GREEN DAY Announce 2013 Tour Dates!
In 2009, Green Day released 21st Century Breakdown, which won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. It spawned two hit singles: the gold "Know Your Enemy," which was the first song ever to top Billboard's Rock, Alternative, and Mainstream Rock charts simultaneously, and the double-platinum "21 Guns," which earned them three 2009 MTV Video Music Awards including Best Rock Video. Green Day also took home an American Music Award for Favorite Alternative Rock Music Artist. Later that year, Green Day collaborated with Tony Award winning director of Spring Awakening, Michael Mayer, for the stage musical of American Idiot. The play bowed at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in September 2009 and set attendance records during its limited engagement.
The play went on to Broadway and ran for a year at the St. James Theatre and won two Tony Awards. It is currently touring the United Kingdom and Ireland before returning to the United States in early 2013. Green Day's highly anticipated album Green Day ¡Uno!, the first in a trilogy of new releases, was released on September 25, 2012, followed by Green Day ¡Dos! on November 13th and Green Day ¡Tré! on December 11th.
