Hella Mega Tour

Story by Jack Foley

GREEN Day, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer have announced they will be heading out on the road together for the first time ever on The Hella Mega Tour.

To celebrate the tour reveal, all three bands performed a historic show at the legendary Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles on Tuesday, September 11, 2019.

The global tour kicks off June 13, 2020 in Paris and will visit cities across Europe and the UK throughout the month, including Glasgow, London, and Huddersfield. London Stadium will be presented by Harley-Davidson. Special guests will be announced in due course.

Concert-goers in London will see and experience the newest Harley-Davidson motorcycles, including the fully electric LiveWire and their new, exciting line-up of electric bicycles.

“Harley-Davidson and rock & roll have been synonymous throughout history,” said Neil Grimmer, President of Brand for the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “So, it’s only natural for Harley to present the most epic, full throttle rock tour in history!”

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning on Tuesday, September 17 at 10am until Thursday, September 19 at 5pm.

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, September 20 at 10am. Tickets are £62.50 for Glasgow, £45, £65, £75 and £85 for London and £55, £65, £75 and £85 for Huddersfield plus booking fees. VIP packages will be available next week.

In celebration of this announcement, all three artists are also thrilled to announce new singles which will be a first taste of their respective forthcoming albums. All three singles are available now and the respective albums are available for pre-order.

Five-time Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Green Day unleash their brand new single Father Of All…, which is the lead track on their forthcoming 13th studio album of the same name, out February 7, 2020 on Reprise / Warner Records.

Multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominated Fall Out Boy’s new single Dear Future Self (Hands Up) (ft. Wyclef Jean) will be featured on their forthcoming record Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die – Volume Two, out November 15 via Island Records. The song marks the band’s first new music since the August 2018 release of the three-song Lake Effect Kid EP, a love letter to their hometown city of Chicago that featured the full version of the band’s previously unreleased title track demo along with two new songs, City in A Garden and Super Fade.

Multi-platinum, GRAMMY award-winning Weezer’s new single The End of the Game, produced by Suzy Shinn, will be included on their forthcoming 14th studio album, entitled Van Weezer, due out in May 2020.

The inspiration for this album derives from the deepest roots of Weezer – metal! What has metal got to do with Weezer, you ask? In his earliest years, Rivers was a huge KISS fan; Brian was a big Black Sabbath fan; Pat worshipped at the altar of Van Halen and Rush; Scott loved Slayer and Metallica.

The last time this vein of harder rock was mined by Weezer was on their much-loved 2002 album Maladroit; Van Weezer is primed to take that album’s sonics many steps further courtesy of producer Suzy Shinn.

The End of the Game is Weezer’s first new song since this year’s release of Weezer (The Black Album), as well as their covers album, Weezer (The Teal Album), whose streaming numbers have surpassed 100 million.

The Hella Mega Tour UK dates are as follows (all June 2020)

24 – Glasgow, Bellahouston Park
26 – London Stadium (presented by Harley-Davidson)
27 – Huddersfield, The John Smith’s Stadium
