ST. PAUL, Minn., Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Those attending a concert in St. Paul, Minn., by the rock bank Weezer would say front man Rivers Cuomo has finally overcome his shyness.
The Minnesota Star Tribune reported Saturday that after years of Weezer performances in which Cuomo displayed a restrained on-stage presence, the 38-year-old singer rocked out during a Friday performance at the Xcel Energy Center.
The newspaper said the performance by Cuomo and his fellow Weezer rockers was filled with energy and motion, including a knee-slide from the typically reserved front man.
The new-found approach by the rockers comes as Cuomo is settling into his new life role as a married father with a degree from Harvard University.
The Star Tribune said while Cuomo's life changes have limited the musical efforts by the "Undone (The Sweater Song)" rockers, they still managed to put on a great St. Paul show and just released their sixth group album, titled "the Red Album" by fans.
