Green Day Already Gunning For Show Of The Year As Aus Tour Kicks Off

on May 4, 2017 - 10:11am
Drawing on nostalgic '90s skate punk vibes, SoCal force The Interrupters had everyone ready to Take Back The Power as they rolled through an eclectic set of instant hits.

With bass so chunky you could almost take a bite out of it, a refreshing dose of ska was unleashed with She Got Arrested and This Is The New Sound, all delivered with a husky charm from vocalist Aimee Allen screaming with ear-piercing precision between gritty, uplifting melodies.

The Interrupters proved they were one of the most fun bands you'll see live. Punk is alive and well.

Live Review: Green Day + The Interrupters – Adelaide Entertainment Centre (03.05.17)

Green Day @ Adelaide Entertainment Centre Review

on May 4, 2017 - 9:48am

Green Day have finally returned to Australia, bringing their new album, 'Revolution Radio' to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre (3 May).

Green Day filled out the Adelaide Entertainment Centre with a crowd full of young, old and even families, waiting to see the multi-generational punk-rock pioneers as they hit their 30th year together.

Green Day launched the show with massive hit ‘Know Your Enemy’ from 2009’s '21st Century Breakdown'. From there they went into their new hits from 'Revolution Radio', which were just as well received as their classics.

This tour is a Green Day fan’s greatest
