The upcoming Weezer/Flaming Lips shows at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel NJ (7/28) and Jones Beach in NYC (7/29) are going to be unique and historic for both bands, as something both bands have never tried before is going down.
The bands are setting up all their gear at once, and then blending and shaping their setlists into one massive gargantuan supersetlist. The bands will trade off setlist segments, switch off songs, share the stage and get loose and crazy… Continue

Happy Birthday to Scott Shriner! Today were flying from Scotland to Tokyo so Scott will spend his birthday on a 13 hour flight. No birthday candles allowed on a plane! But maybe he'll get a nice sleepy time as we fly - after these past 3 fun but exhausting days, he deserves it!
Today we play T In The Park, near Edinburgh, Scotland, the 3rd in a 3 straight trifecta of giant festival madness! Last night we had a long bus ride up from Sonisphere Festival grounds. More movies were watched, work was done, food was consumed, and finally, one by one, we succumbed to the quiet, dark bus cocoons of sleep, collapsing into recharge mode.
But now we are on site and its sunny and beautiful. With occasional hot and cold flashes and bits of…
After an overnight drive from Ireland, including a 3.5 hour ferry ride and encore screenings of "Borat" and "Pulp Fiction" right off the bus's hard drive, we made our way to Knebworth in England, there the annual Sonisphere Festival is held on its stately grounds. "The pen is mightier than the sword" said Knebworth's Edward Bulwer Lytton, who probably would have had a hard time concentrating on his…
...After an eventful planes trains and automobiles type day where team weezer was divided into various units who all tried to get to Ireland in different ways and different times (with highly varying degrees of success), everyone has finally reconvened in Dublin, a city that's hard not to love. Naps were had, delicious food was eaten, work was done, and streets were wandered. From there today we took a ride out to the country, to Punchestown… Continue
Today marks weezer's first 'club' show in England in several years, and the only club show of this block of gigs in the UK and Ireland. Everyone is excited to be back in London and is really looking forward to playing the Brixton Academy once again. We are also stoked that the excellent English band Male Bonding is opening the show. Male Bonding and Rivers got together a while… Continue
Heres a recent photo at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles - Brian Bell came up on stage to join the band Rooney in a special rendition of John Lennon's song "Woman". Not long afterwards, Brian headed off to the airport and flew to Toronto to start the current weezer tour.
After the 6 hour flight from Montreal, we arrived at Heathrow and were happy to find it was sunny, not too warm, with a little breeze. Speaking of breeze, we breezed thru immigration, baggage claim, and customs, with hardly any lines or waiting aside from a random 10 minute pause in middle of the baggage claim process. Then we zoomed into central London in little vans and in 45 min we were at the hotel, only having had to fight a little spot of traffic in a city which is… Continue
...Todays show is at the home of the Montreal Canadiens NHL team, in the massive Brian Bell Centre For the Culinary Arts. Brian was honored that they named the Centre after him, and is happy to be rocking out in his second home. Tonight Jack's Mannequin is the opening act, and they are rocking it out as these words are being written in fact...

Theres a lot of Canada that they wisely designated as "the hinterlands" many years ago - or perhaps there simply arent enough Canadians to fill up all the land they have! Either way, we are deep in the Canadian hinterlands today, marveling at the natural beauty and small town good vibes. The good vibe small town in question is Saint-Georges, which is a few miles from the Woodstock-en-Beauce festival site. The whole area is about 60 miles south of Quebec City, and only about 30… Continue
After several weeks in the woodshed, Team Weezer has assembled north of the border in Toronto to help Canada celebrate Canada Day. Its a sold out show, and the 25,000 attendees have been streaming in since they opened the gates mid afternoon. Actually, these might be the only 25,000 people left in Toronto, as it looked like just about everybody else was driving south on the QEW. But these 25,000 people are here to rock, and Weezer is here to rock them, along with Buck65, Hey… Continue

Well, the new Pixar film "Cars 2" is out Friday June 24th, and as you may know by now, it features Weezer's new cover of the Cars' song "You Might Think". (official video above!) Because the Cars' leader Ric Ocasek produced both weezer's Blue and Green records and the band are huge fans of the Cars, covering the song felt like a perfect plan. More here on…Continue
