Weezer and Pixies are all set to co-headline a 29-date tour in the summer of 2018. The two influential alt-rock rock outfits kick things off in Tampa, Florida, on June 23rd, play numerous dates on the East Coast and around the mid-Atlantic in July, and finish up on 12 August in Phoenix, Arizona.

Weezer’s Pixies’ fandom was immediately obvious on their 1994 debut album, Weezer. According to Pixies’ lead singer Black Francis, the admiration is mutual. “We’re all big Weezer fans, so we’re really looking forward to this summer,” he said in a statement. “We have a lot of respect for Weezer; they’re not afraid to take risks with their music.”

Both bands have relatively new music to promote. Weezer just released Pacific Daydream, and new single ‘Happy Hour’ was one of the most added songs at alternative radio stations last week. The Pixies released Head Carrier, their first LP with Paz Lenchantin on bass, in September of 2016.

Tickets for the two bands’ co-headlining tour will be available on Friday, 10 November at 10 a.m. local time.
