Hints were dropped and teased, and now it’s official: Weezer, Green Day, and Fall Out Boy will embark on a joint tour next year!
Green Day’s frontman Billie Joe Armstrong talked to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 about how this surprising project came to be: “It’s kind of a Green Day idea. […] 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.”
Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy added his own perspective: “To me, I remember, in the 90s, there was this one summer, and Guns and Roses, Metallica went on the stadium tour and my parents didn’t let me go to it. You want to recreate that memory.”
Hints about the joint tour were popping up on social media for the last several weeks, with members of the bands tagging each other with cryptic messages, a mysterious HellaMegaTour.com site and even mislabeled merchandise being sent out to fans.
To celebrate the announcement going official, all three bands have released new songs. All signs are pointing to 2020’s Hella Mega Tour being an event no pop-punker would want to miss!
