US punk-pop band Green Day will return to Ireland for a show at the Point Theatre, Dublin on 31 January 2005.

The three-piece - Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals/guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass/vocals) and Tre Cool (drums/vocals) - played a sold-out intimate concert at the Ambassador in August.

The band recently achieved their first Number 1 in the US album charts with their new release, 'American Idiot'.

Green Day have been nominated for Best Rock Act at this year's MTV Europe Music Awards, which will be held in Rome on 18 November.

Tickets from €35 will go on sale this Friday, 15 October, from usual outlets nationwide.
