I'm a decent Weezer fan, I don't really know how popular they are around the Coachella crowd but I know they are touring right now, but I'm not sure where they will be around April

I would like it if they played actually because the only way I'm going to see them is if they play at a festival. Coachella could be it.

I jsut got tickets to see them in Van in october, but I hate the new album so if they were to play Coachella I would just hope its like a greatest hits type thing, or just old stuff.

I love Weezer but I've seen them live and you're probably better off going to Gogol.

I saw them at Coachella 05'. What a disapointment. I kinda knew it would be a let down though. Rivers can work a club but not a large crowd. The band with it's original lineup was awesome and I think I saw them come to chicago like 5 times on the blue album tour. The couple of shows I have seen since way back then have really not been so great. I saw them open for the Foo Fighters later in the Make Believe tour....that band does not deserve now should they ever accept a gig in an arena. However, I remember seeing them when they were good and I knew from the presentatoin at this 1000 person club that Rivers wanted to be stadium rock in the worst way. Anyway, i'm one of the many who beleive post Pinkerton Weezer is not so great, some is good and some is meh. Sharp was the edge to that band. It's also why the rentals are pretty good. In fact, I would rather The Rentals play Coachella 2009 than Weezer.

If Weezer was at Coachella I would probably be in the Sahara or Beer Gardens. They're not my cup of tea.

As long as they dont headline or subheadline and conflict with another act that i want to see so that Weezer would attract people and make the act i want to watch less crowded.

no, i'm sure a second performance by weezer at coachella would kill me. 2005 almost bored me to death and i know another set would do me in for sure. seriously, i've never heard a band more bored with themselves. island in the sun sounded like god awful whining, yes, even more so than the original.

They are so done with...they were absolutely boring as hell in '05. I saw them about 11 years ago, and they were fun, but they are far removed from their prime, so I have to vote NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Weezer... I remember that band. Didn't they die in that terrible bus crash during their second album tour?


No. It would be an awful day to hear "we are all drugs" tainting the empire polo grounds AGAIN, with the probability that "everybody get dangerous" will be in the same set list.

I vote no on Proposition Weezer. Boring live and their last few albums are complete garbage.

I'd be pretty disappointed if they were headlining.

weezer is the most boring band live I have ever seen. and I saw them twice just to be sure. So bad I can barely listen to their songs anymore.

if Weezer headlined I would think twice about buying my Coachella tickets...and then I would since we would have Boards of Canada playing at the same time anyways....

QFT!

For me, Weezer moved to a foreign country after Pinkerton and were never heard from again. Reading new interviews with them (i.e., Rivers) just makes me depressed.

Here is one more vote for no Weezer at Coachella.

Edit: That was unnecessary I suppose.

if they're not subheadlining, they aren't playing since their popularity growing even more in recent years since their last appearance

Weezer broke up after Pinkerton.....and NEVER got back together.

weezer 05 sucked. what was rivers trying to pull? Now the thing is, the new album is as close to pinkerton as they have made yet. Rivers, if you could just play it like the rock star you are, you could KILL!

Back in the day, I would have KILLED to see a Blue/Pinkerton tour. Nowadays Rivers seems to have lost his talent. Almost seems washed up. I'm way bitter about them fucking up a potentially great band, and would not see them if someone paid me to. Shit's sad man.
