[pitchfork.com] Weezer's Memories Tour may be named after their new single, but it's actually centered around their first two albums, which just about everyone agrees remain their best. As previously reported, the tour will stop for two nights in every city, playing their self-titled 1994 "Blue Album" in full the first night, and 1996's cult fave Pinkerton the second. (They'll also play some "greatest hits" on both nights, so if you thought you'd get out of a 2010 Weezer show without hearing "Beverly Hills", sorry.)
Yesterday, Weezer announced announced the first four dates of the Memories Tour on their website. Before the Memories Tour kicks off, they'll also play a few other U.S. shows; we've got all their dates listed below.
In further Weezer news, the long-rumored Pinkerton deluxe reissue seems to be coming along nicely. That same Weezer website update mentions that mastering for the quadruple (!) vinyl set is currently in progress.
