Weezer, Green Day And Fall Out Boy Just Posted Some Not So Cryptic Hints About Touring Australia
We're hoping someone doesn't Say It Ain't So but Weezer, Green Day and Fall Out Boy just might be touring our Island in the Sun.
The three iconic bands posted identical tweets at the stroke of midday today --no words, just an Australian flag, a New Zealand flag and a secretive laughing emoji and fans are absolutely losing it.
The three bands that ruled supreme in the late '90s and early 2000s announced their joint Hella Mega tour in September last year with a string of dates planned for Asia, Europe and North America but Australia and NZ were conspicuously missing from the list.
The musos finish up their first leg in Japan on March 28 and aren't due in Russia until May 24, so there's a good chance they might come and pay us a visit as soon as April.
Hella Mega was an idea spawned by Green Day, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said in a statement in 2019, where he also compared the collab to metal tours of the '80s and '90s that brought together bands like Metallica, Dio, Van Halen and Faith No More.
”We talked about how we weren’t really wanting to do stadiums and do something that was like throwback to the Monsters of Rock Tour,” he said.
Faith No More coincidentally announced that they'll be touring Australia in May so maybe Armstrong will get to cross paths with them again.
Nothing's confirmed yet but we'll be refreshing the Weezer, Green Day and Fallout Boy Twitter pages until we have some answers!
