TVD Live Shots: Weezer and the Pixies at Xfinity Center, 7/17

MANSFIELD, MA | Rivers Cuomo was literally ready to “bless the rains,” (their new single’s homage to Toto’s hit) down at Xfinity Center on Tuesday night. But even torrential rains didn’t stop long time Weezer fans from showing up to rock with their favorite band. Devotees wearing shirts that read “Weezer ‘til I Die,” kind of said it all.

In a recent press release, the band shared that there is nothing like a summer trek across the country and welcomed the Pixies and Sleigh Bells on their current tour across the U.S. “…we’ve been on plenty of [tours] dating all the way back to 1994, when we opened for the legendary UK band Lush, driving around in an old conversion van named Betsy. So much has changed since those days but the main thing that’s changed about a Weezer concert is that they’ve sounded better and better, and have been more and more full of fans. This coming summer will be no exception.”

A large curtain dropped to reveal the band on what looked like the set of Arnold’s on Happy Days, paying tribute to the video of the beloved Weezer hit, “Buddy Holly.” Cuomo also played homage by sweating it out in his own Buddy Holly sweater and signature frames.

The show opened with “Buddy Holly,” “Beverly Hills,” and featured new songs from their most recent album, Pacific Daydream, which the band explains welcomes new sounds and vibes that “they’ve rarely flirted with before, while retaining their all-important grip on the cool melodies, unforgettable songs and the collision of happiness and sadness that is essential to Weezer.”
