The album turned 25 earlier this year
The legendary pop punks are due to perform a one-off, small-venue show at Madrid’s La Riviera on Wednesday (October 30). Ahead of the concert, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has been posting hints on social media that the band will play their 1994 album in full.
One of Armstrong’s recent Instagram story posts depicts the album’s front cover with the Spanish flag imposed over it.
Additionally, in response to a Green Day fan account on Instagram asking whether the Californian trio would be up for playing ‘Dookie’ in its entirety, Armstrong replied with a winky face emoji.
They are now warming up for their ‘Hella Mega’ UK, European and US joint tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer and also play in Seville, Spain as part of the MTV Europe Music Awards on November 3.
It comes as the band prepares to release their thirteenth studio album ‘Father of All Motherfuckers’, released in February 2020. “We made a new record and we’re really excited, it’s only 26 minutes long, so it’s the shortest record we’ve made, I think since ‘Dookie’ or ‘Insomnia’,” said Armstrong of the new album.
Green Day’s full upcoming Hella Mega UK tour dates with Weezer and Fall Out Boy are:
24 – Glasgow, Bellahouston Park
26 – London, London Stadium
27 – Huddersfield, The John Smith’s Stadium
29 – Dublin, RDS Arena
