Hella Mega tour ticketholders have anxiously been awaiting the fate of the run as tours across the world began getting postponed and canceled amid the coronavirus pandemic. With festivals and other shows well into the early fall beginning to get impacted, it comes as no surprise that Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer are following suit.
The dates set to kick off in July with the Interrupters will now be moved to summer 2021. The new dates will be at the same venues and be announced soon.
“Hopefully this doesn’t come as a surprise, but as much as we were all looking forward to seeing you all this summer, everyone’s safety is our highest priority so we’ve officially made the call to reschedule all North American dates of the Hella Mega tour until next year,” the bands’ statement reads. “We’ll be announcing Summer 2021 dates with the same venues very soon, so hold on to those tickets. All ticket holders will be emailed directly with refund options as well. Please be safe, and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.”

In late February, Green Day were one of the first acts to postpone tour dates amid coronavirus concerns. Set to embark on an Asia run throughout March, the band made the decision to push the shows to March 2021.
Back in April, Pete Wentz shared that the status of the Hella Mega tour was still pending.
“Two weeks before quarantine began, we got together and rehearsed our set with our staging,” he told NME. “Our video and our lights because it’s a stadium, so you can’t just do it the week before.”
“Now it’s like we’re circling waiting to land,” he continued. “Nobody knows anything and it’s hard because we really want to do this tour.”
Shortly after, the tour package postponed the European leg to next summer with new dates still pending.
Wentz then promised the tour would be happening one way or another in an interview on the Gunz Show.
“I would say that this tour may not happen exactly at the time or when it was supposed to happen or how it was supposed to happen but the tour will happen,” he says.
