Green Day Announce Stadium Shows

Green Day have announced three European stadium shows next summer.

The '21 Guns' rockers will play at Manchester Lancashire Cricket Ground on June 16th and Wembley Stadium on June 19th in the UK, before heading to play at Paris Parc Des Princes in France on June 26th.

Lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong told NME.com: "Playing Wembley Stadium is kind of one of those moments in your career when you just go 'holy s**t!'"

"It's going to be great because Wembley has a long tradition of rock concerts with the likes of U2, Foo Fighters and Muse playing here in the past and we're just happy to be part of that. It'll be great to play in Manchester too."

Tickets for all concerts go on sale on November 6th at 9am.

The announcement fuels rumours the band will also play a number of festivals next summer.

The UK shows will be the first the group have played since 2005, when they played two-nights at Milton Keynes National Bowl, later documented in live album 'Bullet In A Bible'.

Green Day are presently on a world tour in support of their latest album '21st Century Breakdown'.
