Pop-punk giants Green Day will be returning to the UK as part of the British Summer Time concert in Hyde Park. The announcement comes after the band have released their twelfth album ‘Revolution Radio’ in October of last year, and a show this huge is definitely a fitting celebration for the trio.
The show takes place on two weekends between the 30th of June and the 9th of July, with Green Day headlining on Saturday the 1st of July.

Speaking of the upcoming concert vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong says “London in the summer, us and tens of thousands of fans having the biggest party in one of the world’s most legendary venues. We have the best year to look forward to and this has just made it extra special.”
Currently touring to support ‘Revolution Radio’, the band are finishing off a UK arena tour at London’s iconic O2 Arena in February where they’ll be playing a collection of songs from their extensive back catalogue, including some tracks from their fourth studio album ‘Insomniac’ that haven’t been played live for decades.
Billed as support for the band are punk-rockers ‘Rancid’ who were a part of the same punk-rock music revival Green Day were involved in during the mid-90s. As well as all this, Gogol Bordello will be bringing their “gypsy punk” music from New York, The Hives will be bringing their garage rock music over from Sweden and The Living End are travelling from Australia to play their rock ‘n’ roll music to warm up the crowd for Green Day.
Rounding out the line up are a new generation of indie-rockers: Beach Slang, SWMRS, Sunflower Bean and Public Access TV.
It’s going to be a stunning show with all of those bands billed on the line-up, so ensure you pick up your tickets now to make sure you’re there in summer!
