Here’s an announcement that is blowing the minds of our mid-2000s selves: Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy are going on tour together.
With U.S. dates starting in 2020, the “Hella Mega Tour will feature the trio of iconic rock bands playing stadiums across North America. It kicks off July 17 at Seattle’s T-Mobile Park and wraps up Aug. 29 at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
Webstore presale tickets for the North American leg begin at 10 a.m. local time Sept. 16, while mailing list presale tickets begin at 11 a.m. local time, according to Green Day’s website. General sale starts at 10 a.m. local time Sept. 20 on Ticketmaster.
Los Angeles ska-punk band the Interrupters will open each show.
Wait, there’s more good news.
On Tuesday, the three headliners each released singles to accompany the tour announcement.
Green Day’s “Father of All…” is a foot-tapping single from the band’s forthcoming album of the same name due out Feb. 7. The band described the new album in a Sept. 10 tweet as, “The life AND death of the party. Not political. Surviving in chaos.”
Weezer’s “The End of the Game” is another earworm with a solid guitar riff and catchy chorus. It’ll be part of the band’s new album, “Van Weezer,” expected May 15. Weezer is reportedly working on a second new album, “OK Human.”
Fall Out Boy’s “Dear Future Self (Hands Up)” is a fiery, fast-paced single featuring rapper Wyclef Jean.
Catch each band on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” this week. Weezer will perform on Tuesday, Fall Out Boy on Wednesday and Green Day on Thursday.
