Green Day Debut ‘Revolution Radio’ Material at Tour Opener

The punk icons brought 'Revolution Radio' to Columbus.

By Hayden Wright

Green Day started their Revolution Radio promotional tour at the 1,700-capacity Newport Music Hall in Columbus, Ohio with a “Bang Bang.”

The lead single from upcoming album started the set, followed by the album’s title track. From there, Green Day meandered through their back catalog and even threw in a Stones-Beatles medley: “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” and “Revolution.” The concert went off without a hitch following three canceled opening dates on the club tour due to a health issue in the band.

Green Day devotees should be glad to know that American Idiot and more made appearances during the show: “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life),” a Green Day touchstone from Nimrod, was the second encore.

Revolution Radio comes out October 7.
