Rock band Green Day to play Sheffield Arena this summer

Punk rock band ‘Green Day’ are set to play Sheffield Arena on 3rd July with special guests Rancid. Tickets will go on general sale at 9am on sale from today.

Since breaking through in 1994 with the ‘Dookie’ album, Green Day – completed by Mike Dirnt (bass) and Tré Cool (drums) – have become one of the world’s biggest bands with over 75 million worldwide sales. After a succession of hit albums, their 2004 rock opera ‘American Idiot’ reignited the band’s popularity with a younger generation.

Green Day have won five Grammy Awards: Best Alternative Album for ‘Dookie’, Best Rock Album for ‘American Idiot’, Record of the Year for ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams’, Best Rock Album for the second time for ‘21st Century Breakdown’ and Best Musical Show Album for ‘American Idiot: The Original Broadway Cast Recording’. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015 in what was their first year of eligibility for induction.
