Green Day are set to headline the Voodoo Music Experience
festival in New Orleans later this year.
The band are currently working on their trio of albums '¡Uno!
¡Dos! ¡Tré!', which are due out across the end of this year and
will headline the three-day festival as part of the release
'¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré!' will be released in three stages, with the
first album coming out in September, the second in November and
third and final album on January 12 2013. Voodoo Music Experience
takes place from October 26 - 28 and so comes after the release of
'¡Uno!' and before '¡Dos!' comes out. Green Day are the only band
confirmed for the festival so far.
Green Day will also play headline shows at Japan's Summer Sonic
festival and France's Rock En Seine in August and a headline slot
at I-Day festival in Bologna, Italy on September 2 as well as three
shows in Germany in late August.
Although the band currently have no UK dates scheduled, their
American Idiot musical will tour later this year. The show will hit
the UK for three months, ending with a two-week run at London's HMV
Hammersmith Apollo in December.
