Green Day will perform at Cleveland’s House of Blues on April 16, ahead of its induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two days later. Tickets go on sale today (Apr. 3) via the band’s official website.
The one-off show will be Green Day’s first live outing since performing two gigs at South By Southwest festival March last year under the band’s long-running side project alias Foxboro Hot Tubs. The punk trio had previously spent much of 2013 touring its Uno!, Dos! And Tre! trilogy of albums.
Green Day is the 48th act to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Ringo Starr, Lou Reed, Bill Withers, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble among this year’s other inductees.
Speaking to Billboard at this year’s South by Southwest, Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt said he was “super excited and super nervous, too” about the group’s upcoming induction.
He also revealed guitarist Jason White was doing well in his battle with tonsil cancer and that Green Day had recently regrouped for its first band practice in some while, stating: “Everyone’s healthy and we’re gearing up to kick ass again.”
It is not known if the band will premiere new material at the House of Blues show, which is supported by Jesse Malin.
