Green Day at Sheffield Arena and special guests Rancid
Photos and review
by Jo Forrest,

THE American band, Green Day, has been hailed as 1 of the best live rock bands of the 21st century and have been doing a quick tour of the UK in recent days. We got the chance to see the band at the Sheffield Arena along with the support band Rancid. The punk rock still show youthful exuberance when performing, despite their careers spanning the over 3 decades! The event was not simply a night for nostalgia, as they added tracks from their band's latest album:- 'Revolution Radio' that seemed to go down very well with the audience. Also doing an amazing performance was support band Rancid  who have a album out called:- 'Trouble Maker.' To celebrate the group being on tour in the UK the had a very cool limited edition shirt on sale at both Hyde Park and at Sheffield. Interestingly it is worth noting that Green Day was the headline British Summer Time, Hyde Park, London, on Saturday, 1 July 2017. Sadly this year the band did not get a chance to head to Liverpool, but it will be worth fans on Merseyside to keep an eye out on their next Tour of the UK. Sadly for Scottish fans, this tour a few days later became a "wash out," as the UK Tour promoters had to cancel a concert by Green Day in Glasgow, only hours before it was due to begin, because "adverse weather conditions" meant it was "no longer safe" for the bands to perform. This decision left some fans "very distraught." Luckily for fans in Sheffield, weather is never an issue at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield  ever since the very large indoor music and entertainment venue opened in 1991. Please let us know if you attened any of the tour dates via emailing us to:- Also please do let us know if you would like to see Green Day and/or Rancid visit our fantastic City, Liverpool, via Tweeting:- "#Liverpool #UK would welcome @greenday & @Rancid in 2018... @SouthportReport" Ok we know our readers will not do it, but its good to think you will...
