Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer have officially postponed their massive Hella Mega stadium tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The trek was due to launch in North America on July 17th in Seattle, following a European leg that was set to kick off on June 13th in Paris.
But after the European portion was postponed last month, it seemed like it was just a matter of time before the entire schedule was put on hold.
The bands wrote in a joint statement on Instagram, “Hopefully this doesn’t come as a surprise, but as much as we were all looking forward to seeing you all this summer, everyone’s safety is our highest priority so we’ve officially made the call to reschedule all North American dates of the Hella Mega tour until next year. Please stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.”
The bands assured ticketholders that the dates would be rescheduled for the same venues next year, with refund options available as well.
Green Day released its 13th studio album, Father Of All Motherf**kers, this past February in anticipation of the trek, while the new Weezer album, Van Weezer, was scheduled to arrive this month but has now been moved to a yet-to-be-determined date. A single called “Hero” surfaced earlier this month. Fall Out Boy has been relatively quiet since issuing a greatest hits collection late last year.
