“We’ll be announcing summer 2021 dates with the same venues very soon, so hold onto those tickets.”

They added that all ticket holders will be emailed information on future dates, as well as details on how to access ticket refunds.

The tour was announced last September when each of the three bands dropped new songs simultaneously alongside announcing the run of gigs.

The Hella Mega lineup has had one run-out to date, though – the trio of bands played a tiny show at Whiskey-A-Go-Go in Los Angeles on the day of the tour’s announcement.

Meanwhile, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has been sharing a series of covers for fans in lockdown, as part of his No Fun Mondays series of quarantine sessions.

Armstrong’s latest cover is a take on Eric Carmen’s ‘That’s Rock ‘n’ Roll’, which follows last week’s cover of Stiv Bator’s ‘Not That Way Anymore’.

Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz also recently told NME about his potential plans to create a solo record while in lockdown.
