Green Day are playing Hyde Park next summer.
The American trio, who recently announced a February 2017 show at The O2, are headlining British Summer Time Hyde Park on 1 July.
Tickets go on general sale on 7 October.
“London in the summer, us and tens of thousands of fans having the biggest party in one of the world’s most legendary venues,” says Green Day’s singer/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong. “We have the best year to look forward to and this has just made it extra special.”
The band release their new album, ‘Revolution Radio’, this Friday and will be spending much of the next 12 months taking it to fans on stages around the world.
Green Day – also featuring bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tré Cool – first broke out with 1994’s ‘Dookie’ before 2004’s ‘American Idiot’ cemented their status as one of the biggest bands of their generation. With worldwide album sales in excess of 75 million, the trio have won 5 Grammy Awards and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Now they join artists like The Rolling Stones, The Who, Black Sabbath, The Libertines, and Bon Jovi who have all headlined the British Summer Time Hyde Park festival since its debut in 2013.
