Green Day Unveils Extensive 2024 Stadium Tour and Glastonbury Festival 2024 update

Green Day, the legendary American rock band, has announced an extensive stadium tour named “The Saviors”, set to span five months. This exciting tour is scheduled to begin its North American leg at Nationals Park in Washington, DC on July 29, 2024. Green Day’s U.S. and Canadian shows will feature support from Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid, and the up-and-coming sensation, The Linda Lindas. European fans are in for a treat as they will be warmed up by Nothing But Thieves, The Hives, Donots, The Interrupters, and Maid of Ace.

The band expressed their immense enthusiasm for this tour and their new record, “Saviors,” which is crafted to be an electrifying live experience. In a statement, they said, “We’ve never been more excited to unleash new music than with Saviors, a record that’s meant to be rocked live, together. So let’s thrash. We’ve got some amazing friends who are coming along for the ride!” This tour is not just about promoting their 14th studio album, known for its raw and emotional essence, but also celebrating the 30th anniversary of their breakthrough 1994 diamond-certified album “Dookie” and the 20th anniversary of “American Idiot,” released in 2004.

A European Prelude

The tour is set to kick off on May 30 with a festival show at O Son do Camino in Monte de Gozo, Spain. Subsequently, it will journey through Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, the Netherlands, and the UK before concluding on June 29 with a monumental show at London’s Wembley Stadium.

North American Stops

The North American leg of the tour promises to be a thrilling ride for fans across the continent. It includes performances at iconic venues such as New York’s Citi Field, Boston’s Fenway Park, Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Pittsburgh’s PNC Park, Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium, and a final scheduled concert at Petco Park in San Diego on September 28, 2024. The North American on-sale date is set for November 10, 2023, at 10 a.m. local time.

One standout feature of this tour is the presence of a video for the pop-punk anthem “Look Ma, No Brains!” The band introduced this track at a surprise Las Vegas club show last month, along with the powerful “The American Dream Is Killing Me.” Fans eagerly anticipate the release of “Saviors,” scheduled for January 19, 2024, on Reprise/Warner Records.

Glastonbury Festival Postpones 2024 Ticket Sales

In a surprising turn of events, Glastonbury Festival has decided to postpone the scheduled ticket sales for the 2024 edition of the festival. Originally planned for this week, the coach and ticket packages were set to go on sale at 6 pm GMT on November 2, followed by a general sale at 9 am GMT on November 5.

However, festival organizers have now confirmed that both sales will be delayed by two weeks. The new schedule indicates that coach and ticket packages will be available for purchase at 6 pm GMT on Thursday, November 16, 2023, with the general sale following at 9 am GMT on Sunday, November 19, 2023.

The decision to postpone the ticket sales is rooted in a commitment to ensuring that everyone interested in buying a ticket is registered and, thus, eligible to make a purchase. This decision stems from the aftermath of this year’s Festival when Glastonbury alerted individuals with registrations predating 2020 about a planned review of the information held by See Tickets in the Glastonbury Festival registration database. The purpose was to verify the currency of the details and to ensure that individuals’ information is not retained longer than necessary.

The statement from the festival organizers mentioned, “This year’s Glastonbury ticket sale has been moved back by two weeks. This is to ensure that everyone who would like to buy a ticket is registered and therefore eligible to purchase one.”

The registration window, which was re-opened to those affected by the review, was closed on Monday, October 30, 2023, before the ticket sale. However, it was discovered that some individuals, despite believing they were registered, were no longer listed as such.

Out of fairness to these individuals, the registration window is set to re-open on Monday, November 6, 2023, from 12 noon, and will remain open until 5 pm on Monday, November 13, 2023. Organizers are urging everyone hoping to buy a ticket for Glastonbury 2024 to either check their existing registration or submit a new registration. The registration process remains free of charge.

The festival organizers apologized for the last-minute change to the ticket sale dates but emphasized the importance of ensuring that all potential ticket buyers have the opportunity to confirm their registration.

Glastonbury Festival 2024 is scheduled to take place at the iconic Worthy Farm in Somerset from June 26 to 30, 2024. While no acts have been officially announced yet, co-organizer Emily Eavis has dropped hints that the 2024 festival could feature two female headliners and confirmed that the coveted legends slot will be occupied by a female artist.

Fans have been speculating about potential headliners for Glastonbury 2024, with Madonna and Rihanna being among the top contenders. Other rumored acts include Dua Lipa, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, and Blur. The festival’s first lineup poster is traditionally unveiled in March, offering eager festival-goers a glimpse of what to expect in the coming year.
