Weezer have announced the first two stops of what they're calling the "Memories" tour, on which, as promised, they'll perform the entirety of the The Blue Album on one night and Pinkerton the next. Both nights will be rounded out by a "greatest hits set." The tour kicks off November 26th and 27th at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles, then moves up the coast to San Francisco's Nob Hill Masonic Center on November 29th and 30th. (Check out the Weezer site for the ticket info.) In the meantime, the band will play the Mirage Casino on October 1st, for Rolling Stone's celebration of the Hot List issue.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
