»Nippon Budokan, Tokyo

En la última actualización de Weezer.com 27.05 Karl habla sobre el concierto en el Budokan Hall , haciendo referencia a que Los Beatles tocaron allí hace ya más de 30 años y comentando que a diferencia de otros conciertos del tour por Japon no hubo ninguna sorpresa en la lista de canciones (recordemos que en el concierto de Osaka tocaron "Across the sea" por primera vez en 4 años).

Eso es lo que dice Chuck Campbell de ModernRock.com a diferencia de Weezer (The Green album) pero afirma que llevará a Weezer a la "realeza" del rock (?).

Weezer to Bring Geek Rock to the Masses on Summer Tour

MAY 28 4:25 P.M. ET Alt-rockers Weezer have confirmed U.S. tour dates for the summer, set to begin July 5. The band's new album, "Maladroit," was released May 14 and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard chart.

Select cities on this six-week tour will see the band matched with New York rock sensations the Strokes, and in the supporting slots on all dates will be Dashboard Confessional and Sparta (featuring members of At the Drive-In). Weezer has recently returned from a tour of Japan, and will follow up its American summer dates with U.K. festival gigs in late August.

With the help of some memorably quirky videos, Weezer first rose to prominence in the early '90s, attracting attention for pairing indie-rock geekiness with pop-rock chops. Although tour dates are certain to sell out, the band's most recent single, "Dope Nose," has yet to crack major mainstream airplay.

[Note: The following tour itinerary has been provided by artist and/or tour sources, who verify its accuracy as of 28-May-2002. Changes may occur before tickets go on sale. Check with official artist web sites, ticketing sources and venues for late updates.]

»Pat le dice a Mtv News que se siente como Tool

Fuente : Mtv.comWhen drummer Pat Wilson described Weezer's latest live show tendencies recently, he separately mentioned Neil Diamond, Spinal Tap, Tool and Phish in a matter of minutes.

Needless to say, the band's summer tour should be interesting.

Dates have not been announced, but Wilson and frontman Rivers Cuomo said Weezer will spend six weeks hitting amphitheaters across America with Dashboard Confessional beginning in mid-July. The Stokes will also join the bill on a couple of dates.

"It's gonna be awesome," Wilson said. "The sound just goes. In an arena, it sounds stupid, but when we hear stuff and it goes out and then it comes back, it has a certain feeling to it, but in these places, it just feels like the sound you make goes forever. So we'll probably be more like, I don't know, Phish."

Cuomo seconded the notion, going as far as calling Weezer a power-pop Phish. Considering the band's loyal fanbase, which has been following the group on the road and trading set lists and bootlegs, and the way Weezer have been jamming lately, he's got a strong case.

Wilson explained how at a recent show in Tucson, Arizona, the band played four new songs in a row and approached their classics in free-form fashion. "I felt like I was in Tool," he said. "It was so cool. I hope to hear [a tape of the show] sometime and agree with my previous statement."

Weezer's summer tour will promote Maladroit, which debuts at #3 on this week's Billboard 200 albums chart. Many are calling it the band's most rocking record, which Wilson attributed to the past year the band has spent on the road.

"We've been playing [the new material] live so much that after awhile I think it just makes you wanna rock harder, 'cause you just kind of get a tolerance to that level and you just wanna keep going," he said.
