    Green Day to release '¡Cuatro!' documentary on DVD
    August 06, 2013

    The film will be released with the '¡Tré!' album on August 26 after their Reading and Leeds performances

    Green Day are set to release their documentary film, '¡Cuatro!', on August 26.

    The film will come out as a CD/DVD, alongside the band's '¡Tré!' album - the final part of the punk band's recent '¡Uno!', '¡Dos!' and '¡Tre!' trilogy - which was first released at the start of the year.

    The film received its world premiere at the Winter X Games back in January, and also screened at SXSW in Austin, Texas in March. The behind-the-scenes documentary, directed by Tim Lynch, looks at the process of making '¡Uno!', '¡Dos!' and '¡Tre!', as well as showing footage from the band's 2012 Stateside shows.

    Of the film Mike Dirnt, the band's bassist, previously said: "¡Cuatro! brings our fans one step closer by giving them even more access and revealing what it was like for us to make these records."

    Green Day played London's Emirates Stadium - the huge 60,000 capacity venue commonly used by Arsenal Football Club – earlier this summer, setting a new gig attendance record for the venue. The band took to the stage at the north London enormodome on June 1 to play a hit-packed set which also featured audience antics, bizarre costumes and Billie Joe Armstrong firing a huge toilet paper gun into the crowd.

    The venue sold out all 60,000 tickets for the first time. Other acts including Coldplay and Bruce Springsteen have played sell-out shows at the Emirates Stadium in the past but their attendance figures were lower due to different staging and seating configurations.

    Green Day return to the UK later this month to headline Reading and Leeds festivals on August 23 and 24. They performed at Reading last year, delighting fans by playing a secret set on the NME/Radio 1 stage on Saturday morning.

I'm sorry but I'll buy the box a week before? With tré and quatro! I know and it's perfect guys!  It's all in Belgium, I didn't understand it.. And I buy a stay the night dvd too, I didn't know that there a dvd from was. So I watch it, and it was probably from the I heart radio festival in September 2012, when he was drunk. I didn't understand why there is a dvd from it? But other way I hope that Green Day this know 'cause I thought it's a fake dvd.

If the Stay the Night DVD was in a store, it should be legit.  If it was off EBay or something, it might be a bootleg. May have some value as a collectable one day. I have to admit, I think it is a shame that breakdown is available online because 10 minutes of disaster shouldn't define someone who has been so successful and important to the music industry.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't cuatro supposed to be exclusive for the box set sold last summer? I mean the one that could be pre-ordered, containing all three albuns and the dvd? I am pretty sure that at that time it was said to be exclusive. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

cyndi0372's picture

I don't recall that it was exclusive, but we who purchased the box set got it some time ago so it was early. I do know that the book format seems to be exclusive since the deluxe edition in the store that I saw came with a box to hold the set,but were regular size CD's.

Hey there Nuclear Girl. Look on the bright side. If you know a fellow idiot who may not have a copy of Tre you can use the extra copy as a gift.  Or maybe it will be available separately from the Green Day store in time. I still think these guys care about their fans more than most other bands.Look at the contests they have all the time and they sign autographs for their fans all the time.   You won't find many other bands so accessible.  However, as you say, you are entitled to your opinion.  Love and rage from Canada!!

I actually got excited for a second there, until I realised that i've already got it... Mike talked about the possibility of them releasing a longer version of Cuatro for the hard-core fans. Why not just release that one?

cyndi0372's picture

I am pretty sure they can be purchased separately.  It says "alongside" not "packaged with".  I bought the box set and Tre was shipped first, then Cuatro.  If anything, Green Day has kept prices reasonable and don't rip off their fans.  Look at people like Madonna who charge $200+ for a seat. And let's face it, who would you rather see?  No contest, right?

Yaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am really lucky because I didn't have the time to go to the shop and get ¡TRE! on time; but like 3 weeks ago I bought this pack... which means that it's already on sale!

I agree anyway with you guys, this is a way of getting more money from us, which is unfair and shit.

I can't understand why it's a pack with Cuatro and Tré. My conclusion is that: one fan who bought Uno, Dos and Tré separately has to buy Tré one more time if he/she wants to have Cuatro o_O?? If you want to have Cuatro, you have to have two Tré. Sincerely, I can't understand this. It's a way to earn more money, and a lot of people who has saved money for buy your CDs has to pay more. Sorry, but I think that this is a fucking shit. To be honest, I thought that you are different and that you think about your fans, but now I have discovered that this is not true. Thank you (ironically)

I've paid Uno, Dos and Trè 17 euros.. I've paid Cuatro and Trè (the pack) 15 euros.. So with this pack Cuatro costs less then the others CDs from the triology, and you can get another Trè "gratis". FOR ME this is NOT a way to earn more money.

Ok ok it's your own opinion, but I think that it's stupid that you have to have two Tré. At any rate, I was giving my opinion, sorry if you don't share my ideas, it's only what I think.

I could not agree with you more.  Although, I have to wonder if this is a decision of the record label and not the band.  Most Green Day fans are  young kids who either rely on their parents for money or work part time minimum wage jobs for a few extra bucks.  So why bleed these poors kids for every last cent they have?  Not to mention the mere renundance of having two copies of !Tre!.  Perhaps a free goodie with the DVD, like the postcards or poster.  But it's probably to late now.  I'm sure they are all packed up and ready to go. 

✗Nuclear Girl✗'s picture

I understand you: now it's too late. Well, we will have to buy the two things, Cuatro and Tré. Kisses from Spain! :)
