Green Day Announce 2021 European Shows With Manic Street Preachers And Frank Carter
Earlier in the week, Green Day confirmed their return to the UK and Europe next year on the Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer. Now, the punk-rock behemoths have announced additional shows while they’re here – with select dates featuring Manic Street Preachers and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.
According to greenday.com/tour, Billie Joe Armstrong and the gang will seemingly be crossing the pond earlier than their Hella Mega tourmates, with their first European show scheduled to take place in Moscow on May 28 (support comes from Pornofilmy).
