HELLA MEGA
GOOD NEWS

The Hella Mega Tour, which like so many hotly anticipated treks was sidelined by the pandemic, is gearing up for U.S. stadiums this summer. Crush-repped bands Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer will share stages for the distortion-pedal-to-the-metal adventure, starting 7/24 at Dallas’ Globe Life Field. Live Nation is presenting the 21-city odyssey, set to light up such storied venues as Dodger Stadium, Wrigley Field, Citi Field and Fenway Park before wrapping up on 9/6 at Seattle's T-Mobile Park.

Two new shows have been added to the prior itinerary (the updated version of which appears below); they are Columbus, Ohio’s Crew Stadium on 8/17 and Milwaukee’s Summerfest on 9/1.

All three headliners—who collectively have done much to keep rock vital over the last couple of decades—have been active ahead of the big road trip. Green Day has dropped a new single, “Polyanna” (Warner); FOB will appear on American Idol’s season finale on 5/23; and Weezer has released Van Weezer (Crush Music), which many admirers consider their best work in years. The bands are also slated to join Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series on 7/16 for perfs and interviews.
