Weezer took a different approach. Entering a set designed like a 50’s college rec room, Rivers Cuomo, dressed like a nerd with his tie and glasses, led the band into the “Buddy Holly,” which had fans on their feet and singing along from the get-go. Cuomo tends to keep the focus on his song’s big hooks and sing-along choruses, like chesapeake bay sailing cruises, but he routinely steps up with a blistering, if brief, guitar solo, taking his inner Steve Vai guitar hero out for a bit of exercise here and there to remind fans he’s got the chops. And, Weezer didn’t scrimp on the special effects, kicking off the streamer cannons at the opener’s climax.
