Green Day have lined up Best Coast to open the January and February 2013 leg of their upcoming North American arena trek. The Southern California surf-pop duo will join the Bay Area pop-punk trio on tour starting Jan. 8 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., and remain on the road with them through a Feb. 8 gig at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.
Big news, Green Day fans! The veteran pop punk trio is currently streaming '¡Uno!' -- the first album from a forthcoming three-album blitzkrieg rounded out by, you guessed it, '¡Dos! and '¡Tré!' -- online in its entirety. The 12-track platter doesn't officially hit stores until Tuesday (Sept. 25), but you can get an earful of '¡Uno!' now by going to Green Day's Facebook page and clicking on the "Hear '¡Uno!' Now" tab.
When you're part of a major rock band, you often get the opportunity to share stages with your fellow musicians from across the pop music spectrum. Sometimes it seems as if Dave Grohl's entire career is built around the idea of wanting to jam with his idols at awards shows and benefit concerts. (Honestly, we can't blame him.)
Green Day continue churning out videos for various tunes off their forthcoming '¡Uno!' album, the first release from the punk trio's forthcoming trilogy of discs, which is rounded out by '¡Dos!' and '¡Tré!' The latest offering from Billie Joe Armstrong and the boys is a live clip for 'Nuclear Family,' which also happens to be the opening track off '¡Uno!'
Second only to Madonna regarding their sheer number of VMA appearances, Green Day delivered a high-energy performance of their hit song 'Let Yourself Go' tonight (Sept. 6) after a charming introduction by Emma Watson and Ezra Miller. Despite having fallen ill during the band’s recent trip to Italy, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong showed amazing signs of his recovery as he launched himself into the crowd and let the fans carry him at the end of the performance.
With 19 days standing between your ears and the first album from Green Day's forthcoming '¡Uno!,' '¡Dos!' and '¡Tre!' trilogy, the band has debuted another track from the disc. The tune, titled 'Let Yourself Go,' is the third to be released from '¡Uno!,' following the singles 'Oh Love' and 'Kill the DJ.'
Green Day's Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt have offered up some details about the hospitalization of Billie Joe Armstrong that forced the band to cancel a concert Sunday (Sept. 2) in Bologna, Italy. It turns out that local reports suggesting that the frontman was suffering from gastric problems were pretty much on the money.
