Green Day Announce Cleveland Show Prior to R&R Hall of Fame Ceremony
April 2, 2015
After a year-long hiatus from touring, pop punk royalty Green Day have announced a one-off show at the House of Blues in Cleveland on April 16th. The show precedes the band’s induction ceremony into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which will be held at the Cleveland Public Auditorium on April 18th.
An exclusive presale date will be made available for all Idiot Nation fan club members starting Tuesday, April 2nd at 10am EST. Presale will run until inventory is gone. The general public will have access to tickets beginning Wednesday, April 3rd at 10am EST. Despite being a credit entry only event, a number of tickets have already hit the secondary market and can be found below. The House of Blues Cleveland holds a max capacity of 1,200, and tickets are expected to sell out quickly.
Green Day took a break from performing live in the wake of their massive ‘Uno! Dos! Tre!’ Tour, which ran in conjunction with the band’s 2012 trilogy release. More known to take on arena and stadium-size venues since the monumental release of American Idiot in 2004, the East Bay punks will perform an intimate set in Cleveland later this month.
The quartet will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Ringo Starr, The “5” Royales, and Lou Reed. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Bill Withers and Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble also get the nod during this year’s ceremony.
