Alt-Rock Kings Weezer Bring Their Unique Sound To Hard Rock Live At Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood On Sunday, June 8
Tickets on Sale Friday, March 14, at 11 a.m.
Hollywood, Fla. (March 10, 2014) – Grammy award winning alt-rock band Weezer will bring their quirky best-selling hits to Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sunday, June 8, at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 14, at 11 a.m.
To date, Weezer has released nine full-length albums, six EPs, and a DVD, selling over nine million records in the United States. Their debut album Weezer (aka "The Blue Album"), has been certified triple platinum in the United States, and remains the band's all-time best seller.
In 1996 Weezer recorded their sophomore album, Pinkerton, which became a cult classic with fans (going gold in 2001). It was quite different from 'Weezer'; the guitars were more gruff, the lyrics were deeper and much more exposed, and the band's talent and style had matured considerably. In 2004, Rolling Stone re‐reviewed the album and awarded it five stars, adding it to the Rolling Stone Hall of Fame.
With Ocasek again at the helm, Weezer recorded 2001's Weezer (aka "The Green Album"), which debuted at #4. Songs like "Hash Pipe" and "Island in the Sun" became radio and MTV staples. Maladroit (2002), reached #3 on the Billboard 200, and was certified gold. Two years later, the Video Capture Device DVD featured home video footage, music videos, commercials, rehearsals, concert performances, television performances, and band commentary, and was went gold.
Their 2005 album, Make Believe went platinum in multiple countries and featured the band's first two songs to top the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, "Perfect Situation" and Top 10 single "Beverly Hills," which earned the band their first Grammy nomination for Best Rock Song. "Pork and Beans" off the band's 2008 album also titled "Weezer", but better known as "The Red Album", topped the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks charts for 11 weeks, and its music video won a Grammy for Best Short Form Music Video.
Weezer (aka "The Red Album") (2008), with single "Pork and Beans" topped the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks charts for 11 weeks and won a Grammy for Best Short Form Music Video. The Red Album debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 upon its release.
Raditude (2009) included collaborations with hip‐hop producer Jermaine Dupri, rapper Lil Wayne and members of The All‐American Rejects. In 2010, Hurley debuted at number six on the Billboard 200 and became both the band's sixth top 10 album, as well as their sixth top 10 album in a row. The new album was quickly followed by two additional releases: an expanded deluxe edition of "Pinkerton" and "Death to False Metal."
