The Pixies and Weezer will head out next summer for their first-ever joint tour.

The co-headlining seven week outing will swing through the newly christened Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood (formerly known as Lakewood Amphitheatre) on July 27. An additional support act will be announced soon.

Tickets, priced at $25-$79.50, will go on sale via a Spotify pre-sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 7 and a Live Nation app pre-sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 9. Weezer fans can sign up for access to the band’s pre-sale, which begins at 11 a.m. Nov. 6, at www.weezer.com.

Tickets to the general public will be available at www.livenation.com starting at 10 a.m. Nov. 10.

A general admission pit with no seating will be set up in front of the 100-level seating section.

The tour follows the release of Weezer’s 11th studio album, “Pacific Daydream. The Pixies’ set will last about 75 minutes and feature the band playing “anything they want.”
