If you’ve listened to rock with any regularity over the past 30 years, this one’s for you: Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer have rescheduled their Hella Mega Tour for this summer. This is a tour so big, it has its own Twitter account!
The Live Nation-produced stadium run, featuring special guests The Interrupters, starts July 24 in Dallas, Texas, and hits 21 cities across North America before wrapping Sept. 6 in Seattle, Washington. The run also includes two new dates: an Aug. 17 show at Columbus, Ohio’s Historic Crew Stadium and a Sept. 1 stop at Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
US, it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The 2021 #HellaMegaTour is going down this summer, with a few date changes along the way…https://t.co/SgfTswSC50pic.twitter.com/x1RP4BdhN0

First announced back in fall 2019, the Hella Mega Tour was previously slated for March through August of 2020, which didn’t happen for reasons obvious to everyone. Fortunately, the rescheduled run takes place entirely in open-air venues including Dodger Stadium, Wrigley Field, Citi Field, Fenway Park and more.
We won’t rehash these bands resumés for context’s sake—you know why you’re here—but we will point out that Green Day shared a new single, “Pollyanna,” in honor of this tour news; Weezer just released a new album, Van Weezer; and, just as important as those things, if not more so, we just ranked Fall Out Boy’s best songs.
Pre-sale for all shows on the Hella Mega Tour starts this Thursday, May 20, at 10 a.m. local, with general on-sale starting Friday, also at 10 a.m. local.
Listen to “Pollyanna,” watch a 1994 Green Day performance from the Paste archives and see the complete Hella Mega Tour slate (plus the tour’s majestic artwork) below. Tickets and further info here.
