Legendary rockers Weezer will be teaming up with the prestigious Los Angeles Philharmonic and YOLA (Youth Orchestra Los Angeles) for the first time ever for a livestreamed show on April 16th in the U.S. and April 17 in Asia/Australia/Europe/UK. Performed at the iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall, and presented by NoCap, the livestream will showcase Weezer’s most recent and much-loved album, OK Human, which came out earlier this year on Crush Music/Atlantic Records, in addition to other Weezer favorites.
Tickets for the livestream go on sale TODAY at 10 am PDT and are available HERE.
Taking the listener bit by bit through parts of Cuomo’s every day, OK Human is a Technicolor symphonic spree that meditates on how over-and-under-connected we all are. In addition to it being the first time Weezer have ever featured full orchestration on any of their records, OK Human is also packed to the brim with some of the best, most personal songs Cuomo has written in the last decade, all of which shine brighter and bolder with splashes of string and horn arrangements courtesy of album producer Jake Sinclair and arranger Rob Mathes. It is possibly the only record ever created that waxes poetic on themes of loneliness, disconnection, and reaching middle age alongside references to Mrs. Dalloway, Blackpink, the La Brea Tar Pits, Audible, and vegetarian Indian takeout, among others.
And for anyone wondering what happened to the Van Halen-inspired rock album, Van Weezer, that was meant to come out last year: Van Weezer will be released on May 7th, 2021. Watch this space for more…
