Green Day’s ‘Saviors Tour’ celebrates two classic albums, new release
The tour coincides with the 30th anniversary of Green Day’s classic debut “Dookie,” which burst onto the scene in 2004 with the melodic punky blasts of “Longview,” “Basket Case” and “Welcome to Paradise.”
Next year is also the 20th anniversary of the Southern California trio’s Grammy Award-winning “American Idiot” album, which featured the iconic songs “Wake Me Up When September Ends” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and spawned a Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical.
The tour is named after Green Day’s upcoming 14th studio album, “Saviors,” which is due out Jan. 19.
The group’s most recent Valley performance was in February of this year, headlining the first night of Innings Festival in Tempe.
