American alternative rock band Weezer will tour Australia in January 2017.

The band behind Buddy Holly and Island In The Sun look set to make their first Australian appearance since their 2013 tour – ending a 16-year wait for fans.

“Yes … you will see us in January,” frontman Rivers Cuomo told News Corp Australia.

Weezer are currently on tour in the United States to promote their 10th studio album The White Album.
