After being announced as a last-minute replacement for Blink-182, who were forced to pull their headline set due to drummer Travis Barker’s illness, Weezer performed a cover of one of the trio’s best-known tracks at the Chicago event.
Riot Fest took place at the city’s Douglas Park over the weekend (14th - 16th September), with sets from acts including Beck, Interpol, The Voidz, Bully, Bleachers and Blondie.
Weezer took on ‘All The Small Things’ during their set, the second time in a week for frontman Rivers Cuomo, who also played it during an acoustic solo set in San Francisco, saying “Weezer always has Blink’s back.”

A great - albeit mis-matched - collection of songs.
