Los Angeles, CA (December 15, 2017) – Pixies and Weezer have added a performance at the “Fabulous” Forum in Inglewood, California on August 8, 2018 to their massive, co-headlining seven-week North American summer tour. Presented by Live Nation, the tour starts June 22 in West Palm Beach, Florida, and will wrap in Phoenix, Arizona on August 12. Though Weezer and Pixies have shared stages in the past, this marks their first full tour together. Tickets go on sale to the public starting on Monday, December 18 at 10 AM; for more information visit weezer.com and pixiesmusic.com.

“We’re all big Weezer fans,” said Pixies’ Black Francis, “so we’re really looking forward to this summer.  We have a lot of respect for Weezer, they’re not afraid to take risks with their music.”

The tour comes on the heels of the release of Weezer’s acclaimed eleventh studio album, Pacific Daydream.  With love from the likes of the New York Times, NPR Music, Q Magazine, and more, as well as a no. 1 Alternative single in the album’s song “Feels Like Summer,” Pacific Daydream is a brilliant addition to the band’s already much-loved discography.  The band celebrated the album’s release with a performance of their new single “Happy Hour” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Their tour with Pixies will see them playing a mix of new songs and classics from their revered 25-year catalogue, featuring countless chart-topping hits that have made them one of the world’s greatest bands.

Pixies’ live shows are unadulterated magic – simultaneously electrifying and lo-fi with focus on the music with almost no between-song banter.  On this tour, fans can expect 75-minutes of Pixies playing “anything they want,” one song right after the other, chosen from all points of their career, the classics and the new gems.  Artists like Bono, Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain and David Bowie knew what they were saying when they heaped praise on Pixies’ immense influence and rich contribution to music.  This is a band that gives its concert audiences sweet memories of the past while continuing to evolve with relevancy.
