Green Day

Reprise Records' Grammy®Award winning rock band Green Day have announced that they will hit the road for their first proper tour of the United States and Canada in more than three years and feature a very special show at NY's famed Madison Square Garden for one night only, July 27, with special guests Kaiser Chiefs. Tickets for this show go on sale on Friday May 15 at 10 AM...

Green Day are touring in support of their long-awaited eighth studio album 21st Century Breakdown, which will be released globally by Reprise Records on Friday, May 15th, 2009. Singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre Cool have been at work writing, arranging, and recording 21st Century Breakdown since early 2006 with producer Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins). The first single, "Know Your Enemy" was released to radio and digital retailers on April 16th.

Green Day recently performed 21st Century Breakdown in its entirety during a series of warm-up club shows for hometown fans in the Bay Area. In its review of a show at Oakland's Fox Theater, Rolling Stone commented that the band, augmented by guitarists Jason White and Jeff Matika, and keyboardist Jason Freese, had the "Quadrophenia-like hang of 21st Century Breakdown's classic rock melodies and lifetime-punk drive down solid" and that the album is "rock opera in which the rock always comes first." "21st Century Breakdown is Green Day's best album," the reviewer concluded, "and at the Fox, they proved that the rock opera can be as punk as a Clash 45."

Doesn't look a thing like GREEN DAY's people!

very underrated band saw them perform live at Milton Keynes Bowl in 2005 awesome band.

Posted by Crystal | August 18, 2010 6:53 AM

agreed - kind of ridiculous they charge that much (or anything) to join a fan club when they're supposed to be counterculture... but everyone's gotta make a buck somewhere, i guess

Posted by agree | December 20, 2010 4:03 PM

Wow...I bet this was an awesome show. I've always wanted to see Green Day live. Do you know when their next set of tour dates is?
