Pixies and Weezer Announce Co-Headlining 2018 North American Tour
It's not even Thanksgiving and one of the biggest tours for next summer has already been announced. Pixies and Weezer will play seven weeks' worth of shows across North America in 2018. You can see all the dates below.
"We're all big Weezer fans," Black Francis in a press release, "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."
They'll start on June 23 at the Midflorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa,. Fla., and wrap it up at the Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix. Supporting them on the first batch of dates (through July 15 in Syracuse) will be the Wombats. The opening act for the second half of the tour will be announced at a later date.
Tickets will go on sale beginning Nov. 10 at 10AM local time. You can visit either the Pixies' or Weezer's websites for full information.
Pixies have been on the road supporting Head Carrier since its 2016 release. Weezer just released their 11th studio record, Pacific Daydream, last week. And it's possible they could have their 12th out by the time this new tour begins. Earlier this week, frontman Rivers Cuomo said Weezer are hoping The Black Album will be ready by May 2018.
