The move follows announcement that 2021 tour by Def Leppard and Motley Crue has been postponed until 2022, including July Petco Park show in San Diego

After being postponed for a year from 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic shutdown of live events, Green Day’s “Hella Mega Tour” with Fall Out Boy, Weezer and The Interrupters has now been pushed back by 12 days and rescheduled its dates and the order of the cities it will visit.

Instead of starting July 12 at Seattle’s T-Mobile Park and concluding Aug. 25 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in the Denver suburb of Commerce City, the stadium tour will now begin July 24 at Globe Life Field in Dallas and conclude Sept. 6 at Seattle’s T-Mobile Park.

As a result, the July 18 San Diego “Hella Mega Tour” show at Petco Park has now been changed to Aug. 29.

The original 2020 “Hella Mega Tour” itinerary included a concert at Petco Park on July 24, 2020. That would have been one day after Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Joan Jett and Poison were scheduled to perform at Petco Park on July 23, 2020, a date that was subsequently rescheduled for Sept. 12, 2021.

Monday’s announcement that the “Hella Mega Tour” has been pushed back by 12 days this summer and re-routed comes just three days after Def Leppard, Motley Crue and Jett announced on Friday that their 2021 stadium tour has been postponed again until 2022. Their Sept. 12 Petco Park date is now rescheduled for Aug. 28, 2022.

Tickets for the Sept. 12, 2021 Petco Park concert and this year’s other Def Leppard/Motley Crue tour stops will be valid for next year’s rescheduled dates. Both the “Hella Mega Tour” and the Def Leppard/Motley Crue tour are being produced by Live Nation, the world’s largest concert and live events producer.

Live Nation’s website includes a page devoted to rescheduled concerts and ticket refund information. It reads in part:

“If an event is postponed, rescheduled, or moved, your tickets are still valid for the new date and no further action is required. Emails will be sent to ticket holders notifying them of any available refund options for the event. The status of your event, and any options available, can always be found in your online account.

“If you have tickets to an event promoted by Live Nation that has been postponed for more than 60 days — and no rescheduled dates have been announced — a 30-day window for refunds will open at that time.”
