As we know, Fall Out Boy are having to duck out of some of their shows on the U.S. leg of the Hella Mega Tour with Green Day, Weezer and The Interrupters, owing to one of their travelling party testing positive for COVID. It sucks, but what can you do? Well, if you’re Weezer and The Interrupters, you can play one of their songs during your set.

In a moment of wearing-the-same-outfit-to-the-same-party awkwardness, both played Sugar We’re Goin’ Down at last night’s show at New York’s Citi Field. But both are great, so it doesn’t matter. Check them out below.

Fall Out Boy announced yesterday that they’d be missing two shows on the tour. In a statement, they said: “Out of an abundance of caution, Fall Out Boy will not perform at the New York and Boston shows of the Hella Mega Tour due to an individual on the band’s team testing positive for COVID. Green Day, Weezer and The Interrupters will perform as scheduled.

“It’s important to note that everyone on the entire tour, both band and crew, are fully vaccinated. Each band and their crew have operated in a bubble independently to safeguard everyone as much as possible at each show and in between shows. The tour also has a COVID safety protocol officer on staff full-time that is ensuring everyone is closely following all CDC guidelines.”
