Rock icons Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer announce global stadium Hella Mega Tour!
Today three of the biggest acts in rock music – Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer, announced they will be heading out on the road together for the first time ever on THE HELLA MEGA TOUR presented by Harley-Davidson. To celebrate the tour reveal, all three bands will perform a historic show tonight at the legendary Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles.
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 thirteenth studio album of the same name, out February 7th, 2020 on Reprise / Warner Records. Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, CA, Green Day is one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, with more than 70 million records sold worldwide and 10 billion cumulative audio/visual streams. Their 1994 breakout album Dookie, which sold over 10 million and achieved diamond status, is widely credited with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock, catapulting a career-long run of #1 hit singles. In 2004, Green Day released the rock opera American Idiot which captured the nation’s attention, selling more than 7 million copies in the U.S. alone and taking home the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. In 2010, a stage adaptation of American Idiot debuted on Broadway to critical and commercial acclaim and now they’re taking the world stage once again with their new album and Hella Mega global stadium tour. The band will be also performing solo dates in 2020. For more informations visit the bands official sites www.greenday.com and/or www.fb.com/greenday.
Multi-platinum selling 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 15th 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, a love letter to their hometown city of Chicago that featured the full version of the band’s previously unreleased title track demo along with two new songs City in A Garden and Super Fade. In January, Fall Out Boy was featured on the gold-certified track I’ve Been Waiting, a collaboration from Lil Peep and iLoveMakonnen. Fall Out Boy’s seventh studio album MANIA debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in January 2018 and garnered a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Album.
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. It’s the band’s first new song since this year’s release of Weezer (The Black Album), as well as their covers album Weezer (The Teal Album), whose streaming numbers have surpassed 100 million. The inspiration for the new record derives from the deepest roots of Weezer – metal. The last time this vein of harder rock was mined by Weezer was on their much-loved 2002 album Maladroit. Weezer has sold 10 million albums in the U.S. and over 35 million records worldwide since their debut album’s release in 1994. Their catalogue has included such megahits as Buddy Holly, Undone (The Sweater Song), Say It Ain’t So, El Scorcho, Hash Pipe, Island In The Sun, and more.
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 on ABC and can be found online here. Additionally, each of the band’s new songs were serviced to all Rock and Alternative Radio stations today and will be featured once an hour on a three hour loop all day with Cumulus, Entercom, and iHeart radio chains.
The global tour kicks off June 13th, 2020 in Paris and will visit cities across Europe and the UK throughout the month, including Vienna, Glasgow, London or Dublin. Following the EU / UK dates, the North America leg beginning on July 17th in Seattle, WA, will bring the bands to Houston, Miami, Toronto, New York and more, before wrapping on August 29th in Philadelphia, PA.
