The massive north London venue sells out all 60,000 tickets for the first time
Green Day have set a new gig attendance record at London's Emirates Stadium.
The band took to the stage at the north London enormodome on Saturday night (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.
Now it's been revealed that 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 are currently on tour in Europe but will return to the UK in August to headline the Reading and Leeds festivals on August 23 and 24. They last performed at Reading last year (2012) when they delighted fans by playing a secret set on the NME/Radio 1 stage on Saturday morning.
Green Day made their live comeback at South By Southwest in March (2013). They had been previously cancelled a series of live dates scheduled for the end of 2012 and start of 2013 following Armstrong's onstage breakdown in September 2012 and subsequent stint in rehab.

Thing Named After Green Day: Macrocarpaea dies-viridis – a species of night-blooming flowers within the Macrocarpaea genus named after Billie Joe and co.
From what our research has told us, the flower named after Green Day looks more like a dried-up weed. However, when its in a nocturnal bloom, the particular type of Macrocarpaea named after the punk-rock trio probably looks similar to the picture above (which is actually one of its sister species).
According to Rolling Stone, “Harvard researchers bestowed the name “dies-viridis” (Latin for “green day”) upon their newly minted species of night-blooming flower after listening to the band while driving throughout Ecuador on their research trips.”
We wonder which Green Day tracks made it onto their road trip playlist… we’d put money on ‘Welcome to Paradise.’
