...As revealed on Spin.com in this article, the tracklist details of the Pinkerton Deluxe album due 11/2 have been released. its an epic set, and will be available on 2CD set in deluxe double digi gatefold with 32 page booklet chock full of photos and info, As well as a 4 LP vinyl set in a hand assembled quadruple gatefold sleeve! Here's an interview with Rivers about Pinkerton and its reissue: “I Think It’s a Brilliant Album".
...A reminder, also out on 11/2 is "Death To False Metal", weezer's album of never-released studio tracks, all of which were intended for albums int he past but didnt fit it. Theyve been assembled into something that stands as a cool record in its own right - not just a collection of random stuff!

...Here's a sneak preview of the footage AXE will be posting shortly of Weezer & friends at the 9/21 AXE One Night Only show.
...Memories Tour update:
The 1st American Express pre-sale is now over, but stay tuned! Regular tix on sale soon - see below. And get your VIP & Ultimate 2-night VIP packages here!
A special note to all weezer fans: For the 'Memories' shows that go on sale soon, we know that "great seats" means different things to different folks. In an effort to help out those who may be feeling the economic hard times more than others, we priced a limited number of seats in each venue at just $18.50, first come first serve. And while the VIP packages guarantee seats in the first 10 rows, they dont take them all! Other seats in that prime area will be on sale to the general public in the general onsale. The VIP packages do indeed have a ton of great extras like meeting the band, a backstage tour, gift bag of goodies, a full Weezer experience and guaranteed seats in the first 10 rows, but to be clear you don't have to buy a VIP package to get seats in that area. We wanted to make sure that you have lots of options and were able to pick and choose how you want to see the shows. But dont sleep - all tiers of pricing and all sections of seats are sure to go fast!
The shows so far... (stay tuned!)
