Green Day’s gig at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park has been moved due to “council works.”
The venue had to be moved due to flood damage at Bellahouston Park. A council spokesperson told The Scottish Sun: “Our plans for Bellahouston Park will significantly improve the ground conditions within the park.
“The natural landscape within the park creates a bowl-effect where water can collect…It is intended that the improvements will channel rain water away from the previously affected area.
oh hey, GLASGOW!! your #HellaMegaTour show on 24/6 will now take place @ Glasgow Green (instead of Bellahouston Park).

“..While this work is underway, three concerts initially planned for Bellahouston Park by DF Concerts will take place at Glasgow Green. We will be engaging with the local community around Glasgow Green as part of the multi-agency group that supports the delivery of major outdoor events within the city.”
Fans were notified of the move via email which read: “We’re getting in touch to let you know that due to ongoing groundworks carried out by Glasgow City Council at Bellahouston Park, the Hella Mega Tour with Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Weezer and Amyl & The Sniffers will now take place at Glasgow Green instead.
“The show will still take place on the original date of June 24th, just now at the new home of Glasgow Green, and all timings will remain the same.
“Your original ticket booking is still valid so you don’t need to do anything – just come down to Glasgow Green on June 24th and have a great time!”
Speaking to Kerrang, singer Billie Joe Armstrong revealed how the album title ‘Father Of All…’ was chosen because it sounded “badass”.
“It’s just a badass title,” he said. “I think it was Kerry King from Slayer – they have an album called ‘God Hates Us All’, and someone asked, ‘Do you really think God hates us all?’ And he goes, ‘I don’t know! It’s just a badass title!’ As soon as the title came up, I was like, ‘Oh man, this is good.’”
