Weezer detail initial ‘Blue’ and ‘Pinkerton’ tour dates, ‘Pinkerton’ expanded reissue

09.27.10 7 years ago

Weezer may have just released its newest album “Hurley,” but the band is busily promoting its past.

The alt-rock veterans are preparing a Nov. 2 expanded reissue of its 1996 classic “Pinkerton,” which will include a second disc and 25 tracks of goodies. Included in those are 16 previously unreleased session and live tracks, all the album’s B-sides and various other live cuts of “Pinkerton” songs from festival appearances. The expansion also includes an exclusive photo and an essay from Karl Koch.

This comes in advance of the band’s newly announce Memories Tour — during which, over two nights, Weezer will perform the Blue album (the group’s debut self-titled set) and “Pinkerton” in their entirety. “Memories” is also the title of the band’s most recent single from “Hurley.”

So far, the only dates announced include Nov. 25-26 in Los Angeles, Nov. 29-30 in San Francisco and Dec. 14-15 in Boston. They have also teased New York dates, to be announced. More details below.
