Green Day are coming to Manchester for the first time in seven years.

Green Day are bringing their ‘Saviors’ tour to Manchester this month as they come to town for the first time since 2017. The three-piece from California are out on the road with new tracks, but also for two special anniversaries. 

Green Day will play at Emirates Old Trafford on Friday June 21. This will be one of only four UK dates, which includes a headline slot at the Isle of Wight festival. The Manchester date will also be Green Day’s first in the UK before heading to Glasgow, London, the Isle of Wight and then over to Ireland. Their Manchester gig comes after two performances from Foo Fighters at the home of Lancashire Cricket.

Fans can expect to hear songs from the new album ‘Saviors’ which was released earlier this year. However, most of the setlist will pick itself after the band announced two albums will be played in full. 

Dookie (1994) and American Idiot (2004) celebrate big anniversaries this year, and in tribute Green Day will play every track from the two albums. This means classics such as ‘Jesus of Suburbia’ and ‘Holiday’ are guaranteed to be played.
