Green Day Have Announced A One-Off European Show Next Month

Ahead of next year’s huge Hella Mega Tour, Green Day have announced they’ll be playing a show in Europe next month.

While the epic Hella Mega Tour still feels like forever away yet, Green Day aren’t keeping European fans waiting too long for their return: the band have just announced a one-off show in Seville next month.

As part of the 2019 MTV Europe Music Awards, the trio will be heading to Spain on November 2 for MTV World Stage Seville, with tickets going on general sale this coming Thursday (October 17) at 11am CET via this link. If you can’t make it, part of the performance will be aired the following day during the 2019 MTV EMAs. Awesome.

The gig will be the first since Green Day’s brilliant secret show in Los Angeles with Fall Out Boy and Weezer on September 10 at the Whisky-A-Go-Go, in which they played an epic 12-song set – including their new album’s title-track, Father Of All…, twice in a row.

Talking to Kerrang! about their new music recently, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong revealed that song names were a huge part of the creative process when it came to making Father Of All… (full name: Father Of All Mother Fuckers); in fact, many of his lyrics were based on playful titles that he’d jotted down in the notes on his phone.

“Song titles were really big on this one,” Billie Joe explained. “We have one song called The Art Of The Deal With The Devil – Trump wrote a book called The Art Of The Deal, back in the ’80s or something. It was just these titles that make you laugh. That kind of stuff would lead into lyrics. It’s like a puzzle, just trying to put it together.”

As for why the album is called Father Of All Mother Fuckers?

“Um…” the frontman pondered with a grin. “It’s just a badass title! I think it was Kerry King from Slayer – they have an album called God Hates Us All, and someone asked, ‘Do you really think God hates us all?’ And he goes, ‘I don’t know! It’s just a badass title!’ (Laughs) As soon as the title came up, I was like, ‘Oh man, this is good.’”
