Punk rockers Green Day will kick off their Australian tour in Perth next April.

Green Day last visited our shores in 2014 for a series of festival dates.  Their return in 2017 will see the popular rockers undertake their first headline tour since the sell out 2009 21st Century Breakdown tour.

The band’s April and May Australian tour will see them  showcasing their new album Revolution Radio. The album is out today and the first single Bang Bang has clocked over 1.5 million views in just a week.

The band’s eleventh album has received very positive reviews ahead of its release. Music bible Rolling Stone described the album as being as good as their ’90s classics.

In 1995 frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told The Advocate that he identified as bisexual. In a lter interview he said the song Coming Clean from the band’s Dookie album touched on his feelings about sexuality. 

The Californian band first got together thirty years ago. They got the attention of indie radio stations around the world with their second album Kerplunk in 1992 and scored their major break through in 1994 with Dookie.

The band’s songs Good Riddance (Time of Your Life), American Idiot, When I Come Around and Warning have been fan favourites. In 2006 Green Day teamed up with U2 to cover the Skids punk classic The Saints Are Coming.  

In 2010 the bands music was taken to the stage when it was used as the basis for the musical American Idiot.
