Green Day & Franz Ferdinand @ The Fabulous Forum Tues 8/25 (On-sale Sat 6/6 10 am)
If you would have told me in the early 1990’s that Green Day and Pearl Jam would go on become the two most important American rock bands in the year 2009, I would have said, “Get the hell right out of here and close the door behind you, but leave me some of that pizza for later.”
And yet, here we are, nearly twenty years later, and the world is a very different place. We have a Black president, Conan is on at 11:30, our sub sandwiches are now toasted to golden perfection, and we watch According To Jim on our iPhones. And wouldn’t you know it, Green Day and Pearl Jam are right there at the top of the rock heap.
While we have no 2009 Pearl Jam dates for LA just yet (though hopefully expect some around the time they hit the coast for Outside Lands up north in August) Green Day have announced a Forum gig for August 25. Franz Ferdinand, no lightweights themselves, open the show while you are stuck in traffic on the 405.
Tickets are on sale with the usual KROQ pre-sale today at 10 am [password: KNOWYOURKROQ--get it?] with the general on-sale at the traditional 10 am Saturday.
