Weezer’s Brian Bell ‘Praying’ for a ‘Pinkterton’ Tour

The cult album will be reissued on October 5

The coming months are exciting ones for Weezer fans: The band is releasing their new album Hurley on September 14th, then quickly following it up with an October 5th reissue of Pinkerton, from 1996. A rarities compilation, Death to False Metal, is also in the works. But for the cult that has developed around the Pinkerton, Weezer’s emotionally charged second album, there’s even better news: According to guitarist Brian Bell, Weezer may perform the album in its entirety in a special tour. This is especially notable because Weezer has banished the album’s material from their set lists in recent years.

“I’m praying for a Pinkerton tour, where we’ll play all the songs off Pinkerton, soon,” Bell told the 1st Five at the Mile High Festival. A commercial and critical failure upon its release, Pinkerton was essentially disowned by Rivers Cuomo for nearly a decade. The reissue, however, strongly suggests that Cuomo has finally learned to embrace the album.
