The alt-rock gods have spoken and given us a co-headlining summer tour of Weezer and Pixies — thankfully with a stop at DTE Energy Music Theatre on July 13.

While both bands have some new-ish music to play on the road, we're assuming that most fans will be going to hear the hits. Even Pixies frontman Black Francis has adoration for Weezer, saying in a statement, "We're all big Weezer fans, so we're really looking forward to this summer. We have a lot of respect for Weezer; they're not afraid to take risks with their music."

Tickets go on sale Friday, November 10 at 10 a.m.

Pixies just played at the Fillmore here in Detroit in September and we got to chat with the band. Check it out here.
