Say it’s not like that!
Weezer canceled his Broadway residency in September due to “low ticket sales and incredibly high spending,” announced frontman Rivers Cuomo.
The Los Angeles rock band had planned a six-night stand at the Broadway Theater to celebrate their “SZNZ” project, which consists of four releases in 2022 corresponding to the four seasons.
“I just found out that our Broadway shows have been canceled (due to low ticket sales and incredibly high spending). I am very sorry to tell you this now after we have already put so much time, thought and emotion into it.” Cuomo, 52, wrote on the band’s Discord server on Wednesday.
“Additional apologies to those of you who have sorted out schedules and made travel plans to be with us. Thanks to @Broadway Producer for all your hard work and great ideas. I loved where we were going and I hope we find a way to revitalize our vision.”
The geek-rockers rose to fame in 1994 with the release of their self-titled debut, The Blue Album, and last year scored their first number one album, Van Weezer.
