Green Day’s Mike Dirnt: “One thing I like about Australia is that you really get rock ‘n’ roll”

on April 20, 2017 - 6:15pm

Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt is in Las Vegas, Nevada, yet as he sits down for a chat, he’s rapt about getting sweatier than usual during Green Day’s show the night before.

“It’s funny because you’re a mile high when you’re in Denver, and I don’t usually sweat that much. After three songs I’m like, ‘Why am I so cold? Oh I’m sweating like crazy!’” he laughs heartily.

After swapping stories about our respective sweat patterns, we’re vesting excitement about the band’s upcoming Australian tour.

Green Day stays (mostly) politically positive at explosive Des Moines show

on April 4, 2017 - 4:25pm

It was all smiles in Wells Fargo Arena Monday night.

Smiles on the 20-something couple in the back row, singing every word and holding each other tight during the ballads. Smiles on the fans pinned against the barricade as every fiery explosion ignited from the back of the stage. Even the ushers could be seen grinning, bobbing along to the music.

And that’s what Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong wanted when he and his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted band invaded Iowa’s biggest indoor venue for two-and-a-half hours of non-stop energy.

See Green Day Sing Affordable Version of 'Good Riddance' on 'Colbert'

Stephen Colbert introduced a new segment on The Late Show on Monday night titled "Lyrics We Can Afford to Songs We Love." In the first installment, Green Day sang "Camptown Races" – written by the 19th century American songwriter Stephen Foster, and thus freely available in the public domain – over their 1997 hit, "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)."

Green Day performed the song acoustically in the dressing room, with Billie Joe Armstrong strumming a guitar and Late Show bandleader Jon Batiste accompanying him.
