Crazy Horse @ MGM Grand



If you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all.

The Crazy Horse stole only 1.5 hours from my life and the ticket was free. Otherwise......

PS Could be the worst show we've seen in Vegas (and I've seen Barry Manilow & Cher)

Weezer @ The New Joint


2nd Weezer show with us and the Hills. I can't believe it has been 5 and half years since we first saw them (back in the Old Joint). That was a great night.

2 albums from start to finish. One I love and one I am not too familiar with.

The night started with the Blue Album, and it was one great song after the next. This is my favorite Weezer album and it was kind of weird being at a show and knowing what the next song was going to be. Regardless it was all good. Buddy Holly, Surf Wax America and Say It Ain't So we great. It was funny that the guitarist started a song out of order - priceless were the looks the rest of the band gave him.

After a 20 minute break, where we entertained by a roadie's stories of the past (including photographic evidence), the band cam back onstage to do Pinkerton. Not as entertaining as the first set, but who doesn't love El Scorcho and Good Life. They then finished off the night with an unknown to me one song encore.

Personally I think they would have been better off starting with this album and finishing with the Blue Album.

Not quite as fun as the last show we saw, but good enough for me to want to go again when they return to Vegas in August to play at the Red Rock pool.

Blue Album: My Name Is Jonas / No One Else / The World Has Turned And Left Me Here / Buddy Holly / Undone - The Sweater Song / Surf Wax America / Say It Ain't So / In The Garage / Holiday / Only In Dreams
