Ween Las Vegas Finale Includes Nearly Disastrous Wedding Proposal

Sunday night saw Ween close out a three-night stand at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas with a show heavy on rockers including a Motorhead cover. The evening also featured a wedding proposal that ended well after the guy proposing lost the ring for a little while.

Ween opened their Vegas finale with “She Wanted To Leave” before the powerful one-two punch of “Buckingham Green” and “Spinal Meningitis (Got Me Down).” One of the biggest surprises of the run came soon thereafter as the five-piece busted out “Albino Sunburned Girl” for the first time since 2010 ahead of a typically extended “Voodoo Lady.” The band continued to pull beloved material from throughout the course of their career such as “Stroker Ace,” “Put The Coke On My Dick,” “Laura” and “My Own Bare Hands.”

After “My Own Bare Hands,” guitarist Mickey “Dean Ween” Melchiondo brought up Ween fan Kenton and his girlfriend Courtney. Kenton was aiming to propose to Courtney but lost the ring on the way up to the stage. Thankfully, Ween’s hard working crew found the ring just in time for Kenton to pop the question and Courtney said yes! The show then rolled on with the set-closing sequence of “Hey There Fancypants,” “Touch My Tooter,” “It’s Gonna Be A Long Night,” “Ace Of Spades,” “Fluffy” and “Polka Dot Tail.” For the encore, Ween embarked on the fourth “Poopship Destroyer” since they reunited a little over one year ago.
