Just over a month after a tour bus accident forced alternative band Weezer to cancel their remaining tour dates in support of their latest album Raditude, lead singer Rivers Cuomo has been given the go-ahead to return to the stage, reports rollingstone.com.
“Doctor says my lung is all healed – cleared to fly to Florida for the show. Turns out I broke 5 ribs!!!” Cuomo wrote on the band’s Twitter account.
After staying a week in an Albany, New York hospital, Cuomo was forced to bus back to Los Angeles because doctors were concerned that the change in air pressure when flying could affect his recovery.
Now that Cuomo is healed and ready to rock, the band is jumping back into business. Weezer is set to perform tomorrow (Jan. 20) at Florida State University; the school gets the show because they won a T-Mobile contest. The band’s website says that this will be their only 2010 show until they headline the first night of the Bamboozle in east Rutherford, New Jersey on May 1.
Their Raditude tour was cancelled after Cuomo’s bus skidded on ice and off the road back in December. That tour was originally scheduled to wrap up on Friday, Jan. 15 in Phoenix, Arizona.
