On this week...

In 2009:

Green Day played the last 2 shows of their 21st Century Breakdown UK arena tour, finishing with the 2nd of 2 nights in Manchester on Halloween night, and finally a 3rd performance in London, this time at Wembley Arena.

That wasn't quite it though, as the event that many fans were speculating about, became a reality when the Foxboro Hot Tubs played their first gig in London, at The Garage in Islington, immediately after the Wembley show. It was an incredible night of trademark Foxboro drunken debauchery!

As Green Day headed to Germany to continue the rest of their European tour, The Reverend Strychnine Twitch gave us some idea of how they were feeling the following day, with this tweet:

"Dear baby girls,Guess which members of the hot tubs puked after the show?-theRev"

It was also announced that Green Day would be back to play their biggest show to date, at Wembley Stadium the following summer.
