Green Day announces Euro stadium dates

To play one Paris and two U.K. shows next summer

LONDON -- Fresh from completing a U.K. arena tour in support of its latest studio set "21st Century Breakdown" (Reprise/Warner Bros.), Green Day has announced two U.K. stadium shows to be held next summer.

The Manchester and London dates will be the band's first U.K. stadium-sized shows since its two-night stand at Milton Keynes National Bowl in 2005, documented on the band's live album "Bullet In A Bible" (Reprise/Warner Bros.).

Tickets for the U.K. shows go on sale at 9am GMT on Friday with prices beginning at £39.50 ($64.60). Tickets can be purchased from, and
