April 21, 2009 drainu182 1

Green Day will be playing the season finale of Saturday Night Live on May 16th (hosted by Will Ferrell). This makes it even more likely that the band will be playing Bowery Ballroom in NYC two nights later as SNL is broadcast live from New York (wow that unintentionally sounded like the cheesy opening on the show).

Green Day also announced yesterday a full summer tour starting July 3rd in Seattle, WA and be wrapping up on August 26th with two shows in Los Angeles. The tour will be in support of “21st Century Breakdown” (May 15th Reprise Records), their first album in over four years. Check out the dates inside.

On tonight’s 1000th episode of Last Call with Carson Daly, Daly was reflecting on one of his favorite moments when his show was the only one that would let Green Day perform “Jesus of Suburbia” in full on TV. Daly mentioned that the band would be performing next on Last Call in June playing for a full week.

Legendary producer/Garbage drummer (I probably should’ve said drummer in Garbage or percussion dude in Garbage?) Butch Vig will be producing the new Green Day album. This will be the first new Green Day album since 2004’s American Idiot. It should be noted that their previous album Warning came out in 2000.
