We are a booking agent for Green Day, and you can hire Green Day for your corporate event or private function. Green Day is an American rock trio formed in 1987. Booking Green Day for your event will always make a huge impact. The band has sold over 22 million records in the US. They have won three Grammy Awards; Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot, and Record of the Year for Boulevard of Broken Dreams.
The band has consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar, vocals), and Tré Cool (drums, percussion) for the majority of its existence. Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street, Berkeley, CA. Its early releases for independent record label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fan base, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label.
Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie (1994) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the US and 15 million worldwide. As a result, Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States.
Green Day’s three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum, double platinum, and gold status respectively. Green Day’s 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band’s popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the U.S. The band’s eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown, was released on May 15, 2009.
