Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer Announce Worldwide Hella Mega Tour
The Hella Mega Tour will be hitting up the arenas and stadiums of the UK, Europe, the United States and Canada in summer 2020, and you better believe that we’ll be there!
Speaking on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 show about the concept behind the tour, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong says: “It’s kind of a Green Day idea. And we talked about how we weren’t really wanting to do stadiums and do something that was like throwback to Monsters Of Rock Tour. There was, of course, Fall Out Boy and Weezer and now we’re stoked.”
He continues: “It’s exciting, you know? But I mean I really kind of look forward to maybe actually putting out more music. I think just we finished our record contract… we’re free agents. So we’re just going to end up putting out more stuff. We’ll probably put out more stuff before the tour actually. And then I think not tour as long, but effective touring.”
And you don’t have to wait long for more new Green Day material, as they have just released the title-track from their upcoming album Father Of All…
Catch Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Weezer and The Interrupters (U.S. only) on the Hella Mega Tour next summer. Tickets go on sale September 20 at 10am local time.
