California alternative pop-punk rockers Green Day have announced a 27-date tour in 2024 celebrating the 30th anniversary of their breakthrough album Dookie and the 20th anniversary of American Idiot. The tour will kick off in July in Washington, D.C. and stop in Charlotte on August 26 at PNC Music Pavilion. The multiple Grammy Award-winning band, consisting of singer-songwriter and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, drummer Tré Cool, and bassist Mike Dirnt will also release their fourteenth album, Saviors, in January.
Green Day will be supported by teenage punk rockers The Linda Lindas, who will be performing in Charlotte for the first time following a whirlwind couple of years since the release of their 2021 viral hit “Racist, Sexist Boy.” Signing to the famed punk rock label Epitaph in 2021, the band released their debut album, Growing up, in April of 2022, touring with Paramore, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Japanese Breakfast, performing at Lollapalooza and Boston Calling over the summer.
This will be the first time Green Day will be in Charlotte since 2005’s American Idiot World Tour, and they’ll also be joined by Rancid in the Queen City and The Smashing Pumpkins on select tour dates. Pre-sale will begin Thursday, November 9 at 10 a.m. (code: Backstage) and tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, November 11 at 10 a.m.
