What started out with a barbershop quartet of “Buddy Holly” turned into a night full of hits from over the years along with new covers and songs from 2019’s Teal and Black albums. This was not the typical concert experience for many alternative fans in St. Louis.
Everyone in the Enterprise Center saw Rivers ride a pirate ship to the opposite side of the arena. Pyro and fireworks rained out during “Say It Ain’t So”. The sing-along to the covers stood out and got everyone singing high notes for “Take On Me”. Weezer made sure everyone saw something unique as well as made sure the fans in St. Louis had a good time.
This is what concerts and tours need more of. Fun, unique ideas that get band members off the stage and around the arena. It doesn’t have to be as extravagant as a mobile pirate ship, but ideas like these should be used more often because every single person in that arena loved it. It’s hard not to smile while you see Pirate Rivers sail away around the area where the St. Louis Blues play.
