Green Day announce intimate warm-up show at Brixton Academy
Story by Jack Foley
GREEN Day will prepare for their major headline sets at this summer’s Reading and Leeds Festivals by playing a very intimate warm-up show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on August 21, 2013.
The Brixton gig represents the first show that the band have played in the UK since they set a gig attendance record at London’s Emirates Stadium by selling all 60,000 of the venue’s tickets for the first time.
Tickets for the show go on sale from 9am on Wednesday, August 14, priced at £39.50. They are limited to a maximum of four tickets each.
In addition, Green Day’s long-awaited ¡Cuatro! documentary will be released as a CD/DVD on August 26 and will be packaged with the ¡Tré! album that was released earlier this year.
The film pulls back the curtain and takes fans inside the world of Green Day, from the various spontaneous live performances in select cities across the U.S. to the chronicling of their creative process while conceptualising and recording their recent trilogy of albums – ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré!.
