When Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer teased that their mammoth ‘Hella Mega’ collaboration would be hitting Australian shores this week, fans the country over erupted with joy. Finally, they’ve announced the gritty details of their trip down under, which will take place in mid-November.
The tour will give Australian fans the opportunity to see Californian rock trio Green Day live following the release of their thirteenth studio album, Father of All Motherfuckers, which is out today. It also post-dates the release of Van Weezer by bill-mates and American rock legends Weezer. Pop punk idols Fall Out Boy, who have been down under for a glory run more times than we can count, haven’t released a new long-playing offering since 2018’s Mania. Hopefully the influence of their tour buddies will rub off on them and we’ll see something announced from Camp Fall Out Boy in time for the November affair.
If you’re hesitant to purchase tickets despite all that goodness, rest assured that $1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the New South Wales Rural Service and Victoria’s Country Fire Authority. That donation should make up a sizeable sum, with the triple threat line-up hitting stadiums across Australia’s East Coast, New Zealand and even Perth. Support for all dates will come from New Zealand four piece The Beths.
