Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz gave fans an update on their upcoming ‘Hella Mega Tour’ with Green Day and Weezer. The tour, originally slated to kick off on June 13 in Paris, now is being questioned due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Wentz explained to NME this week that the band has rehearsed and is all ready to go and hit the road once the pandemic comes to an end, but no one knows when they will be and that leave uncertainty with a lot of unanswered questions.

“Two weeks before quarantine began, we got together and rehearsed our set with our staging, our video and our lights because it’s a stadium, so you can’t just do it the week before,” Wentz explained. “Now it’s like we’re circling, waiting to land. Nobody knows anything and it’s hard because we really want to do this tour. It was a hard thing to orchestrate because there are three bands, you have to figure out who’s doing what and everyone had to really want to do it. I know as much as you do about what’s going to happen with it.”

In a recent Instagram Live chat with 5 Seconds Of Summer’s Michael Clifford, Wentz said “We have a big tour, and it’s like, no-one knows, because the information keeps changing, right? To me, a lot of the time, it’s like the bands are the people that want to do the show maybe the most, and it’s about whether you can do it safely – like, you wait as long as possible to see if it’s possible.” You can watch this below:
