Green Day postpone launch of European tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer

Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer have postponed the start of their Hella Mega European tour.

Set to begin in Paris, France on June 13 (details below), the bands are shutting down plans for the first five dates of the series, which is currently scheduled to open in Glasgow, Scotland on June 24.

“There’s nothing that makes our bands happier than playing shows, and maybe no other tour that we’ve all been this excited for, but due to the current health crisis, we’re having to postpone a number of our European shows,” says the three acts in a joint statement. “We’re just as disappointed as you are, but the safety of our fans, staff and touring crew is our top priority.

“We’re working hard to finalize dates for the rescheduled shows next summer, so hold on to those tickets.

“Keep rocking…safely…at home.”

The nine-show run was set to see Green Day performing material from their new album, “Father Of All”, with Weezer on the road supporting the May 15 release of “Van Weezer”, while Fall Out Boy will issue “Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die – Volume Two” this November.

Following opening night in Glasgow, the trio will play sold-out shows in London and Huddersfield, UK before wrapping the trip up in Dublin, Ireland on June 29.
