Hella Mega Tour Green Day Pause Program

The organization and security at the Hella Mega Tour performance at Huddersfield’s John Smith Stadium have been branded “terrible”.

Fans of Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Weezer and Amyl and The Sniffers complain that there could be a potential disaster with thousands cramming the entrances and many complaining on social media that security seems to be quite lacking.

Bands as well as stadium management and local councils were opposed because rock fans complained that gigs had been canceled a few times in the past three years, so there should have been plenty of time to ‘do it right’.

Taking to Twitter, many attendees cheered at scenes of the performance, with surprise expressing that “nobody was seriously injured”.

One person wrote on the social networking site: “Horrible organization at Hella Mega tour in Huddersfield. Amazingly no one was seriously injured. And don’t force me to start because of the lack of women’s restrooms. @JS_Stadium @KirkleesCouncil

Yorkshire Live reported that a disgruntled gig participant told them the situation was “just like Hillsborough is being worked on.”

Katherine Shaw told them: “It was too crowded that we couldn’t get into the actual stadium. There was no separation between people entering and leaving, just huge crowds facing each other and no one moving. It’s a miracle no one gets crushed.”

“In the end I declined to participate because it felt a lot like a Hillsborough was being conceived.”

She added: “People are getting angry. I saw a few people shouting about what little security there is and people booing as we waited to try to get inside. “

Among those voicing “disappointment” on Twitter over the “bad plan” was Northern__God, who wrote: “Planning the Green Day #HellaMegaTour in Huddersfield is nothing short of a pipe dream; It’s a miracle so far no one has been crushed due to the terrible plan from everyone involved @KirkleesCouncil @JS_Stadium ”

Another added: “Since I haven’t seen a band live in 2 years but @Green Day is the top level. However, the event in #Huddersfield is so poorly organized that it is unsafe and can be avoided by proper crowd/queue management. You’ve got 3 years. Do better. #hellamegatour

An angry third fan tweeted: “They’ve had 3 years to host Hella Mega at huddersfield and it’s the worst organization I’ve ever seen.”

A fourth person offered advice to others who came to see the show, as well as slammed the organizers: “I went to the hella mega tour in huddersfield last night, if you go, drink lots of water .

“People panicked and fainted. Green Day stopped the show twice. The show was brilliant but there was not much security and made many people uncomfortable.”

Rheeces93 had the final say, tweeting: “#hellamegatour like hella’s unorganized tour. ”
