Headliner announcements percolated — percolated, I tell you — on Monday morning in VegasVille. A couple of choice updates:
The Weezer Indie Rock Roadtrip will pit-stop at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood on Sept. 1. Spoon and White Reaper are the tour’s support act
This indie-rock show, presented by Live Nation, might remind of the great days of Aladdin Theatre for the Performing Arts, when that venue was the only spot on the Strip for rock bands to flourish. Tickets are onsale 10 a.m. Friday at ticketmaster.com.
These shows Weezer’s first since its “SZNZ” release in 2022, which produced No. 1 alt-ratio singles “Records” and “A Little Bit Of Love.” Weezer most recently played the Strip at the NFL Draft event in April. They were also a highlighted act at the September 2021 iHeart Radio Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena.
