Green Day’s ‘Hella Mega Tour’ just happens to coincide with Glastonbury 2020 weekend…
Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer have announced joint tour dates for their upcoming ‘Hella Mega Tour’.
The three rock titan acts have all released new songs to celebrate the announcement as they confirmed they’ll be hitting the road together in 2020 – coming to the UK, Europe and America next summer.
Seeing that the tour dates coincide with the week of Glastonbury in June 2020 and leave open a perfect Glasto-sized-gap on the Sunday – in addition to the fact that this year’s Glastonbury saw Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong visit the festival as a punter, to see his son’s band play (which some Glasto-fans deciphered as a hint of things to come) – it is not surprising that the Glasto rumour-mill kicked into action, spinning the rumour of a possibility for the punk rock band to play the legendary festival next year.
May put money on greenday to headline Glastonbury

Green Day playing a big London gig on Glastonbury weekend is bothering me. Could they also play the Sunday?

The full dates for the Hella Mega Tour will see the three rock bands play Glasgow, Bellahouston Park on 24 June, London, London Stadium on 26 June, Huddersfield, The John Smith’s Stadium on the 27 June and Dublin, RDS Arena on the 27th of the same month.
The reason Green Day will probably not be playing Glastonbury 2020 is very simply due to the fact that if they do, that would mean they would be playing 4 nights in a row (which as far as we know, would be unprecedented)!
All that being said, as always, with Glastonbury Festival you just never know, and to be 100% certain we would have to wait for the official announcement on this when it comes.
Meanwhile, Glastonbury confirmed last week that the first tickets for next year’s festival will go up for grabs at the beginning of October – with coach + ticket packages on sale at 6pm BST on Thursday, 3rd October, before general admission tickets at 9am BST on Sunday, 6th October.
Glastonbury 2020 will see the legendary festival celebrate its 50th anniversary and has been confirmed to take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
