“It is our distinct pleasure to welcome the Pixies to the stage for this tour,” according to a news post on Weezer’s official site. “Weezer’s origin was in fact very closely linked to the Pixies – no other band had the impact they did on the band’s early sound. We’ve played with them on a handful of occasions since they reformed in the early 2000’s and it’s always been an honor. Sharing a stage with them for a whole summer is going to be mindblowing. We can’t wait to see them, and you!”

Rolling Stone reported Weezer released its latest studio album, “Pacific Daydream,” Oct. 27. The Pixies released their latest, “Head Carrier,” in September 2016.
