Weezer brought load of people (and traffic woes) to the Del Mar Summer Concert Series in 2010 and this year, the band kept it's streak alive. With an estimated 40,000 people attending, Rivers Cuomo and band dazzled at the new Seaside Stage, while a nearby Beer Fest kept fans lubricated with hops.

Weezer worked their magic with all the radio hits, such as "Pork & Beans" and the 2005 seldom-played but aptly named "We Are All on Drugs," which prompted Cuomo to hoist a fans crutch up on stage and wave it around.

A cover of Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks" and a fairly good knock-off of Radiohead's "Paranoid Android" brought some variety to Weezer's set. The crowd was good-natured but somewhat unruly, and Sheriff's deputies had to roam the front end. Finally "Beverly Hills" and "Buddy Holly" closed the fun times out.
