By Alex HudsonBest Coast have earned plenty of hype in the last few years, and all of the California pop group's hard work is starting to pay off. Soon, songwriter Bethany Cosentino and company will have a chance to play in front of some of their largest audiences to date, as they will open for Green Day on the pop punkers' upcoming North American tour.
The month-long outing, which lasts from January to February, will see Best Coast opening up for the long-running group in arenas throughout the U.S. The trip also includes two Canadian stops: Quebec City on January 27 and Toronto on January 29.
Prior to the Green Day tour, Best Coast will spend the next few weeks playing festivals in Europe, the U.S. and South America. See the full schedule below.
