Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy joining forces for massive tour
Best. News. Ever.
Need a good dose of nostalgia to get you through the rest of your day?
Look no further, because Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy are joining forces for a massive 2020 tour next summer.
While these bands may live in the hearts of many millennials (and even some Gen X-ers), Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy are pretty much nostalgia acts at this point, so it will be pretty fun for longtime superfans to see these groups on stage for one night only.
Fans will definitely crave the hits, but all three bands are also set to promote new material, so to all the people crossing their fingers and hoping Green Day will play its entire back catalog: be prepared for that!
The "Hella Mega" tour kicks off with a string of dates in Europe at the beginning of June, and the bands will eventually head to North America in July to perform in stadiums in major cities around the country.
The tour will make a stop in Houston on Aug 1 at the Minute Maid Park.

In honor of the big news, all three bands released a new single Tuesday, as well.
Green Day has "Father Of All..." which will be the name of the band's upcoming album. Weezer released "The End of the Game" from its album that will be released in May, and Fall Out Boy released "Dear Future Self (Hands Up)" which features Wyclef Jean.
Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong told Rolling Stone the group was inspired by the "Monsters of Rock" tours from the 1980s and early 1990s that featured bands like Van Halen, Aerosmith and Metallica.
