    GREEN DAY TO RELEASE LIVE ALBUM — AWESOME AS FUCK — ON MARCH 22ND, 2011, ON REPRISE RECORDS


     

    CD PLUS BONUS DVD CAPTURES EXPLOSIVE ENERGY OF BAND’S WORLD TOUR IN SUPPORT OF GRAMMY® AWARD-WINNING ALBUM 21ST CENTURY BREAKDOWN


    January 12, 2011 — Burbank, CA — Multi-platinum rock band Green Day will release a brand-new live album, entitled Awesome As Fuck, on March 22nd,
    2011, on Reprise Records. The set, which includes a CD plus bonus DVD,
    features explosive performances captured during the band’s 2009-2010
    World Tour in support of their Grammy® Award-winning album 21st Century Breakdown. Watch a trailer introducing Awesome As Fuck here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2bPnI-jwGg.



    Green Day recorded every show on the 21st Century Breakdown
    tour. When it concluded, the band members, singer-guitarist Billie Joe
    Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre Cool, sifted through
    the audio to deliver the best performances from their shows around the
    world.  An iTunes Exclusive edition of the audio portion will feature
    two bonus tracks. The footage on the bonus DVD was shot at the band’s
    show in Tokyo, Japan. The package includes Green Day’s biggest hits and
    fan favorites, including “21 Guns,” “American Idiot,” “When I Come
    Around,” and “Good Riddance.” See below for full track-listing.



    Critics raved about the 21st Century Breakdown
    tour, which launched in North America in July of 2009. “As if
    releasing a wave of energy that had been building up during their
    four-year hiatus from touring, Green Day poured all their heart and
    soul into a powerhouse set,” said Rolling Stone, while Spin noted that “the band's relationship with its audience is disarmingly real.”



    Released by Reprise Records on May 15th, 2009, 21st Century Breakdown debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard
    Top 200 chart, won a 2009 Grammy Award for “Best Rock Album,” and has
    sold more than 3.5 million copies worldwide. It has spawned the hit
    singles “Know Your Enemy,” which has been certified gold, and the
    platinum-selling “21 Guns,” whose video won three 2009 MTV Video Music
    Awards, including “Best Rock Video.”
