During the last six months, Green Day released one full-length album with a portrait of each band member on the cover—take that, Kiss circa 1978—and now they’re about to take those three albums and those 30-something songs on the road from arena to arena across America. Except for a show at Fox Pomona and two more mid-size spots, where you’ll have a rare chance to see this indestructible pop-punk band at the kind of place they would have played at the beginning of the Clinton presidency. Each of the Uno!/Dos!/Tre! albums has its own sort of character, with Dos! the most off-center and intriguing and Uno! the most happily classic, but for the most part this is Green Day as the universe intends: Cheap Trick for the 21st Century.
