Weezer: ‘We’ll do the deluxe break-up for $20million’

Drummer Patrick Wilson responds to the campaign that offered the band $10million to split up

Weezer have responded to the campaign who offered them £6.3million to split up.

As previously reported, an online petition has been created which is trying to raise $10m to give to the band, in exchange for them calling it a day.

Now the group’s drummer Patrick Wilson has taken to Twitter to try and strike a deal with the campaign organiser James Burns.

“If they can make it [$]20[million],” he said jokingly, “we’ll do the ‘deluxe break-up’.”

Currently the online petition at ThePoint.com has raised £13 of their £6.3m target.
