Today Green Day, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer, three of the biggest acts in rock music, announced they will be heading out on the road together for the first time ever on THE HELLA MEGA TOUR, stopping at London Stadium on Friday 26 June 2020.
The show at London Stadium will be presented by Harley-Davidson, with tickets due to go on sale from 10am on Friday 20 September. London Stadium subscribers can enjoy 48 hours early access to tickets through our venue pre-sale, from 10am on Wednesday 18 September. Our venue allocation of general admission tickets are priced at £75, and are subject to booking fees.
The global tour begins in Paris on 13 June, and includes dates in Austria, the Netherlands and Belgium, before a trio of UK dates. The tour will call at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow on Wednesday 24 June, before arriving at London Stadium on Friday 26 June. The tour will make one further stop, in Huddersfield, before heading back to the USA for a run of stateside dates.
Concert-goers in London will see and experience the newest Harley-Davidson motorcycles, including the fully electric LiveWire and their new, exciting lineup of electric bicycles.
'Harley-Davidson and rock & roll have been synonymous throughout history,' said Neil Grimmer, President of Brand for the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. 'So it's only natural for Harley to present the most epic, full throttle rock tour in history!'
Five-time Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Green Day unleash their brand new single 'Father Of All…,' which is the lead track on their forthcoming thirteenth studio album of the same name, out February 7, 2020 on Reprise / Warner Records.
Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, CA, Green Day is one of the world's best-selling bands of all time, with more than 70 million records sold worldwide and 10 billion cumulative audio/visual streams. Their 1994 breakout album Dookie, which sold over 10 million and achieved diamond status, is widely credited with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock, catapulting a career-long run of #1 hit singles.
Entertainment Weekly calls Green Day, 'The most influential band of their generation,' while Rolling Stone attests, 'Green Day have inspired more young bands to start than any act this side of KISS, and that doesn't seem to be changing.'
In 2004, Green Day released the rock opera American Idiot which captured the nation's attention, selling more than 7 million copies in the U.S. alone and taking home the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. Mojo declared 'It's exhilarating stuff, the kind of record that sets new parameters as to what is possible from a punk rock'n'roll band in the 21st century.' In 2010, a stage adaptation of American Idiot debuted on Broadway to critical and commercial acclaim and now they're taking the world stage once again with their new album and Hella Mega global stadium tour.
Multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominated Fall Out Boy's new single 'Dear Future Self (Hands Up)' ft. Wyclef Jean will be featured on their forthcoming record Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die - Volume Two, out November 15 via Island Records.
The song marks the band's first new music since the August 2018 release of the three-song Lake Effect Kid EP, a love letter to their hometown city of Chicago that featured the full version of the band's previously unreleased title track demo along with two new songs 'City in A Garden' and 'Super Fade.'
In January, Fall Out Boy was featured on the gold-certified track 'I've Been Waiting,' a collaboration from Lil Peep and iLoveMakonnen. Fall Out Boy's seventh studio album M A N I A debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in January 2018 and garnered a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Album.
Multi-platinum, GRAMMY award-winning Weezer's new single 'The End of the Game,' produced by Suzy Shinn, will be included on their forthcoming 14th studio album, entitled Van Weezer, due out in May 2020. The inspiration for this album derives from the deepest roots of Weezer - metal! What has metal got to do with Weezer, you ask? In his earliest years, Rivers was a huge KISS fan; Brian was a big Black Sabbath fan; Pat worshipped at the altar of Van Halen and Rush; Scott loved Slayer and Metallica.
The last time this vein of harder rock was mined by Weezer was on their much-loved 2002 album Maladroit; Van Weezer is primed to take that album's sonics many steps further courtesy of producer Suzy Shinn. 'The End of the Game' is Weezer's first new song since this year's release of Weezer (The Black Album), as well as their covers album, Weezer (The Teal Album), whose streaming numbers have surpassed 100 million.
Weezer has sold 10 million albums in the U.S., and over 35 million records worldwide since their debut album's release in 1994. Their catalogue has included such megahits as 'Buddy Holly,' 'Undone (The Sweater Song),' 'Say It Ain't So,' 'El Scorcho,' 'Hash Pipe,' 'Island In The Sun,' 'Beverly Hills,' 'Pork and Beans,' and more.
