It looks like the grand overlords of pop-punk are about to announce a tour of monolithic proportions. Weezer, Green Day and Fall Out Boy have been dropping hints about a forthcoming tour, the Hella Mega Tour.
The rumour mill began churning after Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong tagged Rivers Cuomo of Weezer and Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy in a comment on The Office actor Rainn Wilson’s Instagram post, merely writing: “hella mega”.
Naturally, fans were sent into a flurry and soon put on their sleuthing hats to begin digging for answers. It didn’t take too long before Holmes-esque fans unearthed the website, HellaMegaTour.com. The website features nothing but a gif of Rainn Wilson in The Office and a password box. At this point, no fan has managed to correctly crack the code.
Alongside the cryptic Instagram comments and impossible-to-crack website, fans have also received flyers that seemingly promote the tour. The flyers were reportedly handed out at the alternative club event, Emo Nite LA.

Fans have also tracked down Instagram and Twitter accounts set up for the tour — neither of which have posted any content.
In what is perhaps the most incredible clue hyping up the tour — fans have reported receiving packages in the mail featuring t-shirts that combined photos of Weezer, Fall Out Boy and Green Day with mixed up logos. The return address for the packages trace back to Crush Music — the management group of the three artists.
It has been rumoured that Green Day will be dropping new music tomorrow, so we’re all hoping that the release of the track is accompanied by a slew of tour dates.
It is worth noting that Green Day’s Dookie and Weezer’s Blue Album were both released in 1994; marking 2019 the 25th anniversary of the two generation-defining records.
