The rumors were true: Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy are uniting for a stadium tour, and Minnesota is on the schedule.

Dubbed the Hella Mega Tour, the rock bands will play Target Field on Aug. 11, 2020, with tickets going on sale almost 11 months in advance on Friday, Sept. 20.

Presales meanwhile will start at day earlier, at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19, Target Field announced.

The global tour starts in Singapore in March, hitting Europe before landing on U.S. soil in July.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Green Day's Billy Joe Armstrong said the idea was like a throwback to the "Monsters of Rock" tours of the '80s and '90s, that feature the likes of Metallica, Van Halen and Aerosmith.

All three bands released new songs on Tuesday to mark the announcement:
