Slideshow: Highlights from KROQ's annual Weenie Roasts
With KROQ 106.7 FM's sold-out 20th Annual Weenie Roast y Fiesta just a week away featuring headliners Coldplay, Incubus, the Offspring, Silversun Pickups and Garbage at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine on May 5, we decided to take a look back at past Weenie fests.
The multi-artist rock concert has been presented annually since 1993 at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, formerly known as Irvine Meadows, with the exception of 2000, when it was held at Angel Stadium in Anaheim and featured No Doubt, Korn, Ozzy Osbourne, the Offspring, Creed, Moby, Stone Temple Pilots, Third Eye Blind, Lit and more.
The inaugural event took place on June 12, 1993 and featured Terence Trent D'Arby, Dramarama, Gin Blossoms, the Lemonheads, the Posies, Rocket from the Crypt, X and Stone Temple Pilots.
Of all the artists to have played Weenie Roast, Stone Temple Pilots, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Tim Armstrong, whether solo, with Rancid or the Transplants, have performed most frequently through the years.
Take a spin through our slideshow to see many of the acts that have performed – some memorable, others may have you asking, "What happened to that dude/band/white rapper?"
