The dates are just two more in an already very busy schedule for the trio. The band will kick off its tour on Thursday, March 28th and will tour across the country through April 18th before heading overseas for the European leg of its tour. The tour is in support of the band’s recently released trilogy, Uno!, Dos!, and Tre! Also recently announced is the upcoming debut of the band’s documentary, Cuatro!, at the 20th annual SXSW Film Conference and Festival. The documentary follows the band as it brings its trilogy from concept to store shelves. It also includes some very special performances recorded along the way. The 20th annual SXSW Film Conference and Festival runs from March 8th – 16th in Austin, TX.
Also debuting at the annual event is the Doug Hamilton directed, Broadway Idiot. The film follows Billie Joe Armstrong as he ventures into the world of Broadway and turns the band’s album, American Idiot into the massive stage success that it is today.
