The 'Hella Mega' tour will stop off in Dublin in June 2021
Green Day, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer have confirmed the rescheduled dates for their postponed ‘Hella Mega Tour’ in Ireland and the UK.
The US bands were forced to cancel the inaugural European leg of the stint in April as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, telling fans in May that it would be postponed until summer 2021.
It has since been announced that the ‘Hella Mega Tour’ in Ireland and the UK will now start at London’s Olympic Park Stadium on June 25, 2021, with performances taking place in Huddersfield, Glasgow and Dublin.
The trio of bands will play here on June 30, 2021.
In an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 last year, Billie Joe Armstrong explained how the idea for the tour came about:
"It's kind of a Green Day idea. We talked about how we weren't really wanting to do stadiums and do something that was like throwback to Monsters of Rock Tour. There was, of course, Fall Out Boy and Weezer and now we're stoked."
