Green Day - Green Day Plan 3,000 Show Tour

Green Day have are planing to play ''3,000'' shows in support of their new albums.

The 'Oh Love' band are releasing three records - '¡Uno!', '¡Dos!', '¡Tre!' - and joked that for such an ambitious project they will have to have a suitably sized tour to match.

Bassist Mike Dirnt told MTV: ''The full tour, we'll probably do about 3,000 shows.

''Right now, we're just warming up and getting ready to go out there, start swinging. The sky is the limit right now.

''We're just going to keep going. We want to play a lot of small clubs, a lot of theaters, a lot of arenas, and then who knows what else.''

Fontman Billie Joe Armstrong - who completes the band up with drummer Tre Cool - also said they always keep up with new music, and let it evolve the direction of their own sound.

He added: ''For us, it was always a slow Evolution through time.

''After our first records on [record label] Lookout!, and 'Dookie' all the way though '21st Century Breakdown', it was always about taking the right kind of risks.

''But, not trying to do something where you're pushing too hard to try to evolve into something that you're not. It takes time, and we always listen to younger bands; we really like a band called the Biters, and Best Coast. It's just a matter of letting yourself evolve.''

'¡Uno!', '¡Dos!' and '¡Tre!' will be released between September and January next year.
