GREEN DAY announce O2 Brixton Academy show on August 21st ahead of Reading and Leeds Festivals

GREEN DAY

ANNOUNCE INTIMATE WARM-UP SHOW AT LONDON’S O2 ACADEMY BRIXTON ON AUGUST 21ST AHEAD OF HEADLINE SETS AT THE READING AND LEEDS FESTIVALS


New ‘¡Cuatro!’ documentary released as a CD/DVD set with the ‘¡Tré!’ album on August 26th


Green Day will prepare for their major headline sets at this summer’s Reading and Leeds Festivals by playing a very intimate warm-up show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on August 21st. The Brixton gig represents the first show that the band have played in the UK since they set a gig attendance record at London’s Emirates Stadium  by selling all 60,000 of the venue’s tickets for the first time.

Tickets for the show go on sale from 9am on Wednesday August 14th, priced at £39.50. They’re available from www.gigsandtours.com / www.ticketmaster.co.uk / www.ticketweb.co.uk and buyers are limited to a maximum of four tickets each.

Once again proving Green Day’s enduring popularity, the Emirates show featured songs spanning their entire career from ‘Going to Pasalacqua’ which featured on their debut album ‘39/Smooth’ right up to selections from this year’s ‘¡Tré!’ set – along the way featuring such defining Green Day classics as ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams’, ‘Welcome To Paradise’, ‘American Idiot’ and ‘Basket Case’.

The long-awaited ‘¡Cuatro!’ documentary will be released as a CD/DVD on August 26th and will be packaged with the ‘¡Tré!’ album that was released earlier this year. The film pulls back the curtain and takes fans inside the world of Green Day, from the various spontaneous live performances in select cities across the U.S. to the chronicling of their creative process while conceptualising and recording their recent trilogy of albums – ‘¡Uno!’, ‘¡Dos!’ and ‘¡Tré!’.

The trailer for the movie can be seen at: http://youtu.be/8oSJs25fg04.

“Over the last year while we were recording our trilogy, we posted multiple clips every week so fans can see parts of the recording process of ¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré!,” said bassist Mike Dirnt. “¡Cuatro! brings our fans one step closer by giving them even more access and revealing what it was like for us to make these records.”

The film was directed by Tim Wheeler and produced by Tim Lynch for Farm League. The duo’s credits include previous music films for The White Stripes and Oasis.
