Wait, so Weezer playing the Blue Album or Pinkerton in their entirety plus a handful of other hits isn’t enough to make a concert worth going to? Then these supporting acts should make the ticket worth the price. Rivers Cuomo announced on the Weezer forum page on Friday that Best Coast and Free Energy will be the opening bands for a few nights each on the forthcoming “Blinkerton/Memories” Tour. Best Coast, with whom Rivers is said to be working on a track for an upcoming release, will help out in L.A., while Free Energy will open up in both Boston and New York.
No word yet on who we can expect to see in San Francisco or Chicago. For those of you out in L.A., keep your ears open for any hint at that upcoming collaboration. Tickets are now on sale here.
