Green Day highlight Revolution Radio tour in new Youngblood video

Green Day are sharing highlights from their 2016-17 Revolution Radio world tour in a newly-released video for the track, “Youngblood.”

The tune is the final single issued from the San Francisco-based rockers’ twelfth album, which debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 upon its release in the fall of 2016.

Green Day played 120 shows on the tour, which got off to a rough start when they were forced to postpone the trek’s launch and three other shows of a month-long North American club tour due to an illness “affecting several members of the band and its crew.”

The group opened the run in Columbus, OH on September 26, 2016, before playing concert dates across North America, Europe, Oceania and Latin America, and closing out the series in Mexico City on November 19, 2017.

In sync with tour’s finale, Green Day released a best-of package, “Greatest Hits: God’s Favorite Band”, which delivered 20 hits from the band’s 31-year career alongside two new tracks: “Back In The USA” and a duet with Miranda Lambert on “Ordinary World.”

Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong recently confirmed via Instagram that he’s been working on new material for the follow-up to “Revolution Radio.”
