More than twenty years ago Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt formed Green Day as 15-years-olds in California. They added drummer Tré Cool along the way and became punk rock gods in the early 1990's. This summer, fans will be able to get their hands on Green Day tickets with the band announcing they will be touring Europe and the United States this summer. After playing dates in London, Venice, Paris, and other European cities from late May to early July, Green Day will tour the US throughout the month of August.
The tour will feature songs from the band's eight studio albums as well as their recent release, 21st Century Breakdown. The band's 2004 album, American Idiot, is presently being turned into a Broadway play of the same name opening on April 20th. Tom Hanks has even been rumored to be involved in bringing American Idiot to the silver screen in a big-budget movie version of the band’s rock opera. This summer should certainly be a big one for Green day.
