Burbank, CA – Multi-platinum, Grammy® Award-winning rock group Green Day will embark on a two-month North American tour, kicking off in Chicago on August 10th.

The band, with Jimmy Eat World in the support slot, will be playing arenas and stadiums across the continent.

Tickets for most of the shows will go on sale May 14th with the exception of Washington, DC, and Minneapolis, MN, which will go on sale May 13th, and Boston, MA, which will go on sale 5/21.

East Rutherford, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago are already on sale.

Following the footsteps of previous singles “American Idiot” and “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams,” “Holiday” has now reached the peak position on the Modern Rock chart, making it the third single from “American Idiot” to reach Number One.

“Boulevard Of Broken Dreams” created radio history when it climbed to Number One at six radio formats simultaneously.

Green Day’s “American Idiot” was released on September 21, 2004, and debuted at Number One on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and Number One in several countries around the world.

Weeks later, the album returned to the Number One chart position in the U.S. and many of the same countries across the globe.

“American Idiot” won the Grammy® Award for Best Rock Album in February of this year, and the band has received extensive media attention in both the alternative and mainstream press, gracing the covers of Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Spin, Alternative Press, Entertainment Weekly’s Listen To This, Bass Player, Drum and Guitar World.

Green Day was touted as Yahoo! Music’s Artist of The Month at release time, and the band recorded Sessions@AOL this past fall, which aired extensively on Fuse.

In addition, Green Day has had multiple appearances on Fuse’s 100% and Daily Download.
