Pop-punk rockers Green Day have announced their first show of 2015

Green Day have taken the first part of 2015 off from playing shows, but that’s all about to change. The pop-punk band has announced its first show of 2015, and it’s a small gig April 16 at play the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio.

Since the House of Blues is more intimate than most of the venues Green Day plays at this point in their career, tickets are scare. Those who are a member of Green Day’s Idiot Nation fan club will have special to tickets starting today (April 2) at 10 a.m. ET. Tickets will go on sale to the general public Friday (April 3) at 10 a.m. ET. For more information on finding tickets, head to Green Day’s official website.

Green Day’s show happens two days before the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which also takes place in Cleveland. Green Day is a new inductee into the Rock Hall.

Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told Rolling Stone late last year that it was an incredible feeling to find out he and the guys of Green Day would be inducted into the Rock Hall.

“For me, rock ‘n’ roll is not an outdated term. To me, it means freedom,” Armstrong told the publication. “It was a way for me to express myself and I’m eternally grateful for the fact that I’ve been able to do that pretty much my whole life. It’s never lost that meaning for me, whether I’m a fan myself or for Green Day fans. It’s just the most liberating thing in the world. The fact that we’re getting recognized for it in the company we have, it’s just an incredible feeling.”
