SINGAPORE – The American pillars of pop-punk Green Day will return to Singapore to perform at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on March 8, 2020.
The trio, best known for hits such as Basket Case (1994), Boulevard Of Broken Dreams (2004) and 21 Guns (2009), last performed to a full house at the same venue in 2010.
Formed in 1986, the band, made up of singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool, has grown from the underground punk scene to one of the most successful American rock bands of the past two decades. .
They have won several musical awards, including five Grammy Awards. Their 1994 commercial breakthrough, Dookie, won the award for Best Alternative Musical Performance in 1995, while their 2004 hit album American Idiot won the award for Best Rock Album in 2004.
A theater adaptation of American Idiot on Broadway won two Tony Awards in 2010 and a Grammy in 2011.
In 2015, the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The group released 12 albums, including the first 39 / Smooth in 1990 and their most recent, Revolution Radio, in 2016.
On September 10, they released their new single Father Of All …, the title track of their upcoming 13th album, slated for February 2020.
The Singapore Show is the start of a world tour that also includes other Asian cities such as Bangkok, Manila and Hong Kong.
In June 2020, the group will embark on a joint tour across the United States and Europe, the Hella Mega Tour, with two other major American rock groups, Weezer and Fall Out Boy.
