Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, California, Green Day is one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, with more than 70 million records sold worldwide and 10 billion cumulative audio/visual streams. The five-time Grammy Award-winning Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees released their breakout album “Dookie” in 1994, which sold more than 10 million and achieved diamond status. It is widely credited with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock, catapulting a career-long run of No. 1 hit singles. Entertainment Weekly calls Green Day “the most influential band of their generation,” while Rolling Stone attests, “Green Day have inspired more young bands to start than any act this side of KISS, and that doesn’t seem to be changing.”
In 2004, Green Day released the rock opera “American Idiot,” which captured the nation’s attention, selling more than seven million copies in the U.S. alone, taking home the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. Mojo declared “It’s exhilarating stuff, the kind of record that sets new parameters as to what is possible from a punk rock ‘n’ roll band in the 21st century.” In 2010, a stage adaptation of “American Idiot” debuted on Broadway to critical and commercial acclaim.
Released in 2020, Green Day’s 13th studio album “Father Of All…” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Album Sales Chart and No. 1 in both the U.K. and Australia. Pitchfork declared, “Green Day’s most fetching and youthful songs in ages. The trio sounds reinvigorated, more like hungry newcomers staking their claim.”
In July 2021, Green Day embarked on “The Hella Mega Tour” (featuring Fall Out Boy and Weezer). The U.S. leg included 20 sold-out stadium gigs – including renowned venues like Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Boston’s Fenway Park and Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium – and a total attendance of more than 630,000 fans. The tour was nominated for two 2022 Billboard Music Awards (Top Tour and Top Rock Tour) and was nominated for both Major Tour of the Year and Best Rock Tour at the Pollstar Awards in 2021.
