Just in from the St. Pete Times Forum:

Green Day are touring in support of their long-awaited eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown, which will be released globally by Reprise Records on Friday, May 15.
Green Day recently performed 21st Century Breakdown in its entirety during a series of club shows for hometown fans in the San Francisco Bay Area. In its review of a show at Oaklands Fox Theater, Rolling Stone commented that the band, augmented by guitarists Jason White and Jeff Matika and keyboardist Jason Freese, had the Quadrophenia-like hang of 21st Century Breakdowns classic rock melodies and lifetime-punk drive down solid and that the album is rock opera in which the rock always comes first.
