Green Day Announce More Canadian Shows For Spring

Published: 2005-02-07
Thanks to the massive success of their latest album "American Idiot", Green Day are one of the hottest acts on the planet right now. The trio have been touring the record since last year, and they're not about to get off the road just yet. This March, Green Day will wrap up the Japan portion of their world tour, and then head back home for a second North American leg.

In addition to a performance at the 47th Annual Grammy Awards (February 13th; check your local listing), Billie Joe Armstrong and company will make a return to the Great White North as it begins to thaw out. The tour kicks off April 15th in Miami, and will wrap up with three Canadian shows - the last being in Calgary on May 20th. Green Day will visit a total of five Canadian stadiums, all in cities they didn't get a chance to visit last fall.

Not only will Green Day be performing at the Grammys, but they're up for six awards, thanks to the politically-charged "American Idiot". The California trio is nominated for "Record of the Year", "Album of the Year", and "Best Rock Song", among others.

Green Day's upcoming Canadian gigs:

May 2 Quebec, QC - Colisee Pepsi Centre
May 4 London, ON - John Labatt Centre
May 16 Winnipeg, MB - MTS Center
May 19 Edmonton, AB - Rexall Place
May 20 Calgary, AB - Saddledome
