Nerd-rock legends Weezer might be way past their prime at this point, but their first two albums, Weezer (“Blue”) and Pinkerton remain among the best pop records of the nineties, and reference points for pretty much anyone under the age of 30.

So it’s with slight excitement that we report that – according to frontman Rivers Cuomo, in a recent interview with the NME – the band are thinking about playing the albums, in full, on a forthcoming UK tour. In Cuomo’s words, “we may do a special tour where we focus on Pinkerton and “Blue”, and play those albums in their entirety, because it’s feeling like that’s what the fans want to try. They will be in smaller venues, and I think it’s going to be fun.”

In more “playing old albums in full” news, ATP recently announced an event for next year which will see The Flaming Lips play 1999’s The Soft Bulletin in full, alongside Dinosaur Jr and Deerhoof, playing Bug and Milk Man in full respectively. Full details can be found here.

Weezer’s new album, Hurley is out soon, and features either the worst or best sleeve of the year, depending on your penchant for bears.
