Weezer Is Designing a “Whole New Look” for Summer Tour

Credit: Sean MurphyWeezer's latest color-themed self-titled album, Weezer (White Album), has a particularly summery feeling. Fittingly, they'll be spreading that feeling across North America on a massive headlining tour this summer, which kicks off this Friday. For Weezer, the trek will be a chance to showcase not only new sounds, but a new look, as well.

"We're actually redesigning the whole new look for us," bassist Scott Shriner tells ABC Radio. "We haven't done a full tour like this in a while, so we haven't been able to bring out much production, but I think we're gonna go with a stage setup and kind of a theme and some different looks for us that we haven't had in a long time."

"It's been a long time that I can remember where we really had like an album-dedicated thing, we weren't just dropping in and doing festivals," he adds.

With a full tour, Weezer will have the opportunity to experiment with their setlists from night to night and to pick from more than 20 years of material.

"It should be a cool show," Shriner tells ABC Radio. "I think we'll be able to kinda diversify the catalog a little bit and try some different things."

Weezer's summer tour begins June 10 in The Woodlands, Texas and concludes August 6 in Irvine, California. Panic! at the Disco and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness will provide support.
