GREEN DAY Tickets
Green Day are warming up for Reading/Leeds with a one off gig at Brixton Academy, London on Aug 21st.
The last time they played in the capital Green Day sold out Emirates Stadium, so this, more intimate gig, will be a must for fans!
Green Day tickets for this Brixton Academy concert will be available on Aloud.com from 9am on WEDNESDAY August 14th!
Green Day - vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tré Cool - were kids from working-class backgrounds who came of age in the underground punk scene in Berkeley. Though they had already released two albums (1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours and Kerplunk), the band truly announced its arrival with 1994's Dookie, a dynamic blast of exuberant punk-pop that sold 15 million copies and earned the band its first Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Performance.
Over the years, Green Day continued to top the charts with the subsequent studio albums Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning, while entertaining millions of fans with their frenetic live shows, but it was their landmark 2004 album American Idiot that launched Green Day into the stratosphere.
American Idiot debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard chart, spawned five hit singles, earned seven Grammy nominations (winning two, including Best Rock Album), and raised the bar for modern rock and roll.
In 2009, Green Day released 21st Century Breakdown, which won a 2010 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. It spawned two hit singles: the gold 'Know Your Enemy' which was the first song ever to top Billboard's Rock, Alternative and Mainstream Rock charts simultaneously, and the double-platinum '21 Guns' which earned them three 2009 MTV Video Music Awards including Best Rock Video.
Later that year, Green Day collaborated with the Tony Award-winning director of Spring Awakening, Michael Mayer, for the stage musical American Idiot. The play bowed at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in September 2009 and set attendance records during its limited engagement.
The play went on to Broadway and ran for a year at the St. James Theatre and won two Tony Awards. The North American Tour of the stage musical is currently touring North America and will launch in the United Kingdom later this year.
