In terms of iconic alt/rock tours, this one’s pretty untouchable.
Weezer and Pixies will team up for a co-headlining trek for seven weeks in summer 2018, it was announced on Thursday. The news comes just as Weezer’s eleventh record, the glossy and mostly rewarding Pacific Daydream, was released on Oct. 27.
The tour will run from June 23 and run up through Aug. 23 in cities across the United States, with the Wombats on as support (and more opening acts to be announced shortly).
It seems reasonable to expect Rivers Cuomo and Weezer to play several songs from throughout their career each night, from hits and classics to fan favorites and new material, while Pixies promise to play “anything they want” over the course of their 75-minute set.
