Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer reschedule shows

The Hella Mega Tour will now arrive in the UK in June 2021.

 

Rock heavyweights Green Day , Fall Out Boy and Weezer have rescheduled their UK stadium shows, now taking to Glasgow, London and Huddersfield in June 2021.

All three bands will now take to London Stadium on Friday 25 June 2021, Huddersfield John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday 26 June 2021, and Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park on Monday 28 June 2021.

Original tickets remain valid. Fans who purchased tickets through Ticketmaster will be contacted by our Customer Services team with more information.

The Hella Mega Tour comes in support of Green Day’s recent album Father Of All…, released on 7 February 2020 through Reprise / Warner Records.

Tour partners Fall Out Boy and Weezer have both recently released new material too, with the former unveiling their Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die – Volume Two in 2019, featuring the previously unreleased Dear Future Self (Hands Up) with Wyclef Jean, and Bob Dylan.

Weezer have dropped two new tracks, The End of the Game and Hero, taken from their forthcoming Van Weezer record.

Green Day’s Father Of All… LP marks the band’s thirteenth studio album and follows on from their chart-topping 2016 release Revolution Radio. 

Forming in Northern California in the late ’80s, Green Day mixed punk rock with pop sensibilities to pioneer a new pop punk sound.

The trio first found huge commercial success with their 1994 effort Dookie. 

Containing the singles Longview, Basket Case, Welcome to Paradise, When I Come Around and She, the album was a critical and commercial smash.

Dookie has sold over 20 million copies across the globe and in 1995 earned the band their first Grammy Award for Best Alternative Album.

The band have followed up the album with 1995’s Insomniac, 1997’s Nimrod, 2000’s Warning, 2004’s American Idiot, 2009’s 21st Century Breakdown, 2012’s trio of albums ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré! and 2016’s Revolution Radio.

Some of Green Day’s best-known tracks include American Idiot, Good Riddance (Time of Your Life), Know Your Enemy, Holiday, 21 Guns, Minority, American Idiot, Boulevard of Broken Dreams and Wake Me Up When September Ends.

Known for their mammoth setlists, Green Day have performed to packed out stadiums all across the globe. The last time the band played in the UK was for a sold out show at London’s Hyde Park in 2017.

The Hella Mega Tour will see the band joined by pop-punk veterans Fall Out Boy, known for tracks such as Sugar, We’re Going Down, I Don’t Care and Centuries. The band, comprising Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley most recently released their seventh studio album, Mania back in January 2018.

The trio of heavy-hitters is completed by legendary California rockers Weezer, whose hits include Beverly Hills, Island in the Sun and Buddy Holly. 

Weezer, fronted by Rivers Cuomo, released their iconic debut self-titled full-length – since nicknamed the Blue Album – in 1994. 2019 saw the band unveil two brand new records – both the Teal and the Black album. They are now gearing up to release Van Weezer, inspired by their love of metal and building on their 2002 record Maladroit.

25 June 2021 – London Stadium, London
26 June 2021 – The John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield
28 June 2021 – Bellahouston Park, Glasgow
