Weezer are currently on tour across North America, and apparently they are opening up their shows in quite a creative way.
Before the tour started, the band did a rendition of “Buddy Holly” as a barbershop quartet on The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon. Now, apparently they’re starting up each tour set the same way.
In case you haven’t seen the hilarious video with Fallon, you can check that out below first.
Weezer has already performed the first two shows of tour in Louisville, KY and Columbia, SC. Fans who went to both shows are saying that the band has opened the show with the barbershop bit, which is pretty amazing.
