Punk band Green Day are set to give fans the time of their lives when they return to Dublin next year.

The group will take to the stage at Royal Hospital Kilmainham on June 29 with special guests Rancid. Tickets for the gig are priced at €59.50 and go on sale this Friday at 9am.

Promoters MCD said the gig is restricted to over 18s only and they also advised fans who plan to travel to the gig next summer that there is no parking at the venue and to use public transport and city centre car parks.

The announcement comes shortly after the release of Green Day's 12th studio album, Revolution Radio, which launched last month.

The record's lead single Bang Bang, based on the culture of mass shooting in America, was previously released to a warm critical reception from fans.

During a performance of the song at the recent American Music the band tweaked the lyrics to criticise President-elect Donald Trump.

Lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong sang: "No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA."
