Here is the set list for the show –

Over the years, Weezer has performed several times in our area. In March 1999, they performed again at Tink’s with the opening act Eve 6. In February 2002, they would return again this time playing the First Union Arena at Casey Plaza (now the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza) in Wilkes-Barre Twp. Their opener that time were Saves the Day and Ozma. And just last year, Weezer headlined FuzzFest 2016 at Pavilion at Montage Montage Mountain. Performing with them were Panic! at the Disco and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness.
