Weezer not playing Soundwave 2011

Call it a persistent rumour or repeated wishful thinking, but the oft touted story that Weezer will be touring Australia soon has again been quashed yet again… for now anyway.

The whispers that Weezer would be playing at Soundwave 2011 had Ned our Latvian bookie placing the band as short priced favourites to be announced as part of the Soundwave lineup, but Soundwave promoter AJ Maddah dashed that gamble this morning by confirming this morning that the third headliner “is not Weezer…. They’ll be here later in 2011.”

“Later” huh? We’ve heard that before … maybe Weezer really does hate Australia
