Green Day announced their first concert in over a year this last week, and the show picked up a lot of press. Both for being Green Day's first show and the fact that it managed to sell out almost instantly. Here's a collection of some of those stories:

[quote]Yep, it looks as though the punk-rock Godfathers are getting ready to make their return – following bassist Mike Dirnt’s words that Green Day are “gearing up to kick ass again” – with a show at Cleveland’s House Of Blues on April 16. The band will be performing there with special guest Jesse Malin, ahead of their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 18. SWEET![/quote]
