Weezer‘s Rivers Cuomo is set to make his live return next week, following injuries sustained in a tour bus accident last month.

Cuomo, along with the rest of Weezer will play the Florida State University on January 20 – their first gig since the crash, which left the frontman with three cracked ribs and a punctured lung.

The crash took place in icy conditions on the road between Toronto, Ontario to Boston on December 6, injuring Cuomo along with several members of the band’s crew. As a result, Weezer were forced to cancel a series of tour dates.

A message on Myspace.com/weezer explained that Cuomo will definitely front the band at the January 20 show.


Rivers‘ recovery has gone well so far, and he is feeling up to rock and roll once again – not ready to fly through the air, but ready to play and sing at least,” the message explained.

Rivers has been given a cautionary clean bill of health – so long as he takes it easy and is careful – and feels up for the show [on January 20], so off we shall go to Florida, for the one and only remaining [latest album] ‘Raditude’ show before Spring/Summer ’10.”
