Three of the biggest names in rock music have confirmed they are touring New Zealand.
Green Day, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer are all coming to New Zealand in November, co-headlining “The Hella Mega Tour.”
The bands are playing two stadium shows together, the first in Dunedin at Forsyth Barr Stadium on November 20 and the second in Auckland at Mt Smart Stadium on November 22.
The dates are part of a global tour with the three bands which begins in June in Paris and makes stops in Europe and the UK as well as a 20-city North American tour.
Green Day is touring in support of their 13th studio album Father Of All which is released today.
The five-time Grammy-award winning band have sold over 70 million albums worldwide.
Rolling Stone magazine says “Green Day have inspired more young bands to start than any act this side of KISS, and that doesn’t seem to be changing. ” Entertainment Weekly calls the group ” the most influential band of our generation.
Green Day last played here at Auckland’s Spark Arena in 2017.
