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 will perform a historic show tonight at the legendary Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles.
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 Dublin.
Produced by Live Nation, the 20-city North American outing will bring the bands to some of the most renowned stadiums including Dodger Stadium, Wrigley Field, Citi Field, Fenway Park, and more.
Beginning July 17 in Seattle, WA, the outing makes stops in Houston, Miami, Toronto, New York and more, before wrapping August 29 in Philadelphia, PA.
More dates will be announced and The Interrupters will appear as special guest on the tour.
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.
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.
Tonight will mark the beginning of a three-day music takeover on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, with a first ever TV performance of the new music from Weezer followed by Fall Out Boy tomorrow night and Green Day on Thursday.
All episodes begin at 11:35pm (4.35pm AEST) on ABC and can be found online at https://abc.go.com/shows/jimmy-kimmel-live.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, September 20 at 10am (Los Angeles time) here. VIP packages will be available next week.
