all these bands of my teenage years. Not too late to see them properly in my late thirties. :P Bought our tickets at first notice (pre sales) and fervently hoped that the tour schedule went as planned. It did!!!

Weezer's touring for their latest 'The White Album', which is pretty much is a throwback to their first and second albums back in the 90s. But it was beautiful to also hear songs from our youth. Heh. They opened the night at 8.15pm with 'California Kids'. Happy to have heard 'If You Are Wondering If I Want You To', 'Pork and Beans' and 'Beverly Hills'. The encore held 'El Scorcho' and this really really old one as the final song, 'Buddy Holly'.

They're a great band together. It was a super short set that wrapped in exactly 75 minutes. Wah. Scanned through their previous setlists and each one is similar and definitely would have ended in 80 minutes at the longest. Sound was quite terrible at Suntec City Convention Center. It was muted and underwhelming. Still. It was an enjoyable night.
