Weezer Will Play Broadway Residency This Year
The rock band Weezer will play a short residency this summer on Broadway, celebrating their year-long project SZNZ. Performances will run September 13-18 at the Broadway Theatre.
Weezer is releasing a new EP at the start of each season, releasing SZNZ: Spring earlier this year. SZNZ: Summer dropped today on June 21. Autumn and winter will arrive on those seasons’ solstices later this year.
Rolling Stone reports the Weezer residency will highlight a different EP each night, with the fifth night being an “encore,” along with hits from their vast catalog. Tickets will go on sale June 24.
Weezer was founded in the early ‘90s and found mainstream success with their debut Blue Album, with hits like “Buddy Holly” and “Say It Ain’t So.” Their Green Album, released in 2001, featured the beach bop “Island in the Sun.” With countless songs and over a dozen LPs over the past three decades, the band is one of the most recognizable American rock music groups of all time.
So far, there are only two shows opening before September on Broadway: Into the Woods and The Kite Runner. Prior to Weezer’s Main Stem debut, there's plenty of time for theatregoers to see their favorites before they close. September alone will also feature the arrival of Almost Famous, 1776, Death of a Salesman, Leopoldstadt, The Piano Lesson, and Topdog/Underdog, setting up a very busy 2022-2023 season.
