Green Day to give Irish fans the time of their lives next summer

The rockers will play an outdoor gig in Royal Hospital Kilmainham on June 29.

(And yes, we still find the phrase 'outdoor gig in Ireland' a little strange).

"This is an over 18’s event, patrons are requested to respect the privacy and property of local residents."

The gig will also feature special guests, Rancid.

The announcement comes shortly after the release of Green Day's 12th studio album, Revolution Radio, which launched last month.

The band, who are one of the world's best-selling bands of all time, released their 12th studio album, entitled “Revolution Radio” this year.
