*updated* with 7/9 Toronto show info, below...

...currently in frantic preparations for todays flight to Frankfurt Germany, to start Leg #2 of the 2005 Make Believe Tour: Europe in June. (ahh, how romantic.) Not much sleeping happening right now, but thats what 10 hour flights are for, right?

...okay, by now I was expecting to receive the rest of the July tour dates, and pass them on to you. But they are not quite ready yet, it seems....HOWEVER we do have confirmation of a show on 7/9 in Toronto at the Molson Ampitheatre, with alt-godz The Pixies! The main ticket onsale will be on Monday, 6/6, starting at noon. However, there will be a 102.1 The Edge PRESALE this Friday, 6/3, at 10 AM! The info you need will be on their 'Inside Edge' section, so go there and sign up if you want in. Also, there was/is some sort of House Of Blues Canada presale going on today, but it was an HOB email only campaign, so it took some time for word to spread. As of noon Wednesday, it looks like its still going on, but theres no way to tell what type of tickets are being offered (pit or seats etc.)

NOTE that with 6/1 being a major travel day, I may be 'in the air' when new tour info comes to light, and thus unable to immediately update. Keep an eye on the Weezer Ticketmaster page for any possible suprises!

Meanwhile, tickets for the 7/7 show (with many bands incl. the Pixies!) at Milwaukee Summerfest look to still be on sale and available here.

*****WEEZER = MSN ARTIST OF THE MONTH! Thanks to YOUR votes and a huge effort from the Weezer Jonas Street Team!

...another clever Pat interview, this time with FHM mag, here. (Its also in the June newsstand issue of FHM, for those lovers of paper ephemera.)

...theres lots of interesting radio and chart action going on these past few days, with no less than 4 Make Believe songs getting noticable playlist-level play on a good amount of stations and the ol' juggernaut 'Beverly Hills' continuing to kick some ass in the big weird world of pop radio. I'll keep updating as the info piles in. For now, a catnap before the travel insanity begins...
