By now you know that Green Day released their newest album, ’21st Century Breakdown,’ today. If you didn’t know, it’s okay, just pretend. It’s getting good reviews and a Rolling Stone blog states, “The songs are defiant, but also defiantly hopeful, referencing the unsettled political climate as well as more personal and generational turmoils.”

It’s been almost five years since Green Day released a new studio album, but it’s only been three years since they’ve given a concert in Seattle. Wait. Only three years? Sorry, that’s too long, so in a one-two punch, Green Day is kicking off their 2009 tour right here in Seattle in July and tickets go on sale tomorrow. That’s Saturday, May 16.

The concert is on Friday, July 3 at 8:00 pm in Key Arena. Click here for tickets.
