BETHLEHEM, Pa., -

The chart-topping, Grammy award-winning rockers Weezer will electrify Musikfest on August 9.

Formed in 1992 in Los Angeles, Weezer has released nine full-length albums and six EPs, and has sold more than 10 million records in the U.S. alone.

The group’s debut, the triple platinum Weezer (aka ‘The Blue Album’), featured the hits “Buddy Holly,” “Undone (The Sweater Song)” and “Say It Ain’t So.”

In 2003, the record was named one of the Top 500 Albums of All Time by Rolling Stone.

Weezer has long been known for interacting with its followers, sharing videos, photos and more via its website and social media.

In 2012, the group added a new experience for fans, launching the Weezer Cruise, an on-the-water adventure featuring performances by Weezer and 15 other groups.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. concert are $49-$59 and go on sale Tuesday at 10 a.m. to ArtsQuest members, and May 2 at 10 a.m. to the public.
