May 17—There's good news for fans of '90s alt-rock and bad news for fans of '80s hairspray metal.
The Hella Mega Tour — featuring Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer — will take place this summer and includes an Aug. 23 stop at Target Field.
Tickets are priced from $650 to $59.50 and are on sale now via Ticketmaster.
The Hella Mega Tour was originally scheduled for the summer of 2020, but was pushed back a year due to the pandemic.
The other massive package tour — featuring Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts — has been pushed back to next summer. It'll hit U.S. Bank Stadium on Aug. 14, 2022.
Tickets for that show run from a whopping $4,250 to $99.50 and are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
The bands announced the news via social media: "To all our loyal fans, we wanted to let you know that we learned today that the tour is getting moved to 2022. This is the only way to ensure that we can play ALL of the dates for ALL of you who have purchased tickets. We appreciate you hanging in there and can't wait to get back on stage and bring the Stadium Tour to all of our fans."
The news comes at a time when major touring acts are making decisions about summer tours. Nearly every Twin Cities arena show scheduled for June, July and August has been either canceled or postponed.
As of now, the other major summer stadium tour — reunited '80s metal band Guns N' Roses — is still scheduled to land at Target Field on July 16. Tickets are priced from $995 to $49.50 and are on sale now via Ticketmaster.
Weezer and Fall Out Boy will perform live on "Good Morning America" on July 17, with Green Day joining them for an interview.
Monday, Green Day released a new single, "Pollyanna." Fall Out Boy is scheduled to play the season finale of "American Idol" on May 23. Last week, Weezer released their new single, "All My Favorite Songs," and performed live on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."
