NEW YORK — Weezer is headed to Broadway.
The pop punk band will stage a five-night residency on Broadway this fall tied to its new “SZNZ” project, four EPs each corresponding to a different season, the group announced Tuesday.
The weeklong residency, set for the Broadway Theatre, will run from Sept. 13 through 18, with Weezer playing one “season” per night, along with “a unique set of Weezer classics, many of which have not been played in years.”
On the final night, the band will mix “all the songs from SZNZ and Weezer fan favorites from the previous four nights.”
The first EP in the release, “Spring,” premiered in March and “Summer” dropped Monday. “Autumn” and “Winter” are still to come.
Weezer, made up of Rivers Cuomo, Brian Bell, Scott Shriner and Pat Wilson, formed in the early '90s and has sold more than 10 million copies of its 15 albums, which include hits like “Buddy Holly,” “Island in the Sun,” “Beverly Hills,” “Pork and Beans” and a cover of Toto’s “Africa.”
The band’s “Hella Mega Tour,” alongside Fall Out Boy and Green Day, was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and wrapped in the U.S. in September.
