When you're getting pumped up to rock stadiums across the world with Fall Out Boy and Green Day, it's best to start small. So that's exactly what Weezer did on Tuesday night (Sept. 10) when they (gently) stormed Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform "The End of the Game," the first single from their upcoming return-to-rocking May 2020 album, Van Weezer.
The Hella Mega Tour co-headliners have said their next album was inspired by a return to singer (and Billboard cover star) Rivers Cuomo's heavy metal roots. Cuomo made that abundantly clear from the first seconds on the Kimmel stage when he ripped off some Eddie Van Halen-style fretboard tapping on his flying V guitar.
Rocking two studded leather bracelets and a Fall Out Boy baseball tee, Cuomo chunked out some stadium-worthy power chords as red lightning flashed on the screens behind the band.
