Green Day Announce North American Tour

How’s this to wake you up after a long holiday weekend? GREEN DAY ARE TOURING! You read that right – the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers are hitting the road later THIS MONTH for a month-long trek around the US and Canada, beginning on 9/20 in St. Louis. Green Day, of course, are set to release their first album in years, Revolution Radio, on 10/7,  so assume we’ll at least hear Bang Bang and probably another song or two off the forthcoming album once the tour kicks off.

Tickets go on sale TOMORROW, 9/7 for Idiot Nation members and this Friday, 9/9 for the general public. Green Day has a couple stops in our area, so we’ll try to make live coverage happen in October. As for Revolution Radio, you can pre-order that right here. Check out the band’s tour dates below.
