Green Day are heading back to the UK for their first shows since headlining Reading and Leeds Festivals in 2013.
As part of the arena tour, the band play The O2 in London on 8 February 2017 with support from The Interrupters.
The tour will follow the October release of ‘Revolution Radio’, their 12th studio album, which finds frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tré Cool addressing the current state of the world.
“Of course the world has lost its collective mind… and me, Mike and Tré are lost souls too,” says Armstrong. “‘Revolution Radio’ is a movement for lost souls to come together, dance together, sing together, and most of all, find each other. That’s what the spirit of Green Day has been about since day one.”
The 12-track collection, which was produced by the band and recorded in Oakland California, follows the 2012 trilogy ‘¡Uno!’, ‘¡Dos!’, and ‘Tré!’ and is their first since being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year.
The five-time Grammy winners have sold over 75 million albums since breaking out with 1994’s ‘Dookie’, in no small part thanks to 2004’s rock opera ‘American Idiot’ – an album so popular it was subsequently turned into a Broadway musical.
