The advent of the ‘90s brought several underground musical styles to the wider audience. Green Day used its pop punk sounds to enter the mainstream with great success. While many Green Day fans would mark the band’s sophomore effort “Kerplunk” as its breakout album, the 1994 album “Dookie” allowed this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band to enter the charts through immortal hits such as “Longview,” “Welcome to Paradise” and “Basket Case.”
Currently Green Day is touring in support of its latest release, “Revolution Radio.” After its gentle acoustic intro, the band delivers an injection of those adrenalized, power chord-driven pop punk anthems they are known for.
U.K. outfit Catfish and the Bottlemen will warm up the crowd with their indie rock sounds. This group features clean lyrical and instrumental work sandwiched between powerful rock hooks. Catfish and the Bottlemen will be performing cuts from their hit album “The Ride,” which has topped the charts in both the U.S. and the U.K.
