Green Day unveil stadium date
Date Posted: 31/08/12
Green Day have revealed a single stadium date following the success of their surprise set at this year's Reading Festival.
Fans of the pop-punk legends should book London hotels close to the Arsenal FC's Emirates Stadium on Saturday, June 1st to attend the one-off show.
It marks their first stadium show in the capital since their performance at Wembley in the summer of 2010.
Green Day are to release their new album ¡Uno! On Monday, September 24th, which is set to be the first in a trio of records that also includes ¡Dos! (Monday, November 12th) and ¡Tré! (Monday, January 14th).
The band released Kill the DJ, the lead single off ¡Uno! on Wednesday, August 15th, a song that takes more influence from dance music and has been compared to The Clash albums Sandinista! and Combat Rock.
Green Day's surprise 13-song set at Reading Festival filled the Radio 1/NME Tent to the brim last weekend. They had been rumoured to play the entirety of their classic 1994 album Dookie, but chose instead to play a mixture of songs from throughout their career.
