Green Day, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy have made some semi-cryptic tweets, raising hopes of an Australian extension of their Hella Mega Tour.
In September, Green Day, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy revealed that they were teaming up to do a run of phenomenal joint gigs titled the Hella Mega Tour. The tour spans across multiple countries, with an extensive run in the US.
The tour also includes fantastic supports such as ska-punk outfit The Interrupters for the later leg of their tour, and Australian pub rock band Amyl and the Sniffers for the European branch.
The tour is set to start up in March, and continue around the world until the end of August. With a lineup consisting of three major headliners, it’s sure to be a rowdy time that no one will want to miss out on.
As for us Australians, we’ve been dying to know if we will be included in the fantastic throwback lineup, and our dreams may be coming true as all three headliners have tweeted encrypted messages using some cheeky emojis.

If this isn’t a blatantly obvious hint at something going down on our side of the planet, then I’m not sure what is. It’s more than a mere coincidence that each band posted the exact same thing at the exact same time.
With branches of this tour spreading to other countries near us, like Hong Kong, Japan, Manila, Korea, and Singapore, with a decent sized (and very convenient) gap between these shows and their gig in Russia, hopes are high that this tour is making its way to Australia.
Although nothing has been officially announced, we hope that these secretive tweets are hinting at an extension to an Australian leg of Hella Mega Tour. If an Australian tour is indeed coming, we can only hope that they’ll continue their pairing with our own Amyl and the Sniffers.
