Detroit is one of just 12 cities Grammy Award-winning punk rockers Green Day will play to launch their 12th studio album, "Revolution Radio."
The group will stop Sept. 24 at the Fillmore Detroit, making its first metro area appearance in more than five years. Tickets go on sale at 9 .m. on Friday, Sept. 9, with a pre-sale for Green Day's Idiot Nation fan club starting Wednesday, Sept. 7. Details will be available at thefillmoredetroit.com and greenday.com.
The tour begins Sept. 20 in St. Louis and wraps Oct. 20 in Berkeley, Calif. "Revolution Radio" comes out Oct. 7 and has been preceded by the single "Bang Bang." It's Green Day's first release since 2012's "Uno!," "Dos!" and "Tres!," though promotion for those albums were limited after frontman Billie Joe Armstrong went into rehab. It also added Michigan native Jason White as an official member that year.
Green Day was subsequently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015.
In addition to the album, Armstrong's new movie, "Ordinary World," is due in theaters on October 14.
