‘Green Day’ reschedules from Aug 2020

Green Day, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer, three of the biggest acts in rock music, are gearing up to get back on the road this summer. The Hella Mega Tour, their U.S. headlining stadium run, kicks off with new 2021 dates beginning July 24 in Dallas, TX. and will be at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, FL. on July 31, 2021. Produced by Live Nation, the 21-city North American outing will bring the bands to some of the most renowned stadiums including Dodger Stadium, Wrigley Field, Citi Field, Fenway Park, and more, before wrapping up September 6 in Seattle, WA.  The Interrupters will appear as special guests on the tour.

Five-time Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Green Day unleash their brand-new song “Pollyanna”. Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, CA, Green Day is one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, with more than 70 million records sold worldwide and 10 billion cumulative audio/visual streams. Their 1994 breakout album Dookie, which sold over 10 million and achieved diamond status, is widely credited with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock, catapulting a career-long run of #1 hit singles. Entertainment Weekly calls Green Day, “The most influential band of their generation,” while Rolling Stone attests, “Green Day have inspired more young bands to start than any act this side of KISS, and that doesn't seem to be changing.” In 2004, Green Day released the rock opera American Idiot which captured the nation’s attention, selling more than 7 million copies in the U.S. alone and taking home the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. Mojo declared “It's exhilarating stuff, the kind of record that sets new parameters as to what is possible from a punk rock'n'roll band in the 21st century.” In 2010, a stage adaptation of American Idiot debuted on Broadway to critical and commercial acclaim.  Released last year, Green Day’s thirteenth studio album Father Of All... (Reprise/Warner Records) debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Album Sales Chart and #1 in both the U.K. and Australia. Pitchfork declared, “Green Day’s most fetching and youthful songs in ages. The trio sounds reinvigorated, more like hungry newcomers staking their claim.” Green Day will also be headlining Life is Beautiful festival in 2020- click here for all dates.

Multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominated Fall Out Boy most recently released the single “Dear Future Self (Hands Up)” ft. Wyclef Jean from their November 2019 record Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die - Volume Two. The song marked the band’s first new music since the August 2018 release of the three-song Lake Effect Kid EP, a love letter to their hometown city of Chicago that featured the full version of the band’s previously unreleased title track demo along with two new songs “City in A Garden” and “Super Fade.” In January 2019, Fall Out Boy was featured on the gold-certified track “I’ve Been Waiting,” a collaboration from Lil Peep and iLoveMakonnen. Fall Out Boy’s seventh studio album M A N I A debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in January 2018 and garnered a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Album. Their worldwide tour in support of the record included a hometown show at Wrigley Field. In January 2021, they performed at the We The People concert as part of the official 2021 Biden-Harris Inauguration.

Multi-platinum, GRAMMY award-winning band Weezer continues to be one of the most beloved and influential bands of the last twenty-five years.  The band has already had an amazing 2021 with the release of not one but two incredible albums: an orchestral pop record meditating on technology and disconnectedness called OK Human, and an homage to the band’s shared metal roots growing up called Van Weezer.  2021 will also see the band celebrating the 20th anniversary of Weezer (The Green Album) and the 25th anniversary of Pinkerton.  Weezer has sold 10 million albums in the U.S., and over 35 million records worldwide.  Their catalogue has included such megahits as “Buddy Holly,” “Undone (The Sweater Song),” “Say It Ain’t So,” “El Scorcho,” “Hash Pipe,” “Island In The Sun,” “Beverly Hills,” “Pork and Beans,” and more. Following massively acclaimed album releases in 2016 and 2017 (Weezer [The White Album] and Pacific Daydream, respectively), and two sold out amphitheatre tours with Panic! At the Disco (in 2016) and Pixies (in 2018), Weezer released a fan-inspired cover of Toto’s “Africa.” The cover propelled the band back into the charts across the board, and has since gone Platinum. They then surprise dropped a covers album in 2019 -- Weezer (The Teal Album) -- which has been streamed over a hundred million times since its release.

Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon comes to JAX

The Florida Theatre is pleased to announce
“Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon performed by Classic Albums Live on Saturday, August 7, 2021 at 8 p.m. Due to the popularity of the artist and/or the event, this show is being posted early on “Around Town With Ms. “V”, so that patrons may purchase tickets and guarantee their seats. COVID protocol may change by the time that this event is scheduled to take place.

Hailed as one of the greatest albums of all time, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon was released on March 1, 1973, and subsequently charted for more than 900 weeks, selling an estimated 45 million worldwide. Classic Albums Live performs the groundbreaking album in its entirety, note-for-note and cut-for-cut, including megahits “Money,” “Us and Them,” and “The Great Gig in the Sky.”

Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live has become the ultimate destination for music lovers wanting to hear the greatest albums performed live without all the gimmickry and cheesy impersonations. Relying only on the music, using what Martin refers to as 'the world's best musicians,' Classic Albums Live has defined itself as a mainstay in Performing Arts Centers across North America.

Martin shares some behind-the-scenes insight into Classic Albums Live’s performance of Pink Floyd – The Dark Side of the Moon:
“The Dark Side of the Moon came out in 1973. It was everywhere. The album cover prism was drawn on countless school binders. We started paying attention to the sound of cash registers. Having a good stereo system was a thing. Classic Albums Live knows how to perform this album. It’s complex and full of soul. Just getting the alarm clocks together was a feat. All the little voices. Then you had to find someone that could sing ‘Great Gig in the Sky”. We did, and it’s joyous. The musicians care about this album. It was our flagship show in 2003. It’s the album that changed everything. It’s a masterpiece that will be remembered forever.”
