Who has seen Weezer live?

I saw Weezer play in Worcester, MA where they headlined along with Foo Fighters. It was the most intense concert that I've ever attended. One of the scariest moments of my life actually happened during Weezer's performance. Four friends and I were standing dead center and not quite front row, packed like sardines against each other. It was almost impossible to control your own movements because the strength of the crowd would push you back and forth. You really just had to go with the flow. I'm not sure what song they were performing but the crowd started to sway a bit more intensely, so much that you would actually be pushed back and forth a couple of feet. One especially strong push created a gap to out left and I completely lost my balance and tumbled to the floor. It happened so quickly I didn't have time to think. My most vivid memory of the moment was looking up and seeing the hole in the crowd become smaller and smaller and I was in danger of being trampled. Just then my good friend who was standing next to me reached down and yanked me off my butt and into the fresh light of Weezer. To this day I look back and feel like he saved my life. Probably being a little over dramatic but it makes that concert even more special.
