WEEZER AND PIXIES ANNOUNCE SUMMER 2018 CO-HEADLINE TOUR

Trek Will Also Include a Handful of Pixies Headline Dates

LOS ANGELES, CA  — Pixies and Weezer have announced a massive, co-headline seven-week  North American tour for summer 2018.  Presented by Live Nation, the tour has dates starting June 22 in West Palm Beach, Florida and will wrap in Phoenix, Arizona on August 12.  The Wombats will support as first of three from June 22 – July 15, with support for the tour’s second half from Sleighbells.  Though Weezer and Pixies have shared stages in the past, this marks their first full tour together.  
 
On these dates, Pixies will also be playing a handful of headline shows.  Tickets for those dates, as well as the dates with Weezer are on sale now; head to pixiesmusic.com for all ticket purchasing details.  
“We’re all big Weezer fans,” said Pixies’ Black Francis, “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 comes on the heels of the release of Weezer’s acclaimed eleventh studio album, Pacific Daydream, this past Friday.  With love from the likes of the New York TimesNPR Music, Q Magazine, and more, as well as a no. 1 Alternative single in the album’s song “Feels Like Summer,” Pacific Daydream is a brilliant addition to the band’s already much-loved discography.  The band celebrated the album’s release with a performance of their new single “Happy Hour” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this week.  Their tour with Pixies will see them playing a mix of new songs and classics from their revered 25-career catalogue, featuring countless chart-topping hits that have made them one of the world’s greatest bands.
 
Pixies’ live shows are unadulterated magic – simultaneously electrifying and lo-fi with focus on the music with almost no between-song banter.  On this tour, fans can expect 75-minutes of Pixies playing “anything they want,” one song right after the other, chosen from all points of their career, the classics and the new gems.  Artists like Bono, Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain and David Bowie knew what they were saying when they heaped praise on Pixies’ immense influence and rich contribution to music.  This is a band that gives its concert audiences sweet memories of the past while continuing to evolve with relevancy.
