It took a hella mega long time to happen, but on Saturday (July 24) the eagerly anticipated, twice-postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic three-headed Hella Mega Tour featuring Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy finally launched.
The first show of the summer stadium tour kicked off in Arlington, Texas, in front of a sold-out crowd of around 35,000 people, and it featured the headliners giving the fans what they wanted over nearly six hours, serving up a buffet of hits in front of one of the largest concert crowds in the U.S. in more than 17 months.
“Take a look around you,” Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong said to the mostly unmasked crowd at Globe Life Stadium, according to Rolling Stone. “This is human contact. We cannot be locked up anymore. We need to be together.”
