Green Day, Fall Out Boy & Weezer’s ‘Hella Mega’ Tour Rescheduled To 2022
The UK and European leg of the ‘Hella Mega’ Tour headlined by Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer has now moved to summer 2022.
Initially announced in 2019, the tour was planned to go ahead in the summer of 2020, however had to be pushed back due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.
A joint statement from each band reads: “Europe + UK – this past year has been chaotic to say the very least, and while we hoped we’d be able to make the Hella Mega Tour a reality for you this summer, COVID had other plans.
“With that being said your shows will now be happening in 2022. Your tickets are good for the new dates, so make sure you hold onto them!”
The North American leg of the ‘Hella Mega’ tour is still set to go ahead this summer.
Earlier this week, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said that he “regrets nothing” about pushing punk rock into the mainstream. In an interview with Vulture, Armstrong said that, “I don’t regret anything. I think Green Day wanted to be independent from [everything]. We wanted to do our own thing, just be green. We never really were like, “Okay, we’re going to become …” I never thought, we’re going to push punk into a new, different level. We’re going to represent all of punk. That was never what our mission was.
“We wanted to play music for the rest of our lives. We wanted to be Green Day in the same way the Who was the Who. I think the only things that I miss are the communal living, living in punk houses with friends and being around that sort of energy, because that’s what I really attribute to punk rock, culturally. Sometimes I feel like I maybe prematurely took myself out of that.
