Grammy Award-winners Green Day will kick off a new tour Sept. 20 with a series of intimate club shows across the U.S. and Canada, including a Sept. 21 stop at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers are on the road in support of their upcoming 12th studio album, “Revolution Radio,” due out Oct. 7.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 9 at A special presale, for Idiot Nation fan club members will begin at 9 a.m. Sept. 7. Visit

The band kicks off a full-out European arena tour on Jan. 10, 2017, in Turin, Italy.

According to today’s official release, “‘Revolution Radio’ is a potent 12-track blitz of angst-ridden anthems that unites Green Day’s fully formed stylistic approach with lyrical themes that address the complexities and uncertainties of modern day existence. … Inspired by recent events, the first single, “Bang Bang,” marks a welcome return from a band with more to say than ever.”
