‘21st Century Breakdown’ debuted at the top of the album charts on both sides of the Atlantic when it was released earlier this year. The album’s title track will be released as a single on December 7th.

“The fact that 20,000 people holler every word of American Idiot’s rejection of a “redneck agenda” is both exhilarating and encouraging… It’s all perfectly pitched and unexpectedly fantastic” – The Guardian, 23/10/09, London O2

“The beauty about this gang of gracefully grown-up punks is how they have mastered the art of making the orchestrated seem improvised and how they make every voice in the room feel like it’s the most important” – Kerrang!, 20/10/09, Belfast Odyssey Arena

“Green Day’s greatest accomplishment is the manner in which they’ve constructed a supremely cohesive whole out of such seemingly disparate parts. The characters, themes and motifs that recur throughout 21st Century Breakdown are marshalled into an engrossing narrative that recalls both Bruce Springsteen and novelist Chuck Palahniuk” – Observer Music Monthly review of the ‘21st Century Breakdown’ album

Green Day’s recent sold-out tour wowed audiences with the band’s inimitable combination of frenzied punk energy, theatrical flourishes and euphoric crowd participation. Reiterating their status as one of the world’s most electrifying live bands, the shows featured a huge array of Green Day’s hits including ‘Basket Case’, ‘Longview’, ‘Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)’, ‘Minority’, ‘American Idiot’, ‘Wake Me Up When September Ends’, ‘Know Your Enemy’ and ’21 Guns.’
