Weezer @ Petco Park 6/13/2012
The annual Cisco Live networkers conference was held June 10-14 in San Diego, CA at the San Diego Convention Center. As part of this event Cisco holds a “Customer Appreciation Event” that typically is a huge gala that includes live music, food, drink, carnival rides and much more as a thank you to Cisco customers. Past musical performers at the Cisco event have been KISS, Blue Man Group, Tears for Fears, Bare Naked Ladies, Smashmouth just to name a few. This year Cisco asked the customers to vote for the band they most wanted to see at the event and Southern California’s own Weezer was the unanimous winner.
The Customer Appreciation Event was held Wednesday night June 13 inside Petco Park (home of Major League Baseball’s San Diego Padres). A large stage was setup on the outfield side of second base and the entire outfield was open to the event community. The all-female Led Zeppelin tribute band Zepparella started the night with a killer set of Zeppelin classics. This was a great way to warm up the crowd of thousands for the much anticipated headlining act. Weezer hit the stage shortly after 9:00pm and played a 60 minute set packed with all their hits and fan favorites. Cisco yet again pulled off another gala night of fantastic entertainment – I am certain all Cisco attendees appreciated this night!
