Weezer To Give Fans Strokes This Summer.
If you havenít heard already, Weezer is going to hit the road yet again! This time they are taking along The Strokes and Dashboard Confessional. Read on for details.
We got the following news from a post on Weezer.com:
The prep work is nearly done, and while a few details are still being ironed out, its time to announce The Enlightenment Tour '02! This tour will mostly take place in outdoor ampitheatres, taking advantage of the summer weather whenever possible. For the opening acts, a killer lineup has been assembled. Dashboard Confessional has been confirmed for the whole tour, and The Strokes will be also playing on a still to be determined section. Opening the whole tour (except for one TBA date) are Sparta, a cool new band assembled from parts of the now-defunct At The Drive In. So for most shows, one of the following 2 lineups will be in effect: 1.Sparta, 2. Dashboard Confessional, 3. Weezer... OR, 1.Sparta, 2. Dashboard Confessional, 3. The Strokes, 4. Weezer. There may be some additional suprises [sic] in the works as well.
Full details are on the way, and all the very latest tour info will be available in the "tour" section.
