Green Day Plays Surprise Club Show, Reveal New Music & Tour Details
Green Day playing a surprise club show days before headlining a major festival is already news. However, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band upped the ante with some additional news on top of that.
The band shared via social media, “Holy s–ttttttt! We just played ‘Dookie’ in full, thank you for that Las Vegas. AND our new single ‘The American Dream Is Killing Me’ comes out October 24th! Set those wake up calls, ya hear??”
They added, “They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but couldn’t let this stay…get ready ya zombies!!!” Even the official Las Vegas tourism account replied, “What an incredible night!” (The setlist from the show is below.)
As previously reported, Green Day shared a snippet of their new single and its accompanying music video earlier this week. The grizzly video shows zombies making a feast out of some unfortunate humans. This happens while an upbeat melody plays in the background. Lyrics to the song sing, ” The American dream is killing me/The American dream is killing me/When it’s all double-talk of insanity…” before cutting out.
Per Loudwire, Billie Joe Armstrong also unveiled details about the band’s stadium tour planned for 2024. While dates haven’t been revealed yet, the bands Green Day is bringing out with them include Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid and the Linda Lindas.
Green Day is headlining the When We Were Young festival taking place this weekend in Las Vegas along with blink-182.
