    GREEN DAY LAUNCHES U.S. ARENA TOUR TONIGHT IN CHICAGO

    Los Angeles, CA – March 28, 2013 –Reprise Records' multi-platinum Grammy®Award-winning Green Day will kick off their 2013 U.S. arena tour tonight in Chicago at Allstate Arena. The forthcoming U.S. arena shows follow three recent dates at intimate venues in Pomona, Tempe, and El Paso as well a highly momentous career spanning set during Austin’s South By Southwest. Billboard declared the set “…a punk rock extravaganza”, while the Associated Press asserted, “…they’re playing like the old days.”

    Green Day is touring in support of its recently released album trilogy Green Day ¡Uno!, Green Day ¡Dos!, and Green Day ¡Tré! The albums are the follow-up to the Grammy Award-winning 21st Century Breakdown, and were produced by the band's long-time producer Rob Cavallo.

    The band recently premiered their documentary film ¡Cuatro! which was featured in the 20th Anniversary South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference. The film takes you inside the world of Green Day, chronicling the conceptualizing and recording of the album trilogy and features intimate live performances that took place along the way. Additionally, the Doug Hamilton directed Broadway Idiot premiered at SXSW. The film pulls back the curtain with lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong as he ventures into the strange new world of Broadway with their massive hit musical American Idiot.

    Green Day is vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tré Cool.  

     

    “Green Day Blast Back With a Supercharged Billie Joe Armstrong.”

    Rolling Stone

     

    “Armstrong remains the epitome of a great frontman, a true rock and roll super star.”
