Fall Out Boy is withdrawing from two upcoming Hella Mega Tour dates in New York and Boston after a member of their team tested positive for COVID-19.
The band issued a statement saying, “Out of an abundance of auction, Fall Out Boy will not perform at the New York and Boston shows of the Hella Mega Tour due to an individual on the band’s team testing positive for COVID. Green Day, Weezer and the Interrupters will perform as scheduled.”
The statement continued, “It’s important to note that everyone on the entire tour, both band and crew, are fully vaccinated. Each band and their crew have operated in a bubble independently to safeguard everyone as much as possible at each show and in between shows. The tour also has a COVID safety protocol officer on staff full-time that is ensuring everyone is closely following all CDC guidelines.”
The New York and Boston dates of the Hella Mega Tour were set to take place tonight (August 4) and tomorrow (August 5) at Citi Field and Fenway Park, respectively. Following those dates, the next show is set to take place on August 8 in Washington, D.C. at Nationals Park.
