Green Day announce big summer shows for 2010
Group will play Manchester LCCG and Wembley Stadium
Ben Parkinson - 02 November 2009
The pop-punk trio will play Manchester Lancashire County Cricket Ground (June 16) and Wembley
Stadium (19) next June, fuelling rumours that they’re for a festival return in 2010 as well.
Download Festival 2010 looks to be the most likely destination for the ‘Dookie’ band, but following Foo Fighters' appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival a few years ago, Green Day could also be a target for John Giddings and Co as well.
Speaking to NME, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said, "It's going to be great because Wembley has a long tradition of rock concerts with the likes of U2, Foo Fighters and Muse playing here in the past and we're just happy to be part of that.
"Playing Wembley Stadium is kind one of those moments in your career when you just go holy shit!"
Tickets for both concerts go on sale at 9am on Friday 6 November.
