Weezer announce initial Blinkerton dates, rename Blinkerton tour to Memories Tour in yet another questionable move

Weezer, who have only gained respect since the release of Pinkerton in 1996 (JK!), have confirmed the initial dates for their Blinkerton tour. Actually, it’s named the Memories Tour now, because, you know, it’s Weezer, and they do a lot of questionable shit these days. The tour will feature double shows in each city, with the first showcasing the “Blue Album” + greatest hits, and the second Pinkerton + greatest hits. Does this mean they’ll play the full albums and then even more songs from “Blue” and Pinkerton??

Meanwhile, =w= webmaster Karl Koch also briefly wrote about the Pinkerton reissue:

Brian [Bell, Weezer’s best-looking member] was in NYC and he checked in at Sterling Sound to see how the mastering to vinyl was going for the Pinkerton Deluxe edition quadruple vinyl set! Brian reports that things sound great and he was stoked to hear “You Gave Yor Love To Me Softly” blasting out the studio speakers!

The Pinkerton reissue has a tentative release date of November 2.
