Tour announcements are exciting for fans enough as it is, but when you see that your favorite band is opting to play small clubs instead of the usual massive arenas, that excitement is turned up a couple of notches. That’s exactly what’s happening with Green Day, as the band is hitting the road this fall to play in smaller venues in support of their upcoming album, Revolution Radio.
Nobody would expect a band of Green Day’s caliber to be playing venues such as New York City’s Webster Hall, which has a capacity of 1,500, or Detroit, Michigan’s The Fillmore, which sports a capacity of 3,000, but they’ll be making it happen. The tour is going to start on September 20th in St. Louis and will go until October 20th, so it isn’t going to be the longest tour in the world, but the limited amount of space in the venues will surely provide an intimate experience for all. To add to the magnitude of just how crazy it is that Green Day is doing this, they’ll be heading back on the road a couple of months later to tour in arenas all around Europe.
Green Day obviously isn’t the first large band to play some smaller shows like this, but the fact that it’s going to be in support of the new album makes the tour incredibly cool. A full list of the dates can be found on their website, and tickets will go on sale to the general public on September 9th at 9 a.m.
Revolution Radio, the band’s 12th studio album, will be released on October 7th.
