Green Day Performing in Toronto for World Cup of Hockey

Fresh off dropping a single that sounds like a return to the good ol' days, Green Day just announced they're playing in Toronto on September 23 for the World Cup of Hockey. Tickets for the event go on sale September 8 at 10 a.m. local time for $25.

It's a busy time for Green Day, whose album Revolution Radio comes out October 7. It'll be their 12th(!) studio album, and if "Bang Bang" is any indication, it's gonna be great. Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is also set to appear in the film Ordinary World, which is set for an October 14 release. He plays an aging rocker whose modern-day family collides with his punk rock past. I'm sure that was a stretch for him as an actor. The film also stars Fred Armisen, Judy Greer and Selma Blair.

For now, let's just enjoy "Bang Bang" over a long weekend. We've certainly earned it.
