Published Sep 02, 2016Green Day are plotting their return to the airwaves, prefacing their upcoming Revolution Radio LP with recent single "Bang Bang." Now, it looks like Toronto fans of the long-running pop-punk trio will be getting a chance to see them live.
Green Day will perform at the World Cup of Hockey Fan Village in Toronto's Distillery District on September 23. The concert will take place in conjunction with a celebration honouring Canadian Olympians, which makes sense since Green Day clearly think certain Americans are stupid.
Tickets for the event go on sale next Thursday (September 8) at 10 a.m. local time, and will run you $25. Find full information here.
Musical commitments aren't the only gigs frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has on the go, though, as he'll soon be showing up on the big screen in a movie called Ordinary World. The film was previously announced under the title Geezer, but in addition to the name change the motion picture now has a proper release date, too. Following its initial premiere at Tribeca in April, Ordinary World will hit theatres on October 14.
As previously reported, the film finds Armstrong "playing" an aging rocker whose married middle-age family life and punk rock past clash at his 40th birthday party. The flick also stars Fred Armisen, Judy Greer, Selma Blair, Dallas Roberts, Chris Messina and Brian Baumgartner.
Revolution Radio drops on October 7, while Ordinary World will also be arriving next month. Contrary to popular belief, it looks like Green Day won't be spending the rest of this month fast asleep.
UPDATE (9/6, 9:15 a.m. EDT): Green Day have announced a fall North American tour, as well as European dates in the new year. The previously reported Toronto show on September 23 remains the band's only Canadian date. See the group's full itinerary here.
