Green Day have announced world tour dates for their new album ‘Revolution Radio’, the group’s 12th studio album to date, set to be released on October 7th. Joined by special guests The Interrupters, Green Day will be coming to London in February 2017.

The world tour will kick off on September 20th at The Pageant in St. Louis with a series of similarly intimate club shows across North America. Then, in January 2017, they’ll start their European tour in Italy, landing in London for an exclusive performance at The 02 on 8th February 2017.

‘Revolution Radio’ is a potent 12-track blitz of angst-ridden anthems that unites Green Day’s stylistic approach with lyrical themes that address the complexities of modern-day existence. Musically, the album is raw, visceral, and fearless – solidifying the band’s reign as one of the leading voices in rock music.
According to Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong “Revolution Radio is a movement for lost souls to come together, dance together, sing together, and most of all, find each other. That’s what the spirit of Green Day has been about since day one.”

Since breaking through in 1994 with the ‘Dookie’ album, Green Day – completed by Mike Dirnt (bass) and Tré Cool (drums) – have become one of the world’s biggest bands with over 75 million worldwide sales. After a succession of hit albums, their 2004 rock opera ‘American Idiot’ reignited the band’s popularity for a younger generation.

Tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday 9th September and are available via axs.com or by calling 0844 856 0202

Thus it was at Sagardi in Shoreditch, where the ravenous foodie press was assembled earlier this week, to witness the butchery of, and subsequent cooking over a splendid barbecue grill, of a side of ox.
