The Washington State Fair welcomes rock artists Weezer on Sunday, Sept. 1, part of the Columbia Bank Concert Series.

Weezer is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1992, consisting of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead guitar), Patrick Wilson (drums), Brian Bell (rhythm guitar, backing vocals, keyboards) and Scott Shriner (bass, backing vocals).

Weezer has sold 9.2 million albums in the U.S., and more than 17 million records worldwide. Its catalogue has included such megahits as “Buddy Holly,” “Undone (The Sweater Song),” “Say It Ain’t So,” “El Scorcho,” “Hash Pipe,” “Island In The Sun,” “Beverly Hills,” “Pork and Beans,” and more. Weezer has won Grammys, MTV Video Music Awards and more throughout their career.

In 2016, Weezer released their tenth studio album, Weezer (The White Album), a self-proclaimed beach album that debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock/Alternative chart, and top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart. The band then embarked on a massive, two-month summer tour playing to half a million people across the U.S. Its 11th album, Pacific Daydream, was released in October 2017. The album’s first single, “Feels Like Summer,” has topped the Alternative chart, and is the band’s biggest song in a decade.

The band’s most recent album (Black Album), was released earlier this month.
