The Hella Mega Tour is the upcoming co-headlining tour by American rock bands Green Day, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer. The tour was announced on September 10, 2019 and originally included dates from March to August 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Oceania leg of the tour was canceled and the rest of the tour was rescheduled to 2021.

Background[edit]

On September 10, 2019, all three bands simultaneously announced the tour and new music.[1] On the same day, each band also released a new single: Green Day released "Father of All..." and announced its 13th album, Father of All Motherfuckers; Fall Out Boy released "Dear Future Self (Hands Up)" and announced its second compilation album, Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die – Volume Two; and Weezer released "The End of the Game" and announced its fourteenth album, Van Weezer.[2]

Overview[edit]

All three bands will perform at 34 shows, Green Day and Weezer will perform at an additional six, Green Day alone will perform at an additional five, and Fall Out Boy alone at one show. The venues consist of indoor and outdoor arenas, exhibition halls, and other outdoor venues.[3] On February 28, 2020, Green Day announced all nine Asia tour dates were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[4] On April 23, 2020, it was announced on the social media pages of the Hella Mega Tour that a number of the European dates would be postponed.[5] On May 19, 2020, it was announced that all dates on the North American leg would be postponed to 2021.[6] On July 15, 2020, it was announced that all dates on the Oceania leg would be cancelled and tickets refunded.[7]
