WEEZER TO TOUR AUSTRALIA FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SIXTEEN YEARS

PLAYING THEIR GREATEST HITS AND ‘THE BLUE ALBUM’ FROM START TO FINISH

It has been sixteen long years since Weezer’s one and only tour of Australia. After incessant rumours of potential tours, the resultant fervour that has taken over the nation’s music fans remains unrivalled. Chugg Entertainment is excited to be bringing the band to our shores, with the opportunity to vindicate the enthusiasm and persistence of their fans all over the country.  Greater still, their tour brings with it a follow thru from their recently announced US concept shows; performing a collection of greatest hits and rarities in addition to The Blue Album, from start to finish.

This visit will be both a celebration for older fans, reveling in nostalgia from Weezer’s storied Pinkerton tour of 1996, and an introduction to a younger generation working their way back from more recent albums. Such is the anticipation of this announcement that these shows are more than just a tour; they represent a culmination of years of collective longing.

Weezer will play four Australian shows in January, starting at

Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Sunday 13 January,

Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne on Wednesday 16 January,

The Palais Theatre in Melbourne on Thursday 17 January playing Pinkerton 

Sydney Entertainment Centre on Saturday 19 January, and

Perth Arena on Wednesday 23 January.

Weezer’s long anticipated return will finally bring this special experience to Australia.

TICKETS FOR ALL SHOWS ON SALE 9AM, THURSDAY 26 JULY
