Green Day return to play summer Marlay Park gig

International superstars Green Day are returning to Dublin next summer for one gig in Marlay Park.

Having played to a sold-out O2 just two months ago, the Holiday singers are coming back for more on June 23.

Promoters MCD have exclusively revealed to the Herald that tickets will go on sale this week for what is expected to be one of the biggest concerts in 2010. The announcement comes after the three-piece stormed Rolling Stone Magazine's decade-end Readers' Poll.

The Californian outfit who, formed in 1987, won number one artist, album and song of the decade beating our own U2, Radiohead and Coldplay.

During their last visit to Dublin in October, the trio played a 34-song setlist. The band also wooed Irish fans by performing Thin Lizzy's Boys are Back in Town and The Undertones' Teenage Kicks.

Tickets for the Marlay Park gig go on sale at 9am this Friday at Ticketmaster outlets.
