Although it's still months away, ticket sales are now open for Green Day Live in Bangkok 2020 which will take place on March 11 at Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani.

The five-time Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees announced that they will embark on a global tour in 2020. The band had huge success with both of their Thai gigs in 1996 and 2010. They are a group whose music is able to totally shake the walls while performing and in March next year Green Day will quench their fans' thirst for their music and mega energy.

Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, California, Green Day is one of the world's best-selling bands of all time, with more than 70 million records sold worldwide and 10 billion cumulative streams. Their 1994 breakout album Dookie, which sold over 10 million and achieved diamond status, is widely credited with popularising and reviving mainstream interest in punk, catapulting a career-long run of No.1 hit singles. In 2004, Green Day released the rock opera American Idiot which captured the nation's attention, selling more than 7 million copies in the US alone and taking home the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. In 2010, a stage adaptation of American Idiot debuted on Broadway to critical and commercial acclaim.

Entertainment Weekly calls Green Day "The most influential band of their generation," while Rolling Stone attests, "Green Day have inspired more young bands to start than any act this side of KISS, and that doesn't seem to be changing."
