The American punk gods of Green Day are heading to Ireland this fall.
The band has announced an arena tour of Ireland and Britain to promote their new album, “21st Century Breakdown,” which will be released worldwide on Friday, May 15.
The band is already set to kick off their tour in Berlin on May 7, but now the trio has scheduled 10 concert dates in October, including shows in Dublin and Belfast.
They’ll also play gigs for fans in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and Glasgow.
The tour marks the band’s first full Ireland/Britain tour since 2005.
“21st Century Breakdown” is Billie Joe Armstrong and the boys’ eighth studio album, their first since their smash record “American Idiot,” which sold over 12 million copies.
Their newest album is divided into three acts: “Heroes and Cons,” “Charlatans and Saints” and “Horseshoes and Handgrenades,” and follows a young couple, Christian and Gloria, as they navigate through the century so far.
Tickets for the Ireland/Britain tour go on sale this Friday, May 1 at 10 a.m. BST (5 a.m. EST). They are priced at around €40 ($50).
Their comeback single “Know Your Enemy” is out now.
