All Press Releases for May 05, 2010 - Catch Green Day Live in Munich

Green Day will perform an open-air concert at Munich's Olympia Reitanlage venue in June.

    MUNICH, GERMANY, May 05, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- US punk rock legends Green Day are heading to Munich as part of their European Tour this summer.

The band will be playing at the Olympia Reitanlage on June 11th, giving people staying in Munich hotels an opportunity to experience their thrilling live performance at an open-air venue.

Formed in the late 1980s, Green Day have been credited with spearheading the punk revival in the US through albums such as 1994's Dookie, which was their major label debut and first mainstream success.

The Californian trio - Billy Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool - have enjoyed another burst in popularity in recent years following the release of American Idiot in 2004.

Styled as a "rock opera", this album introduced the band to a younger generation of fans and spawned radio hits such as the title track and Boulevard of Broken Dreams.

Green Day released their eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown, in May last year.

Fans attending the Munich concert can expect to hear the best tracks from the latest record, as well as an array of classic songs such as Basket Case, Brain Stew/Jaded, When I Come Around, Minority and Good Riddance (Time of Your Life).

Tickets for the event, which will get underway at 16:30 local time, are currently priced at EUR65.50 (GBP56.60).

Proof of Green Day's enduring popularity can currently be found in the US, where a musical production based on the American Idiot album recently opened on Broadway.

Taking in $777,860 (GBP506,000) during its first week, the show has been hailed as another triumph for the band and could expose their music to a whole new audience.

The group are set to release an album featuring the cast of the production next month.

If you're heading to the Green Day concert this year, we strongly advise that you book your hotels Munchen as soon as possible, given the huge popularity of the event.
