Weezer and Pixies announce 2018 co-headline summer tour
Weezer and the Pixies have announced a co-headlining North American tour for summer 2018. Pixies' influence on Weezer is undeniable, and ahead of this tour, Pixies' Frank Black said, "We're all big Weezer fans, so we're really looking forward to this summer. We have a lot of respect for Weezer, they're not afraid to take risks with their music."
The tour includes NYC-area shows on July 18 at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater and July 20 at PNC Bank Arts Center. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday, November 10 at 10 AM with various presales starting beforehand.
The first leg of the tour is being opened by The Wombats. Opener TBA for the second leg of the tour, which includes the NYC-area shows. All dates are listed below.
Weezer just released their new album Pacific Daydream last week, which is a return to their polished poppy stuff after their two "back to our roots" albums, 2014's Everything Will Be Alright in the End and 2016's White Album. They're already talking about releasing Black Album in 2018. Pixies' latest album is last year's Head Carrier, their first album with Kim Deal's replacement Paz Lenchantin.
