Following on from an epic series of show from Foo Fighters at Emirates Old Trafford last week, Californian punks Green Day pick up the mantle as they head to the stadium as part of their The Saviors tour - a celebration of their fourteenth studio album.

The legendary rock band have been playing venues across North America and Europe this year, and on Friday (June 21), they'll be playing some of their biggest hits for Manchester fans. It promises to be a ‘larger-than-life, career-spanning celebration of one of the biggest musical acts of all time and some of the most important albums in history'.

Made up of Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool, Green Day is best known for tracks such as hits American Idiot, 21 Guns and Boulevard of Broken Dreams. They will be supported on the Manchester date by Nothing But Thieves and Maid of Ace.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Green Day’s 1994 certified Diamond album, Dookie, and the 20th anniversary of 2004’s American Idiot. With The Saviors tour, Green Day will bring their impressive back catalogue of hits to crowds, along with new additions from Saviours, which was released earlier this year.

Announcing the tour last November, Green Day said: "We’ve never been more excited to unleash new music than with Saviors, a record that’s meant to be rocked live, together. So let’s thrash. We’ve got some amazing friends who are coming along for the ride!”

Green Day had originally planned to tour in 2020 with Weezer and Fall Out Boy on the Hella Mega Tour, but the tour was delayed due to the pandemic. Other UK dates on the Saviors Tour include Isle of Wight Festival on June 23, Glasgow on June 25, Dublin on June 27 and Wembley Stadium in London on June 29.

Who are the support acts?

Support on the UK shows comes from Maid Of Ace, and special guests Nothing But Thieves.

Maid of Ace, based out of Hastings, are a punk rock band consisting of sisters Alison Cara Elliott, Anna Coral Elliott, Amy Catherine Elliott, and Abby Charlotte Elliott. To date, they have to date self-released three albums and made several high-profile festival performances including Glastonbury in 2015.

In October 2015, they released their self-titled debut album, followed by widely acclaimed second album, Broken Machine, which was released in September 2017.

Their third studio album Moral Panic landed in October 2020, while their fourth, Dead Club City, released last year, became their first UK No.1 album. Hits for the band include Amsterdam, Something On My Mind, Overcome and Welcome to DCC.

By Metrolink:

Fans are advised to travel to the show via public transport as there is no car parking available at Old Trafford Cricket Ground - except for accessibility parking which can be booked via the Emirates Old Trafford website. Those travelling by tram can reach the Old Trafford tram stop, connected to the Bury and Altrincham lines, which is located right next to the ground.

Stretford, Old Trafford, A56 Chester Road and Altrincham Metrolink Line stops are all set to be busier as a result of the concerts, particularly as big gigs are also taking place across town on both of those nights at Co-op Live where revellers are also being encouraged to use the trams.

After the concert, fans can use the Old Trafford station for journeys back into the city centre and Trafford Bar for southbound journeys on the East Didsbury or Airport lines. The gig will conclude by 10.30pm and the last tram from Old Trafford to the city centre will depart at 1.08am and towards Altrincham at 12.29am. The last tram from Trafford Bar to East Didsbury will depart at 11.46pm and to the Airport at 11.31pm.

By car:

If driving to the concert, be warned the Mancunian Way and Bridgewater Way towards Emirates Old Trafford will be extremely busy.

And after the show, Chester Road towards the M60 and routes including Wharfside Way, Village Way and Parkway towards the M60 will also be heavily congested with delays expected. Fans can park for free at Parkway or Sale Water Park and use Park and Ride services to board the tram to Trafford Bar/Wharfside. Fans can also park at Old Trafford Football ground, but fees apply.


Taxi drop off and pick up will be Chorley Street - for Northbound destinations - or Tesco Superstore on Chester Road for Southbound Destinations.

Will there be road closures?

The roads around the stadium (Brian Statham Way, Great Stone Road, Warwick Road and Talbot Road at the front of the ground) will have closures in place during the concert.
