Green Day: Announce first live dates of 2012
Green Day have announced their first 2012 live dates.
The band will perform their first scheduled gigs since 2010 at festivals in Japan and France later this year.
Green Day will headline Japan's Summer Sonic, as well as France's Rock En Seine, with both gigs taking place in August.
The 'Know Your Enemy' band are currently working on the follow-up album to 2009's 21st Century Breakdown.
Recently, the group described the new LP as "voyeuristic" and will be the first time they have "sung about f**king".
From October, they are set to bring their American Idiot musical to the UK.
