Pete Wentz On 'Hella Mega' Tour: 'Nobody Knows Anything'


Will the Hella Mega tour featuring Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy make it to Canada this summer?

“Nobody knows anything,” Pete Wentz told NME, “and it’s hard because we really want to do this tour.”

The Fall Out Boy bassist said his band was getting ready for the first leg of the tour when the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders were announced.

“Two weeks before quarantine began, we got together and rehearsed our set with our staging, our video and our lights because it’s a stadium, so you can’t just do it the week before,” explained Wentz. “Now it’s like we’re circling, waiting to land.”

So far, only nine shows scheduled for March in Asia were scrapped. The three bands are scheduled to play Europe, the UK and Ireland in June followed by a string of U.S. dates in July. The only Canadian stop on the Hella Mega tour is Aug. 24 at Toronto’s Rogers Centre.

“I know as much as you do about what’s going to happen with it,’ Wentz said.

A renowned bioethicist said recently that it is unlikely concerts and music festivals will be able to happen again until fall 2021, a sentiment echoed by California governor Gavin Newsom and others.
