Green Day To Donate Concert Proceeds To Bay Area Hospital

Green Day will donate proceeds from its hometown concert in Oakland, California on April 29 to a local hospital that has played a role in the lives of all three of the band’s members.

The Oakland Arena performance will benefit Children’s Hospital Oakland, the oldest and largest pediatric medical facility in Northern California, according to a band spokesperson.

“Children’s hospital is a place all three of us have been in and out of as kids, and we are sure our kids will too,” Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong says. “It makes sense for our families and others in the East Bay to give something back for all they’ve given the community.”

The show is part of the Pop Disaster tour with co-headliners Blink 182 and opening act Jimmy Eat World. The trek kicks off April 17 in Bakersfield, California.
