The concert series, which kicked off in 2013, has seen the likes of Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, Neil Young and The Who headline the Great Oak Stage in London’s famous Hyde Park while this year we saw Carole King bring her Tapestry album to life on the stage while Stevie Wonder, Florence + The Machine and Mumford & Sons also headlined.

Green Day return this month with their 12th studio record, their first since 2012’s trio of albums ¡Uno!¡Dos! and ¡Tré! and their subsequent tour which saw them perform seminal 1994 record Dookie in full both at the Brixton Academy and 2014’s Reading and Leeds festivals.

Revolution Radio is out this Friday before the Billie Joe Armstrong-led rock trio return to the UK next February for a trio of arena shows, including a stop at London’s O2 Arena before they return once more for July’s BST festival.

Tickets for Green Day’s BST slot on July 1st are on pre-sale from today if you’re with festival sponsor Barclaycard and go on general sale this Friday, to coincide with the release of Revolution Radio.

Thankfully, there will be no “Gold” or “Diamond” tickets for this show to fleece fans who want a good vantage point, although general admission tickets are £72.80 and priority entry is around £10 more.
