Green Day

So, could it be them for the JP secret set on Sunday?  They have a gap in their tour on the Sunday and are playing with Amyl and the Sniffers on tour who are confirmed for JP tent on the Sunday.  Could be similar to Killers with JP secret set followed by headline slot next year.

Nope. It's a travel day.

It’s a travel day for Amyl & The Sniffers too then, but they are playing Glastonbury. That being said, Green Day will have a bigger setup so it’s probably not them. Can’t be discounted though.

My mate actually bumped into Billie Joe in London last weekend! He was on site at Glasto in 2019 watching his son's band.

Secret set would be very good fun but don't know if I can see it happening in JP - even with their lack of relevancy these days they're still a colossal-sized band, would be like when The Killers played (as in rammed as fk). Suppose if their support act are playing that day it's not out of the question that they'd be travelling the same route.

Don't see them headlining next year (or ever) though, think if they ever play it will be a secret set or 'special guest' slot kind of thing, like what Aerosmith were originally booked as.

More of a Reading and Leeds type band aren't they? I'd be so disappointed if they were to play. 

I'd probably go and check them out just because I never got the chance before, but if it was mostly new stuff would be gutted. They are basically a different band pre and post American Idiot

This post does not exist anymore, but I got a screenshot of Billie Joe Armstrong being at the festival in 2019. I think his son performed there. So he definitely gets the idea.. of the place. I'd agree it's highly unlikely, but it fits too perfectly.

Just seems too coincidental and if they can put the Killers on the JP in an afternoon set then why not Green Day.  Billie Joe wants to show the rest of the band what the festival is like.  Plenty of time to get to Dublin for the Monday.

The rearranged Hella Mega tour is running to the same schedule as originally planned. They would have had the same rest day coinciding with Glasto in 2020. 
 

Doesn’t mean they are playing though.

Even on their latest tours, with new albums to promote, they still lean heavily on American Idiot/Dookie/Nimrod and the like. 

I agree on that assessment, but having seen them live, I can't recommend enough if you are into that older stuff.

Green day did play a secret set at Reading 2012 the day before they had a gig in France. 

Also did 4 consecutive days of gigs that tour as well….

 

 

They didn't play the festival they played Shepard's empire, 1800 ish capacity.  I know, I was there 🙂

That was some gig.  As one of my fav bands would love to see them at Glasto but cant see it.

Can confirm, I was at the secret Reading set at 2012 in the NME Stage and it was incredible - was about 11am in the morning. I think Green Day is as valid as any other act for this slot, I was actually kind of surprised they didn't headline the Sunday in the end.

I was there, sprinted from the campsite to get in that tent.

I really wouldnt worry about that if they did perform. Probably 1 song post American Idiot and the rest is older stuff. If they only have an hour they wouldnt waste time on not appeasing the crowd.

The last time I saw them in 2018 they did 3 songs from their latest album and got them out of the way early on. The rest was everything else you likely want to hear.

If they were the JP tbc I might see em, maybe not The Park.

I found a video many years ago of hundreds of people just running to the arenas as soon as they saw Billie Joe’s ‘what rhymes with shredding’ tweet. They had to close the stage and play it on screen. On the main one!

It was insane, I got in to the tent just in time before they closed it off
