The Weezer frontman opened with R.E.M.’s ‘Losing My Religion‘ immediately followed by, the Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘Today.’

Later in the set, he played the Oasis classic ‘Champagne Supernova,’ and he ended things with Pixies’ ever popular ‘Where Is My Mind?’ The main stay of the performance was tunes from throughout Weezer’s entire 25 year discography.
