Weezer and Pixies will co-headline a 29-date tour in the summer of 2018. The two rock groups kick things off in Tampa on June 23rd, play numerous dates on the East Coast and around the mid-Atlantic in July, and finish up on August 12th in Phoenix. 

Weezer's Pixies' fandom was immediately obvious on their 1994 debut album, Weezer. According to Pixies' lead singer Black Francis, the admiration is mutual. "We're all big Weezer fans, so we're really looking forward to this summer," he said in a statement. "We have a lot of respect for Weezer; they're not afraid to take risks with their music."

Both bands have relatively new music to promote. Weezer just released Pacific Daydream, and new single "Happy Hour" was one of the most added songs at alternative radio stations last week. The Pixies released Head Carrier, their first LP with Paz Lenchantin on bass, in September of 2016.

Tickets will be available on Friday, November 10th at 10 a.m. local time.
