After the release of Weezer (The White Album), the band began working on what they called “The Black Album,” but as they worked, they found the songs they were writing felt more like reveries from a beach at the end of the world.  Instead of forcing a different direction, they began an entirely new album: Pacific Daydream, which was just released on October 27. The album follows 2016's Weezer (The White Album), which earned the group a Grammy® nomination for Best Rock Album. Produced by the band and Jake Sinclair, The White Album follows 2014’s critically praised Everything Will Be Alright In The End, and continues that record’s celebrated return to musical form. On this tour, fans can expect lots of new material as well as the much-loved anthems for which Weezer is known like “Buddy Holly,” “Beverly Hills,” “Pork and Beans” and more.   

Weezer consists of Brian Bell (guitar/vocals), Rivers Cuomo (vocals/guitar), Scott Shriner (bass/vocals) and Pat Wilson (drums). Weezer last played at the Walmart AMP during the 2016 season. This will be the Pixies first time to play at the venue.

The Walmart AMP (Arkansas Music Pavilion), a Walton Arts Center venue since February 2011 is Arkansas’ premier outdoor concert venue. The AMP has presented headlining concerts for the past 12 years, including rock, country and pop. In its permanent home in Pinnacle Hills at 5079 W. Northgate Rd., Rogers, Ark., the Walmart AMP has the largest outdoor stage house in Arkansas.
