Green Day Tap Best Coast as Arena Tour Support
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.
Green Day are gearing up to release a trio of albums, starting with '¡Uno!' on Tuesday (Sept. 25) and followed by '¡Dos!' (Nov. 13) and '¡Tré!' (Jan. 15, 2013). Since all three will be out by the time they kick off the tour, fans should have no trouble singing along with the new tunes. Best Coast, meanwhile, continue to tour in support of 'The Only Place,' an ode to their home state of California that dropped back in May.
Green Day are streaming '¡Uno!' in its entirety ahead of Tuesday's release on their Facebook page. They also recently issued an uncut and explicit (and therefore very NSFW) version of their 'Oh Love' video, which you can check out over at Playboy.com.
As previously announced, Green Day kick off the first leg of their 2012-2013 arena tour on Oct. 27 in New Orleans, La., and have dates scheduled through Dec. 10 in Tempe, Ariz. Check out their complete updated itinerary here.
