The Hella Mega Tour will hit Rogers Centre next summer. Plus: just announced concerts from Danny Brown, the Strumbellas, Prozzäk, Lowest of the Low and others
Turns out rock music can still carry a major arena tour if you package a few bands together that all had their heydays in the 90s or early 2000s. That seems to be the basis of the Hella Mega Tour, which comes to town on August 24, 2020 at Scotiabank Arena and teams up Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer on a mega bill of guitar-loving sounds with vaguely punk leanings.
Ahead of the tour, all three bands have dropped new music. Green Day’s new song Father Of All… is the title track of their upcoming 13th studio album, out February 7, 2020. Fall Out Boy’s new single, Dear Future Self (Hands Up) featuring Wyclef Jean, comes from their upcoming greatest hits album, out November 15. And Weezer’s The End Of The Game will be on their 14th studio album, Van Weezer, due out next May.
That should be enough to sustain ticket sales for a concert that will hit Toronto nearly a year from now.
