WEEZER @ The Hollywood Palladium

WEEZER w/ Special Guest will play a special, intimate hometown show at The Hollywood Palladium on Saturday, October 24th, 2009. Tickets go on sale Saturday, October 3rd at 10 AM exclusively on livenation.com. This show is in support of their upcoming album Raditude scheduled for release in November. The first single “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To” was released in August and is available now.

Weezer was founded in Los Angeles in 1992 and began writing music and playing local clubs. After 16 months together, playing shows and recording demos in Los Angeles, DGC records (Geffen) signed Weezer and released their self-titled debut album in 1994 which was a hit from the start. They released three singles from Weezer: “Undone – The Sweater Song”, “Buddy Holly”, and “Say It Ain’t So”. “Buddy Holly” won several MTV awards that year, and Weezer eventually went double-platinum.

In 1996, Weezer’s much-awaited second lp, entitled Pinkerton, was released. it is quite the opposite of Weezer; the guitars are more gruff, the lyrics have a deeper meaning, and the band’s talent and style has matured considerably. Weezer released three songs from Pinkerton: “El corcho”, “The Good Life”, and “Pink Triangle”. Pinkerton went gold in record sales and has been a steady seller since.

Fast forward to spring 2000. After a long break they returned, playing unannounced shows under secret names, booked dates on that summer’s Warped Tour, and subsequently a nationwide club tour. Much to the band’s surprise the dates sold out instantly. Juiced by an overwhelming fan response and a wealth of new material, Weezer was back. Following another sold-out tour in the fall the band continued writing and practicing new material in Los Angeles into 2001. A Christmas song e.p. was distributed to fans and radio stations and shortly before the new year Weezer began recording their 3rd effort, dubbed “The Green Album” in Los Angeles, again with producer Ric Ocasek. With the album finished the band got back on the road for much of the rest of 2001. The band continued their relentless touring throughout the year, finally pausing to record their 4th album, 2002’s Maladroit, which went to #3. In 2005 Weezer returned with their fifth full-length album, Make Believe, hitting #2 on The Billboard 200. Weezer (Red Album) followed in 2008 reaching #4 on The Billboard 200.
