MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Ween brought their wacky brand of alternative rock to the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater on Saturday, Oct. 13th.  

The band's brand of music is definitely an acquired taste.  There are no really casual Ween fans; you're either on the bus or you're not.. and everyone likes to keep it that way.   And those hardcore fans were out in full force, glad to see their heroes back together after Gene's personal issues caused the band to break up.

Ween had no opener-they walked out onstage ready to rock!   They proceeded to give fans both barrels-a lengthy, 33 song, 2-set show that basically encompassed the band's entire ferociously original catalog!  A lot of fun and a lot of rocking at the Fillmore again on a beautiful Saturday night.
