The Hella Mega Tour presented by Harley-Davidson will kick off on June 13 at La Defense Arena in Paris and run through Belgium, The Netherlands, Austria, Scotland, England and Ireland throughout the month.
“Harley-Davidson and rock & roll have been synonymous throughout history,” said president of brand for Harley-Davidson Motor Company Neil Grimmer in a release. “So it’s only natural for Harley to present the most epic, full throttle rock tour in history!”
The three bands, supported by The Interrupters, will hit North America beginning on July 17 at T-Mobile Park in Seattle. Produced by Live Nation, the 20-city North American outing will bring the bands to some of the most renowned stadiums including Dodger Stadium, Wrigley Field, Citi Field, Fenway Park and more. All three groups will play massive venues in Houston, Miami, Toronto, New York and more before wrapping Aug. 29 in Philadelphia.
To celebrate the tour reveal, all three bands will perform a historic show tonight (Sept. 10) at the legendary Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles.
Check out a tour announcement trailer below where the three acts alter the fight scene from Anchroman to tease the upcoming trek.
The Hella Mega tour will be in support of new music from all three bands. Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer have all released new singles today as a preview of new material expected by next year.
Five-time Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Green Day unleash their brand new, Butch Walker-produced single “Father Of All…,” which is the lead track on their forthcoming thirteenth studio album of the same name, out Feb. 7 on Reprise/Warner Records.
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 Nov. 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.”
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 album will be inspired by Weezer’s roots in metal music.
To preview the new material, tonight will mark the beginning of a three-day music takeover on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, with a first ever TV performance of the new music from Weezer followed by Fall Out Boy tomorrow night (Sept. 11) and Green Day on Thursday (Sept. 12).
Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Sept. 20 at 10am local time via Ticketmaster.
