Green Day announce three more European summer shows

California punks line up three German gigs for later this year

Green Day have announced three more European headline shows for later this year.

The band, who are currently in the studio recording the follow-up to 2009’s ’21st Century Breakdown’, will play three shows in Germany in late August.

The band will first play Munchengladbach’s Hockey Park on August 29, before moving on to Berlin’s Wuhkheide on August 30. They then play Rock Am See festival in Konstanz on August 31.

The new dates mean the California punks have a total of seven summer shows lined up after they previously announced headline slots at Japan’s Summer Sonic festival, Italy’s I-Day festival in Bologna and France’s Rock En Seine event.

The band have previously said that their new ninth studio album will move away from the concepts of their last two records ‘American Idiot’ and ’21st Century Breakdown’ and be more straightforward.

Green Day’s American Idiot musical will tour the UK later this year. The musical, which is currently touring North America, begins a three-month UK in September and finishes in late December with a two-week run at London’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo.
