Green Day tour 2020: tickets, pre-sale details, and full UK dates as Fall Out Boy and Weezer join Hella Mega Tour

Three of the biggest names in modern rock – despite two of them releasing their debut albums in the early 90s – are teaming up for a monster world tour.

Pop-punk pioneers Green Day, emo revival wunderkinds Fall Out Boy and sad boys turned rock gods Weezer are heading out on the ‘Hella Mega Tour’ in 2020.

As part of their global travels, the acclaimed bands will be stopping off in the UK and Ireland for a handful of dates.

They’ll take in gigs in London, Glasgow and Dublin, and the tour will also be calling into the home of Championship football side Huddersfield Town.

Surely this is the biggest slice of American rock the John Smith’s Stadium has ever seen?

The full list of UK and Ireland tour dates is as follows:

24 June – Glasgow, Bellahouston Park
26 June – London, London Stadium
27 June – Huddersfield, The John Smith’s Stadium
29 June – Dublin, RDS Arena

To coincide with the announcement of the tour, all three bands released brand new singles.

Green Day debuted ‘Father Of All…’, the lead track from their 13th studio album of the same name, which is set for release on 7 February 2020.

Fall Out Boy – who are releasing a best of collection titled ‘Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die – Volume Two’ in November – premiered their new single ‘Future Self (Hands Up)’, which features Wyclef Jean of all people.

Weezer – whose first two albums The Blue Album and Pinkerton remain some of the finest indie-rock records around – released ‘The End of the Game’, which will be included on their 14th studio album Van Weezer – due out in May 2020.

How do I get tickets?

Tickets for The Hella Mega Tour will go sale on 20 September from 10am.
