Green Day may have had a modest start in Berkley’s Gilman street punk scene in the mid-80s, but by 1994 when the band released Dookie through Reprise Records, the trio had become a breakout success. Since receiving massive airplay on popular networks like MTV, Green Day has taken home five Grammys, made its way to Broadway, and become one of the best-selling bands of all time. In 2015, Green Day was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the band’s first year of eligibility.
After 11 record releases, and a few somewhat quiet years, Green Day returns with a bang! Last month the band released the music video for “Bang, Bang” off their up and coming record Revolution Radio (out October 7th), and today Green Day has announced a North American and European Tour in support of that record.
The US portion will kick off in St. Louis, Missouri on September 20th and conclude in Berkley, California one month later. And no, Green Day won’t be playing the Xfinity Center or Gillette Stadium, but instead will revisit the band’s far more modest routes with a performance at the House of Blues in Boston! The complete list of Green Day tour dates can be found below.

The Green Day pre-sale starts tomorrow. General sale will begin at 10AM on Friday, September 9th with a two ticket limit.
In the meantime, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, who has made cameos in everything from The Simpsons Movie to This Is 40, will make his way back to the silver screen as the lead star of the Universal Pictures dramedy Ordinary World (formerly Geezer).
Armstrong will play the role of an aging punk named Perry, a man who leads a secluded family life in his Queens home up until his 40th birthday when he is presented with the opportunity to throw an epic rockstar bash at a hotel in downtown Manhattan. Ordinary World will hit theaters on October 14th.
