Use Eventful as your source for Weezer tour dates and venue information.

Weezer's first concert performance was on the opening stage for Matrix star Keanu Reeves and his band Dogstar in 1992. They were signed to Geffen Records in 1993 and headed to the studio with The Cars frontman, Ric Ocasek, to produce their self-titled debut album dubbed the "Blue Album". The lead-off single "Undone-The Sweater Song" was an immediate top ten hit on modern rock radio. It was with their second single "Buddy Holly" and its iconic video that the band reached cult status. The single won Weezer the Breakthrough Video Award and Best Alternative Music Video at the MTV Video Music Awards. The album featured one more hit single, "Say It Ain't So", and was certified triple-Platinum and remains their highest selling album to-date.

In the aftermath of the success, Weezer tour dates were scheduled internationally to play to their burgeoning audience. The band returned to the studio in 1994 and released their sophomore album Pinkerton in 1996. While the single "El Scorcho" was a hit on radio, the album was not properly promoted due to a legal issue and subsequently suffered through slow initial sales. Weezer tour dates were scheduled to promote the album before a hiatus beginning in 1997. During this time, Rivers attended Harvard and focused his efforts towards his song-writing. The band reunited in 2000 for a spot on the Fuji Festival in Japan which reinvigorated their appetite for recording. Weezer tour dates were scheduled on the 2000 Warped Tour and they recorded their album Weezer.

The self-titled third album, popularly known as The Green Album, was released in 2000 and brought Weezer back to mainstream acclaim. The initial singles "Hash Pipe" and "Island in the Sun" were MTV video hits and radio smashes. They quickly returned with Maladroit in 2002 which featured a heavier more serious sound. Weezer concert dates were booked on the Maladroit Enlightenment Tour and they recorded in-between shows. They headed back into the recording studio with famed producer Rick Rubin to craft Make Believe. the album was released in 2005 and featured their biggest hit to-date, "Beverly HIlls", which reached #1 on the Modern Rock Songs chart. The Weezer concert schedule included the Make Believe Tour and a Japan-wide concert series in 2005.

More recently, Weezer cut their sixth album with Rick Rubin, which was colloquially known as the The Red Album. The disc featured their second #1 hit, "Porks and Beans", which won a Grammy for Best Short Form Music Video. Weezer tour dates were scheduled alongside Blink 182 for a nation-wide outing and they wrote songs for their upcoming album, Radittude, which was released in 2010. Weezer's concert schedule included headlining stints at the Bamboozle Festival and Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in 2010. Weezer released their latest studio album, Hurley, and a compilation of rarities, Death to False Metal, in 2011 . The Weezer concert schedule 2011 will have the rockers traversing the globe. The band has been rockin' their quirky rock anthems for nearly two decades. Don't miss a date on the Weezer concert schedule 2011.

Foster The People: Few bands have been able to have a top 10 album as quickly as indie pop up-and-comers Foster the People. With only one album out, Torches, Foster the People has captured the attention of audiences around the world with their hit single, "Pumped Up Kicks." Their success is all the more surprising considering the song deals with a school shooting, but the catchy dance sound that's indicative of the entire album has struck a favorable chord with critics and fans. Those that haven't yet heard Foster the People can catch them on their international tour dates in 2011; the ones that haven't sold out yet, anyway.

Foster the People was formed by Mark Foster in 2009, after years of being kicked around by the Los Angeles music scene. After working as a jingle writer and working on original compositions for a number of years, Foster began combining his favorite musical elements into the sound you hear today. He began posting his songs on the mp3 blog The Hype Machine and eventually began scoring small tour dates, with accompaniment by drummer Mark Pontius and bassist Cubbie Fink. The band was originally called Foster & the People, but was changed after audiences kept mishearing it as Foster the People. The popularity of Foster the People's music online combined with a breakout tour date at South by Southwest led to a record deal and the release of Torches in May 2011. The album quickly broke into the top 10 and shot to #1 of the Alternative charts.

As Torches races towards platinum certification, Foster the People are headed out on many, many tour dates in 2011. Concert dates are already underway and, while many tour dates are already sold out, there are still plenty of chances to catch Foster the People in late summer/early fall. The band is making it's way through tour dates in Texas and Arizona before ending up in California in early July. On July 14, Foster the People will begin concert dates in Europe, including performances at the Melt Festival in Grafenhainichen, Germany and the Lattitude Festival in Suffolk, UK. Foster the people will play tour dates in Australia in late July before touring the US agin from August to October. Foster the People will conclude their 2011 tour dates in the UK in late November, so buy your tickets from Eventful soon before the entire tour is sold out.

AJR: Adam, Jack and Ryan are young brothers from NYC. Growing up in Manhattan enabled them to pursue many creative avenues. Talented in art, dance, acting and singing, this trio has been performing most of their lives.

Adam – 20 years old – is a student at Columbia University, a dancer / dance teacher and most of all, a singer. His classes are noted in dance circles and he has choreographed performances at prominent venues.

Jack – 13 years old – is the little brother and actor of note. He has appeared in many commercials and in the movie, The Pink Panther 2. His stage presence and attitude inject a tremendous energy into AJR's music.

Ryan – 16 years old – is a multi-talented creative mind. Writing, arranging and engineering most of the music, creating the album art and the overall look of AJR's releases, Ryan is an artist operating in a manner well beyond his years.

The trio quickly moved out of the living room and burst onto the music scene. Starting with street performing around the city – Central Park, Washington Square Park, Union Square – they amassed a huge following and played to enormous crowds. Lately AJR's music has spread across the country and around the world! Engaging music lovers on Facebook, Twitter and Myspace, they really get to know their fans and get a lot of feedback on their music. As brothers, AJR's blended harmonies with intelligent pop music, ballads and iconic covers make their performances a fun experience for audiences of all ages. They live, breath and exist music – and love working together as brothers.

The Latest News Headlines

  • With a partial government shutdown extending into a fifth week, President Donald Trump on Saturday offered a deal to Democrats on immigration, setting out a plan which provides $5.7 billion for border security measures which he wants – with some of that money going to build a border wall – in exchange for temporary protection for two different classes of immigrants in the United States, an exchange which was quickly labeled a non-starter by top Democrats in Congress. “I am here today to break the logjam,” Mr. Trump said in his speech, as he said his new plan would be voted on next week in the U.S. Senate. “This is a common sense compromise both parties should embrace,” the President added in his remarks from the White House. “Everyone has made their point — now it’s time to make a law,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “I intend to move to this legislation this week.” 'As a candidate for President I promised I would fix this crisis, and I intend to keep that promise one way or the other,' President Trump says in a national address on border security https://t.co/PkxaI92qXK pic.twitter.com/uK4n43tybw — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) January 19, 2019 The plan offered by the President has two main compromise items, one is a bipartisan legislative effort known as the “BRIDGE ACT” – would only be a temporary solution for those known as “Dreamers” – offering them a three-year protected status in the United States, but not resolving any question about a longer-term pathway to U.S. citizenship. The President is also offering to extend protections for certain immigrants and refugees who have come to the U.S. under a “Temporary Protected Status” or TPS, and have remained in the United States longer than originally envisioned. That’s a change from last year, when the Trump Administration moved to send back thousands of people to their home countries – Nicaragua, Haiti, El Salvador, and Sudan – ending an extended temporary protection for those who had come to the United States – but a federal court put that move by the President on hold in October. It was the first major offer made by the President since this impasse began before Christmas, as Mr. Trump had previously waved off efforts by some GOP lawmakers to add provisions dealing with DACA and other programs which helped illegal immigrants in the United States. But his Saturday speech did little to sway Democratic leaders in Congress. “It is unlikely that any one of these provisions alone would pass the House, and taken together, they are a non-starter,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as she and other Democrats said the immigration offers were temporary, while the wall was permanent. “Unfortunately, the president doesn’t understand that an honest negotiation can’t take place while he’s holding the government hostage,” said Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA). Democrats were hopeful that @realDonaldTrump was finally willing to re-open government & proceed with a much-needed discussion to protect the border. Unfortunately, reports make clear that his proposal is a compilation of previously rejected initiatives. https://t.co/MFwebWSevG pic.twitter.com/yMTm4iP27h — Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) January 19, 2019 “You don’t negotiate a compromise with your own Vice President and your son in law,” said Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI), as Democrats noted there have been no direct talks in almost two weeks. “That’s not how this works.” “No genuine path to citizenship for dreamers, more intransigent insistence on an ineffective, impractical wall—nothing new from Trump today,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT). Republicans said the Democrats should accept the President’s offer, as both sides pointed the shutdown finger of blame at each other on the 29th day of the border security impasse, which began back before Christmas, when Republicans controlled both the House and Senate. “The President has made a very reasonable offer to extend DACA and TPS protections in exchange for the border security measures he supports,” said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). “Democrats have yet to make a single legitimate counteroffer throughout the last month the government has been shut down,” said Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA). “This is an important step in the right direction to restart negotiations,” said Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who has broken repeatedly with GOP leaders and the White House to vote for Democratic plans to re-open the government. Mr. Trump’s plan also includes: + $800 million in humanitarian aid to deal with an influx of illegal immigrants + $805 million for drug detection efforts at major ports of entry + 2,750 new border agents and other law enforcement personnel + 75 new legal teams of immigration judges #Shutdown can only end through mutual concessions that lead to an agreement. It appears @POTUS will offer concessions this afternoon. I hope Democrats won’t just automatically reject his offer. Demanding his unconditional surrender is not a reasonable position. — Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) January 19, 2019 But the plan also ran into opposition from some voices on the conservative right as well. 100 miles of border wall in exchange for amnestying millions of illegals. So if we grant citizenship to a BILLION foreigners, maybe we can finally get a full border wall. — Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) January 19, 2019

  • After yet another day which featured no hints of progress in ending a funding fight that has to a partial government shutdown taking paychecks away from over 800,000 federal workers, President Donald Trump tweeted on Friday evening that he would make a ‘major announcement’ on Saturday about his push to get money to build a wall along the Mexican border, which has led to an ongoing standoff with Democrats in Congress. “I will be making a major announcement concerning the Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border, and the Shutdown,” the President wrote on Twitter, giving no details about what he might announce.

I will be making a major announcement concerning the Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border, and the Shutdown, tomorrow afternoon at 3 P.M., live from the @WhiteHouse. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 18, 2019 “He ought to go ahead and declare an emergency, and it would be over,” said Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK). “I don’t know why he is reluctant to do that.” Inhofe – who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee – said Thursday that he would not oppose the President dipping into military construction funds to build the wall, though other Republicans have publicly opposed the idea. Democrats on Friday also pressed the Department of Homeland Security on another front – using eminent domain to take land away from landowners, in order to build the way – focusing on a case involving the Catholic Church in Texas, which owns land that the Trump Administration wants. “The federal government must exercise extreme caution when seizing private property,” wrote Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer to the Homeland Security Secretary.
