There is some buzz going around on the internet about the famous Punk Rock band Green Day Performing in Nepal. Robin /Rocks Presents announced they will be managing the most significant event in 2020.
A lot of facebook pages have been posting about Green Day touring Nepal in March of 2020. However, there is no mention of Nepal’s event on Green Day’s Official website. Still, event manager for Robin /Rocks Presents claimed talk is going on with band representative for March 2020, and Bille Joe Amstrong will publish about the event on the band’s website soon.
Robin Basnet, Event Manager at Robin /Rocks Presents, also told NepMag that detail about ticketing would be out soon.
Green Day is one of the best Rock bands in the world and has a massive following around the world, including Nepal. Songs like American Idiot, Boulevard of broken dreams, Basket Case, Longview, and When I come around are some of their massive hits. Watching Green Day in Nepal is probably a dream come true for many Nepali fans.
Green Day was formed in the East Bay of California in 1986 by lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist Mike Dirnt. For much of the band’s career, they have been a trio with drummer Tré Cool, who replaced John Kiffmeyer in 1990 before the recording of the band’s second studio album, Kerplunk (1991). Touring guitarist Jason White became a full-time member in 2012 but returned to his role as a touring member in 2016.
Green Day was originally part of the punk scene at the DIY 924 Gilman Street club in Berkeley, California. The band’s early releases were with the independent record label Lookout! Records. In 1994, their major-label debut Dookie, released through Reprise Records, became a breakout success and eventually shipped over 10 million copies in the U.S.
