As expected, Green Day will be hitting the road to support its new album, Revolution Radio, which comes out October 7.
The group has announced a 12-date U.S. tour, kicking off September 20 in St. Louis and wrapping October 20 in Berkeley, Calif. It then heads to Europe in January, staring January 10 in Turin, Italy, with 19 shows in nine countries. A pre-sale for Green Day's Idiot Nation fan club begins at 9 a.m. Wednesday (September 7), with a general on-sale at 9 a.m. Friday (September 9).
Revolution Radio is Green Day's first studio album since "!Tre!" in 2012; It's been preceded by the single "Bang Bang."
