Weezer to perform at Buffalo Place 'Rocks the Harbor'by jmaloni
Weezer will perform at Buffalo Place "Rocks the Harbor" in downtown Buffalo at the Erie Canal Harbor Central Wharf on Friday, July 13. The event begins at 6 p.m., and is presented by M&T Bank and produced by Buffalo Place Inc.
Since forming in Los Angeles in 1992, Weezer has gone from nerdy alt-rock heroes to cult figures to arena-filling superstars. Their string of hits stretching from 1994 to today are instantly recognizable and include mega hits such as "Undone - The Sweater Song," "Buddy Holly" "Beverly Hills" and "Pork and Beans." Critics categorize the band as alt rock, power pop, pop punk and even indie rock, but music-lovers everywhere simply refer to them as their "favorite band."
Tickets for the show will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, June 8, and are priced as $35 in advance and $40 on the day of the show. Tickets are available at www.tickets.com. To charge by phone, call 1-888-223-6000. Tickets also will be available at Buffalo Place at 671 Main St., Buffalo (no service charges in person at Buffalo Place).
No coolers or alcoholic beverages will be allowed onto the concert grounds. Food, beer, wine coolers and soft drinks will be available for purchase.
