Weezer + Pixies Concluded Joint 2019 North American Tour in Vegas

After roughly two months of touring across the U.S., alt-rock legends Weezer and Pixies wrapped their highly-acclaimed joint spring tour! The tour officially came to a close on April 12 in Las Vegas, Nevada, just days before Weezer's headlining (and star-studded) performance at Coachella!
While crowds each night proved to be a mix of ages in various Pixies and Weezer apparel, Weezer lead singer and guitarist Rivers Cuomo kept the majority of fans enthralled from the very beginning of their set with "My Name Is Jonas," which helped the band soar into success more than 20 years ago. After capturing fans' attention throughout the venue, Weezer rolled right through hits like "Buddy Holly" and their cover of "Africa" by Toto. The real surprises came later throughout their 21-track set.
In addition to their alt-rock anthems "Beverly Hills," "Island in the Sun," "Say It Ain't So," and "Pork and Beans," Weezer also brought out a slew of covers as originally heard on their Teal Album. Out of their 21 songs performed, six of them were classic multi-genre covers including Tears For Fears' "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," TLC's "No Scrubs," Black Sabbath's "Paranoid,"and even "Up the Beach" by Jane's Addiction that reinforced the band's patchwork roots.

Weezer's Setlist
Toward the latter half of Weezer's set, Cuomo hopped aboard the S.S. Weezer, which was a makeshift wooden dingy boat, around the floor throughout the venue. He performed a solo acoustic version of "The World Has Turned and Left Me Here" as well as A-ha cover "Take On Me," as he sailed through the crevices of Mandalay Bay's floor seats before returning to the stage.

Earlier in the evening when the Pixies hit the stage, it almost seemed like they were giving Weezer a total run for their money with their setlist of hits that became the energy precursor for the evening. The band featured classic Pixies tunes such as "Here Comes Your Man," "Wave of Mutilation," and "Bone Machine" that reminded everyone in Las Vegas of the righteous paradox in their quietly explosive arrangements.
Pixies kicked off their set with their iconic Surfer Rosa hit "Cactus," before moving into acoustic punk track "Nimrod's Son" from their 1987 Come On Pilgrim EP, among many others. Clearly, their sets have been a successful test of time, as evident from the different generations of fans in attendance.

As a band that tends to interchange different tracks for each tour stop, the Pixies incorporated another vital track to their show. On their final night of tour, their 24-track set featured their rendition of The Jesus Mary and Chain's "Head On" before moving into back-to-back hits "Where Is My Mind?," "Vamos," and "Gigantic" sans any encore.
