Weezer’s Indie Rock Road Trip tour is making its way to Australia, fresh from a sold-out run in the US where they wowed crowds of over 15,000 fans every single night. Prepare to be blown away by an unforgettable lineup of hits and beloved classics from their legendary catalogue. You can expect to sing your heart out to anthems like “Island In The Sun,” “El Scorcho,” “Say It Ain’t So,” “Hash Pipe,” and “Pork and Beans.” And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Get ready to groove to “Beverly Hills,” “Buddy Holly,” and a whole lot more.

Having made their debut with the iconic Weezer (the blue album) in 1994, this Grammy award-winning rock band has sold more than 17 million records globally. Their music remains a vital part of the coming-of-age soundtrack even today. Weezer’s songs have left an indelible mark on the world of rock, and now they’re set to ignite Australian stages with their undeniable energy and signature sound.

Joining Weezer on this rock journey are none other than the electro-rock icons, Regurgitator. Brace yourselves for a blast from the past as they belt out 90s hits like “! (The Song Formally Known As),” “Black Bugs,” and “Polyester Girl,” alongside fan favorites like “Everyday Formula” and “Kong Foo Sing.”

Get ready to experience their electrifying stage presence and relive the music that shaped a generation.
