2011/10/09 Chicago: Congress Theater: RIOTfest

Today is a hard day for weezer and all weezer friends, fans, and family. While everyone is still in shock over  yesterday's tragic loss of Mikey Welsh, we know damn well he would never have wanted to stop the rock at today's RIOTfest, the show he was planning on attending. On the contrary, the rock was what he loved, both in music and art. To play the show and play it well tonight is to honor him and his memory. We have a feeling he will be watching.

Dear friends and fans,

It saddens me and the guys in Weezer so much to say that our beautiful, creative, hilarious and sweet friend Mikey Welsh has passed away at the very young age of 40. A unique talent, a deeply loving friend and father, and a great artist is gone, but we will never forget him. His chapter in the weezer story ('98 - '01) was vital,…

2011/10/08 Thackerville, OK: WinStar World Casino: Global Event Center

After a relatively show-free stretch over the past few weeks, the weezer rock machine has kicked back into gear, reassembling at the WinStar World Casino, about 90 miles north of Dallas, in Thackerville, Oklahoma. Tonight's show is sold out, so its bound to be a good time. People have gathered from all over the place to get to this show, which makes sense because Thackerville itself is quite small, so there cant be more than like 20 weezer fans there. Maybe 23. 24…
